How To Streeetch Your Family Meals

So, I’ve been doing some research regarding family meals and how to save money while getting MORE out of your purchases. One staple that seems to go so quickly is proteins and meats, right?

So, I am taking on a challenge to feed my family of 6 on 1 whole chicken for 3 dinners.

Now, this will be interesting bcuz I’ll have you know that I have been a doubter!!! LOL

But I’m always up for a challenge and this one wouldn’t be any different than any other challenge I take on…

As long as I do my best, I know something good will come out of it šŸ˜‰

Okay, so here goes…

Here’s one whole chicken…uncut cuz it’s cheaper that way šŸ˜‰

Then, cut up the chicken and place everything into a ziplock bag and keep the breast to use for dinner #1.

So, here goes nothin’. I chopped up the chicken breast as small as possible. First, I cut in in half length-wise and then in strips and then in small chunks. I cooked it up in a bit of olive oil. Then I sauteed onions, red bellpeppers, carrots and any other veggies I had on hand. I also boiled a pot full of brown rice on the side.

The chicken and veggies simmered for awhile on low and I added some seasonings and a bit of Bragg’s Aminos and some hot sauce for some extra kick. Added a large salad and some bread and avocado for the family…(I passed on the bread, thank you very much!)

But overall, it turned out to be a great hit and everyone complimented the flavors so I would say they liked it enough!! I’m eager for the next 2 meals now and will be sharing that with you too!!

Would saving money and feeding the family right make your life easier? I think so!
