Provolone Wrapped Chicken

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 24, 2008

A very kid friendly meal…and more great recipes coming this weekend…Corn and Salsa Soup and then Mexican Lasagna on Sunday!


3 chicken breasts ($2.25)
2 T extra virgin olive oil ($.10)
4 slices provolone cheese ($.84)
Homemade rolls ($.48)
1 cup frozen peas ($.25)

1. Cut chicken breasts into strips. Drizzle EVOO over the top and add salt and pepper. Bake in baking dish at 350 for 25-35 minutes. Remove from oven. Carefully take one strip and wrap half a piece of provolone cheese around the chicken. Cheese will melt over warm chicken strips.
2. Warm homemade rolls…we are eating the leftovers from last night.
3. Cook peas. Serve it up!

Cost $3.92

Looks good. I will have to try this after my new oven arrives. Delivery tomorrow! I think I will plan menus where I use it everyday next week.

This slloks good. I’m thinking that wrapping a slice of bacon first, then chesses around it would be yummy, too, and not tht much more expensive :) And, you could throw it on the roll as a sandwich!


Now, I’m hungry :) Thanks for the headstart.

Another one hitting my menu. I like that you cooked it in the oven – takes less time for me!

Have you tried my homemade noodle recipe? It’s easy – not sure how you could do it gluten free but I’m sure it could be under $5 for Noodles, Homemade Bread and a veggie!!

I know this an old post, but I just ran across your site today. My mom always called Provolone “poor man’s bacon” because you can fry it up and it gets crunchy and tastes like bacon. So, i think putting bacon and then provolone the cheese seems a little redundant. :)
