1 pound chicken ($1.77)
1 can cream of mushroom soup ($.75)
1 can cream of chicken soup ($.75)
1 small onion sliced or diced ($.20)
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables (I use country style) ($1)
1 can of Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits ($1) …these are often on sale and there are always coupons and “ecoupons” for these.
Follow same directions as below.
Cost $5.47 (based on my guess of how much the cream of soups cost??!!!)
I had to make a few modifications since we can’t eat cream of soups or biscuits. I included a cost breakdown of her recipe as well.
Here is how I made this “from scratch”…
1.5 lbs chicken breast ($2.65)
1 16 oz bag frozen mixed vegetables ($1)
Homemade GF White Sauce or Homemade White Sauce ($.50-$.75)
1/2 cup water
2 slices GF Cornbread ($.35) Leftover from Thanksgiving
2 Broccoli Heads ($.75)
1. Place chicken breast in crockpot. Pour frozen veggies over the chicken (no need to thaw). Pour 3-4 cups white sauce (or cream of soups) over the chicken and veggies. Add water to completely cover chicken. Cook on low for 8 hours.
2. About 1 hour before the crockpot is done cooking, add the cornbread, crumbled into pieces (or top with the biscuits).
3. Steam broccoli in steamer for 3-5 minutes or microwave for 3 minutes. Serve on the side with chicken and dumplings.
Cost $5.25 (hopefully there will be leftovers! I think this is my most expensive dinner yet!)
