Talani's working late today, and we have a Personnel meeting tonight. And company tomorrow. And vacation in 4 days. It's a busy day/evening, but then, they all are. So I popped an easy chicken dinner in the oven.
Mom and I put together about 20 (or what was it, Mom? I don't really remember. It was AT LEAST 12, but maybe 20 is over-estimating a bit.) chicken meals in ziploc bags. We made about 4 or 5 different recipes including Sticky Chicky, Maple-Chili, BBQ Jelly. Tonight's is maple-chili chicken. I'll make noodles and veggies to go alongside.
I wish I remember how much it cost to make the meals. I can say this: We bought the chicken when it was just $1.79 a pound for boneless-skinless breast meat at Sam's. We probably have 1 1/2 pounds of chicken in this meal. The maple syrup that went in the recipe was easily the most expensive ingredient, but we didn't use a whole lot. I would say that this dinner, with pasta and veggies included, cost no more than $6.00.
I was going to wait to post this until I had a picture, but I'm afraid of running out of time. We have to leave in an hour, and I have about a million things to do. Besides, when I checked it just a minute ago, it had that mostly-raw look to it that does not look appetizing at all. A picture would probably not be a benefit right now. :) The thing is, you're supposed to thaw the chicken in the fridge during the day. I popped mine in the oven straight out of the freezer, so it's going to take longer than it otherwise should to cook.
