Bargain Meal of the Week

Okay Dad, this Sunday is Mother's Day and she deserves a break from cooking, right?
With money tight for so many people, taking Mom out for lunch or dinner may not be in the budget. Well, here is an easy recipe for you so you and the kids can make an easy but yummy dinner for Mom.

Angel Chicken
(Since Mom is such an Angel!)

4 oz (1/2 of 8 oz pkg) cream cheese, softened ($0.50)
1 can (10 3/4 oz) cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken soup ($.80)
1/4 cup Italian dressing (pennies)
1/4 dry white wine (or you can use chicken broth) (cost of broth = pennies)
1-1/2 lb chicken cut into bite-size pieces ($1.47* or $4.47*)
1/2 pound angel hair pasta, uncooked ($0.50)
2 Tbs chopped fresh parsley, optional

Beat cream cheese, soup, dressing and wine (or chicken broth) with a whisk until blended; pour over chicken in a slow cooker (Crock Pot). Cover. Cook on HIGH 2 to 3 hours or on LOW 4 to 5 hours.

Cook pasta as directed on package about 15 minutes before chicken is done; drain. Serve topped with chicken mixture and parsley.

*This week Ingles has bone-in split chicken breast on sale for $0.98 per lb. You will need to de-done the breast, remove the skin and cut into bite size pieces. They also have Tyson trimmed and ready chicken breast for $2.98 per lb. These will just need to be cut into bite size pieces.

Total Cost for Angel Chicken = $3.27 or $6.27 depending on the chicken you decide to buy

Broccoli makes a nice side dish. Ingles has Tanimura & Antle Fresh Broccoli on sale 2/$3. Dice them up into bite size pieces and place into a pot of boiling water until tender or microwave until tender.

Total:$6.27 or $9.27 (again, depending on your chicken price)

You may even find a little extra in your budget for dessert. How about strawberries ($2.50 per lb) and Reddi Whip ($2.00) for a light and sweet ending to your Mother's Day dinner?
