Rinse, trim, then cook or store
Rinse the chicken pieces in cold water. Trim off any bits of bone, cartilage and fat.
Now you're ready to cook your favourite chicken dish with the right pieces. Or, you can freeze the pieces in individual packets to use later.
Here's another money-saving tip: If you like to make chicken stock, drop the remainder of the bones, including the neck and giblets, into a saucepan with some water and vegetables. You can freeze homemade stock for use later.
