A Foodbank lesson – one chicken for six meals on Coast Live

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - In recognition of the 20th Annual Mayflower Marathon Food and Fund Drive, the Foodbank brought Chef Damon Covington of the Urban Culinary Institute to Coast Live to help us see how a family can stretch a single small chicken over six separate meals. It’s one way to cope with being food insecure.

Here are the recipes Chef Covington was referring to on the show:ucilogoOven Roasted Barbecue Chicken Drums
Lemon-Peppered Boneless Skinless Seared Chicken Thighs
Rice Pilaf
Asian-Style Chicken Stir Fry
Cajun Chicken Penne
Chicken Stock
