Kroger’s Heritage Farms chicken quarters are usually $6.90 per bag, occasionally on sale for $5.99. You get 10 lbs., which often comes to 10 quarters (sometimes 9 to 11 pieces).

I wait until they are on sale for $3.90 per bag, then buy four bags and put the quarters into individual lunch bags (3 cents each) and freeze them. For this page, I used a price of .39 per quarter (includes sandwich bag).

If you’re a Publix shopper, they put their $1.50 chicken quarters on BOGO. You pay half price, but still about .75 per pound per Kroger’s on-sale price of .59.
