Healthy Entrees On A Budget

Healthy Entrees On A Budget

Ok guys, I splurged at the grocery this week…I bought chicken breast instead of chicken thighs. Crazy, right?

Well, not too crazy. More lazy if anything since chicken breast needs less prep work. Today I have a round up for three of my latest affordable dinner entrees, which are broken down by total cost and serving. They might not all fit on the dollar menu, but they are pretty close!

All of the ingredients are usually generic brands. Several seasonings I buy are also 5th Season, which are really cheap for how much you get.
