Day 184

Day 184 - Dinner left overs!!  Last night for dinner we had Bacon, Ranch Chicken subs and D only ate 1/2 of hers (which is more than enough for her).  So she has the other 1/2 of that some strawberries, tangelo slices and red and orange tomatoes.

Ranch Chicken
1 (6lb) whole chicken
1 stick butter softened
1 T buttermilk ranch seasoning

Preheat the oven to 325.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil, set aside.  I like to butterfly the chicken so it cooks quicker.   So using very sharp kitchen scissors I remove the back bone and press the chicken flat.  Combine the softened butter and ranch seasoning.  Loosen the skin on the chicken.  I spread about a tablespoon of the seasoned butter per side so it would be for the breast and thigh/leg, under the skin.  Bake for approx 1 hour, check for doneness with a meat thermometer.  Remove from oven and let cool a bit.  You can eat this how ever you want.  Last night I shredded the meat with 2 forks and used it in sandwiches.  I cooked some bacon till crispy.  Some mayo, cheddar cheese, bacon and shredded chicken in a sub roll then cooked on my George Foreman type grill.
