What's for Dinner? Chicken Packets
This is what we had for dinner last night.
This one of my favorite easy, cheap, all-in-one meals. I didn't make it look very pretty, but they are so good.
You can make it in a variety of ways. I like to use chicken and potatoes.
Take a sheet of tin foil spray a little oil on it. Place chicken and diced potatoes on it. I normally add a couple strips of green pepper and onions. Then put about three tablespoons of butter, garlic salt, and pepper (or whatever herbs you want). Pull up opposite sides and foil and fold, then do that with the other sides to keep in all the steam. I put the oven on 375, place chicken packet on a cookie sheet and bake for about 45 minutes. I top them with a little sour cream and chives.
It turns out great every time.
The cost was about $2.28 for a family of 4 (chicken was on sale for $1.79lb and potatoes were $.98 for 5 lbs and I used about 1/2 the bag.
