Chicken Alfredo on the Cheap

If you read the Pig post then you proabaly remember the cheap chciken and chicken helper. Usually lunches are sandwiches, raw fruits and veggies, salads or soups. I wanted some good, hearty, stick to your ribs food today. It is only 30ish for the high and that is COLD for this southern girl! I know many of you are much colder and all I can say is move South! LOL! Just kidding!

So this is what I came up with. I fixed the chicken alfredo helper as directed BUT
I only added one very large breast of chicken instead of the four it called four. It was plenty! I also added a can of small tender english peas. It was delicious!

1 piece of chicken $1
chicken helper $.70
1 can peas $.33

Total cost of lunch for 3 for 2 days $2.03! Yippee! Love it when you eat healthy on the cheap!

Blessings!!!

WOW, TALK ABOUT SOME CHEAP BUT GOOD EATS. I PLAN ON GOING THE PIGGLY WIGGLY TOMORROW TO STOCK UP THE FREEZER WITH CHICKEN. MY HUSBAND DOES NOT EAT HAMBURGER SO WE MOSTLY EAT CHICKEN. I ALWAYS HAVE MY MAMA AND SISTER ON THE LOOKOUT FOR CHICKEN THAT IS ON SALE. I ALSO LOVE GREAT DEALS AT THE GROCERY STORE SOME OF THE PRICES ARE CRAZY RIDICULOUS...PASS ALONG ANY OTHER SALES THAT YOU KNOW OF...THANKS!!!

I love stretching meat like that- I always see how little I can get away with so I can stretch that buck a little further. Way to go with your inexpensive dish, Marva! Am so proud of you!
