As a student, I try to stretch out the dollar to the max and have come up with a solid meal with just a few ingredients.
4 frozen chicken tenders, defrosted and cubed
1 cup frozen veggies (any combo)
1 box Rice a Roni (I used low sodium chicken flavor)
4 cups chicken broth or stock
1 can cream of chicken
any kind of poultry seasoning (I used one called roasted chicken)
hot sauce (I love Tapatio)
Boil 1 cup of chicken broth in large skillet. Throw in veggies (frozen is fine). Cook for 3 minutes. Then throw in cubed chicken. Sprinkle with seasoning and pepper. Reduce heat to Medium.
In a smaller pot, follow directions for rice but instead of water, use chicken broth. Simmer for 15 minutes and then pour rice into larger skiller with chicken and veggies.
Pour in cream of chicken and stir everything together. At this time, I added hot sauce. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes and then serve.
It's the easiest, cheapest meal and it's very flavorful! When you need to feed 2-3 people for under $10, this is the best option! Enjoy!
