Frugal Chicken Recipes
The same old chicken recipes over and over again can get boring. I make sure my family gets a variety of chicken dishes every month. I have to also make sure that it fits into my grocery budget. I love cooking different dishes and my family never gets bored with chicken!
I felt bad when I first started buying cheaper cuts of chicken but you know what I found out? My family didn't notice the difference! They could only tell the difference when I left the pieces whole, like fried or baked chicken. That helped my meat budget a lot!
