This recipe isn’t new or inventive, but I love it just the same… Italian Chicken. It costs roughly 5 dollars to feed 4. My soldier not only gave it a 9 out of 10, but ate more than half of it (enough for 2 adults).
1c Your Favorite Italian Dressing (1.50) (I used Newman’s Own… Of course I shop at a commissary where organic products are inexpensive)
1# boneless skinless chicken breasts (3.13)
1/2 a red pepper (.99)
1/2 cup green beans (fresh are cheaper than canned) (.65)
1 1/2 cups of rice (.50)
GRAND TOTAL of $6.77
Cut your chicken to about 1 inch cubes. I absolutely despise cutting chicken, so trust me, this dish is worth it.
pour dressing into skillet and allow it to warm up over medium heat. While it is warming up cut your red pepper into strips.
Add chicken, red pepper, and green beans to the dressing. When chicken is cooked thoroughly, and the red peppers are limp it is ready to serve. Also, the dressing will cook down during this time. Actually, it is really just absorbed by the ingredients…
While your chicken mixture is cooking start your rice. I use whole grain brown rice so it can take 30 min to cook.
You will need to be near the stove as this dish is cooking so as to stir both the rice and the chicken.
It is DELICIOUS!!!!
