So, your cupboards are all full because you are a couponing fiend. Your husband thinks you are crazy because you keep coming home with free stuff. Yet, you still have no clue how to turn what you have in your pantry into a great meal. Here is what I fed my family last night for $4.46. It was yummy!
Honey Dijon Garlic Chicken
1 lb chicken breast
20 cloves garlic, peeled
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup Fat Free Honey Dijon Kraft Salad Dressing (or use any of the varieties you have. Caesar would be good or you could add an Asian flair with the toasted sesame.)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Heat 1 T Olive Oil in a large skillet. Att the chicken and garlic and cookuntil browned on both sides. Stir in broth and dressing and simmer until chicken is cooked through (about 10 min). Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. (I know there is A LOT of garlic in this, but the cloves get very soft and sweet)
Drizzle 1 bunch asparagus with 1 T Olive Oil and toss with 2-3 cloves minced garlic. Spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet and roast in a 400 degree oven for 20 min.
Top fresh lettuce with croutons, craisins and freshly sliced green onions. Serve with your favorite dressing.
