Chicken Recipes

“Winner winner chicken dinner!”

Chicken really is the winner in many kitchens as a main staple.  Not only is it relatively inexpensive, but it’s a high quality protein that is simple to stretch in meals, is adaptable in so many different kinds of recipes, and is very easy to cook whether on the stove, oven, slow cooker, or grill!

Take a look at some delicious Chicken Recipes…

We’ve actually got 238 chicken recipes (wowza!) on $5 Dinners.  See, I told you it’s an easy protein to make LOTS of different meals with!


And, don’t forget to check out the following Cooking Tutorials for Chicken:

Mama Francesca’s Latest Grated Cheese, Terzetto ~ Must Try!

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 16, 2014


Pin It!

Y’all, the latest and greatest grated cheese from Mama Francesca is here…the Terzetto.

Say that a few times…




I just love the way that sounds and rolls off the tongue. Makes me wish I knew Italian.

I digress…I’m here to let you know that the Terzetto variety of Mama Francesca’s gourmet grated cheese will be available in Walmart stores nationwide, starting April 21st. That’s Monday, y’all!

I know I’m really excited to get a bottle of this in our freezer, as I adore the flavor combinations in the Terzetto. The asiago, parmesan and romano cheese combo is like the trifecta of Italian cheeses. Cheese trifecta y’all. Perfection.

So, repeat to yourself, Terzetto. Terzetto, terzetto. And pretend you’re enjoying this new cheese atop some pasta or sizzling roasted potatoes, while sitting on the patio of an Italian cafe. In Italy.

Or dusted on top of some sweet potato gnocchi. I’m almost drooling now.

NEW Parm Asiago Romano

Keep a sharp eye out for the Terzetto cheeses in Walmart, and then get ready to gourmet-ify your favorite budget friendly dinners!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Mama Francesca. Opinions and dreams of being in an Italian cafe are my own. :)
