2ish pounds of boneless chicken breast $4 (original recipe called for 3-4 lbs bone-in chicken)
1 onion, sliced $.50
1/4 cup oil $.25
1/2 cup flour $0.50 (less if you don’t use GF
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 cup chicken broth $0.10
1 12(?) oz can of diced tomatoes $1
1 4 oz can mushrooms, drained $0.70
1 cup of black olives $0.75
1/2 cup broth $0.05
1. Saute onions in oil until soft
2. Dredge chicken in flour, salt, and pepper, then brown in pan with oil and onion.
3. Pour in 1 cup of broth. Simmer uncovered till liquid is mostly gone.
4. Dump in remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered until desired thickness.
Served with 2 lbs buttered potatoes ($1.25) and bag of steamed veggies with butter ($1.35)
So, total cost was about $10.50 for six people, less than $2/serving. And it was delicious! It could be made for less $ with different meat., and it would still be tasty without mushrooms and olives.
