I roast a chicken once a week (or every ten days) for a delicious meal. I then take the chicken and make it into delicious chicken stock which I use as the base of all my cooking. It is packed with essential fatty acids and protein.
As you know
I follow Petronella’s The Human Being Diet plan
so if you’re interested, you can should read the book first which you can buy here.
This is a family sized meal.
