7lb chicken: Best use(s)?

mrbozo | May 26, 2008 01:20 PM

I couldn't resist. A local supermarket had a cooler full of these big birds at 5.99 each. They looked fine, felt plump and meaty.

Now, I've never tangled with a hen this size before. I assume at this weight these are mature birds. Another clue is that the Portuguese on the price sticker reads "Galinha da sopa" (which I translate as "soup chicken"). I'm fine with making a hearty stock but I was wondering if there are other viable recipes for a specimen this large?
