I cook and choose my meals based basically on one thing: what’s on sale at Dutchman’s, Hwy 2 Discount and Aldi–my local go-to grocery stores. A couple weeks ago, Dutchman’s had chicken quarters for $.39/lb. in 14 lb bags and so I purchased 2 bags. Needless to say, we’ve been eating lots of chicken.
Something I make fairly often, is chicken and rice. One reason why I like it, is that I can make extra rice and chicken to use later in different recipes when I need a quick meal. I also like it because it’s fairly simple to put together. It takes me less than 30 minutes to put it together and then there’s nothing else to do after it’s baked but to eat it and wash the pan! I love that I can make it in my dutch oven because then it only makes one dirty pan, and all the flavors get mixed together. In addition, it pairs really well with flat bread.
