Last night for dinner, I was trying to figure out what to make with three chicken breast. As I had four people to cook for. I decided I was going to cut them up in to smaller strips. That way there would be enough for everyone to eat. Plus, others if they showed up.
It worked. My three chicken breast multiplied in to many chicken strips. Enough that my teen son told me I had made to many chicken strips after he made it home for practice. I told him my boyfriend still had to eat yet. If anything was left over. I would send them to work for his lunch the next day. Plus, I would eat them for lunch.
I couldn't made to much. As there was none left over for me to have them for lunch. Ha, ha. That told me they turned out great.
One thing I have tried to teach my children is how to stretch a meal while living on a budget. Or how to make it go further. Cutting bigger pieces in to smaller portions or sizes can make a meal go further. To where you can feed more. Or have more meals out of one.
A meal I can make out of left over chicken strips is by cubing them up and turning them in to a Chicken Parmesan Casserole.
Do you live on a budget and wonder how to stretch your meals?
