These are 2 recipes that I use fairly often. I almost always have the ingredients on hand, they're delicious, and most importantly...they're cheap.
Crockpot Shredded Chicken (serves 2 adults, 2 toddlers)
3 Chicken Breasts (Or Pork Chops or any Combination of the 2)
1 Chopped Onion
1 Bottle of BBQ Sauce
Throw it all in a crockpot on low and cook til the Chicken's done, about 3 or 4 hours. Use 2 forks to shred the Chicken and Serve on Bread or Rolls.
Tip: Sometime the BBQ sauce will get too thin for my liking. When this happens I take the top off of the Crockpot for the last 30 mins and it'll thicken right up.
Italian Stew...or something. (Easily serves 4 adults, 2 toddlers)
2-3 Chicken Breasts or Italian Sausage
4 Cups of Chicken Broth or White Wine or Water
2 Cups frozen Spinach
1 Can of Butter Beans or Cannelini Beans
1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
Cook Chicken til almost done. Toss in medium soup pot. Add rest of ingredients. Cook til heated through and yummy. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if you'd like.
