M-O-O-N spells chicken

A cookie to the first person who knows what the title refers to.

Yesterday, boneless chicken breasts were on sale at Stop&Shop for $1.69 per lb. Excellent price, and this Atkin's girl was just about out of chicken, so I bought about 18 lbs. (I saved over $40.00!) I eat a salad with grilled chicken every day for lunch, and of course chicken can be used to make one million and one yummy low-carb suppers, so it's a big staple for me.

Now I have to trim it all up, grill most if it on my handy-dandy George Forman grill, and freeze it all. I suspect it is going to take me the greater portion of the night.

Here's what I'm starting with:

Note that I already broke into the first pack last night to whip up some buffalo fingers.

I'll keep you updated.


Most of the cutting is done, and grilling is in process:

The remainder of the chicken is trimmed, portioned off, and put in the freezer, along with about 3 lbs of center cut pork chops that were also on sale. And I took the trash out.

Grilling still in progress.

Grilling nearly done. Only two batches to go.
Time to start chopping and bagging.

Grilling completed! Now I just have to finish slicing it all, and portion it off into tiny little ziplock snackbags. And clean the grill. I don't think I've ever seen such a big bowl of chicken.

I'm getting a little tired.

Finished! I ended up with three gallon-freezer-bags full of little bags of cut-up grilled chicken; eight more raw breasts in four bags in the freezer, and six raw pork chops in three bags. I will have some food for a while. I was going to make up the salads for the week, too, but I think that will wait until tomorrow.

I've even washed all my bowls, cutting boards, knives, and the grill!

And in plenty of time to rest before Drive starts.

It must have been the weekend for bulk cooking, because I did a marathon on Friday night. Your chicken breasts look tasty, too. Maybe I should do something like that for my carnivores.
