I am happy to participate in the 5 dollar dinners Bargain Meal of the Week.
Crunchy Chicken Nugget Tacos
12 Frozen breaded fully cooked chicken breast nuggets (Redi Serve in the deli section) $1.49 (this would be great meal if you have leftover chicken nuggets from a previous meal)
1/4 cup creamy Caesar dressing $.25
4 flour tortillas (8 to 10 inches in diameter) $.64
2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce $.50
1 medium tomato, cut into 8 slices $.35
1/2 cup chow mein noodles $.25
|Bake nuggets as directed on package.|
|Meanwhile, spread 1 tablespoon dressing over each tortilla; sprinkle each evenly with 1/2 cup lettuce. Arrange 2 tomato slices and 3 nuggets down center of each tortilla; sprinkle nuggets with 2 tablespoons chow mein noodles.|
|Fold sides of tortillas over filling, slightly overlapping.|
Add additional ingredients if you prefer.
Total $3.48. This leaves room in your budget to add a watermelon slice for everyone or a side salad. This is a great lunch.
