Whole Chicken Recipes

Not long after we were married I remember looking up instructions on how to boil chicken and cooking whole chicken. Not long after we were trying things like chicken tikka masala recipe and a broccoli casserole. We tried everything including chicken enchilada soup recipe and chicken wraps.
