This recipe comes from my daughter in law, Brittany. Hi! [waving wildly] It is more expensive than many of my meals, but the kids love it, so I have added it to the rotation about once a month.
Ingredients and cost:
1.5 # chicken cubed $3.00 (I just bought breasts and cubed them myself)
1 tsp salt .10 (it’s sea salt, your salt is probably cheaper)
15 oz can diced tomatoes with juice .59
.5 cup water nominal cost
3 cloves garlic .33
Boxed chicken flavored stuffing mix .89
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese $1.75
1 Tbs Italian seasoning .30 (I don’t keep this in the house, so used 1 tsp of each: basil, oregano, rosemary)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9 x 13″ glass baking dish with oil. Toss the chicken with the salt. Place the chicken in a layer in the bottom of the baking dish.
Stir together the tomatoes, water, chopped garlic and stuffing mix and let soften.
Sprinkle the cheese on top of the chicken, then sprinkle the Italian seasoning on top of that.
Spread the stuffing mixture on top.
Bake for 30 minutes.
I served this with some steamed broccoli.
This was enough for dinner for the four of us and enough leftovers for two lunches.
