Roasted Chicken Deli Meat

Tammy Brownlow


Back to basics!

How much do you pay at the deli counter for roasted chicken sliced thin at the deli counter? I made this for about $1.99 per pound.

You will love the flavor and be very happy with the results. Once you have made this, you will want to start experimenting with additional flavor components.

7Place a towel folded over in your refrigerator. When pan is cool enough to handle, place in refrigerator with the weight on top. I chose a heavy canister to place in the dish.
