September is birthday month around here. My second son turns 9 this week and requested steak. So in order to get that in the menu I tried to be extra thrifty with our other meals. I had lots of chicken meat leftover from a roasted chicken last week that I used to make White Chicken Chili. I'll be adding that meat to our menu in the form of a stir fry and then boiling down the carcass for the last of the meat and broth for delicious homemade chicken noodle soup.
