Whole roasted chickens are $5 each today, Friday, Aug. 23, at Whole Foods. No coupon required.
This would be a great price at any grocery store, but it's especially good at Whole Foods, where the roasted chickens are antibiotic-free and free of growth hormones. And you don't have to turn the oven on or cook -- a great thing on a Friday evening in summer.
The sale is Friday only, while supplies last. Rainchecks won't be given.
Frugal tip: Serve the chicken for Friday's dinner, then use the leftovers to make another meal, such as chicken salad or barbecue chicken pizza. Stick the carcass in a pot and make broth for a third meal of soup or stew.
That's a lot of mileage out of a $5 chicken.
