While I try to cook cleaner, more nutritious meals, I also need to make sure they are frugal.
Tonight I decided to throw a stack of things together & see how it worked -thankfully it did!
I marinated 1 diced chicken breast in honey & mustard. I then cooked up a concoction of every veggie I could lay my hands on…
- Sugarsnap peas
- Bok choy
- Spring onions
I added the chicken which also in turn coated the veggies in a bit of marinade. I then cooked up some sliced potato with parsley.
We buy our veggies from either farmers markets or our local farmgate. Not only does this mean they are really fresh & last a long time, but they are well priced & we are supporting our local farmers :). All the different veggies + single chicken breast gave our family all the good stuff they needed, it tasted beautiful & fresh and was really economical.
I used to always cook 2 chicken breasts with every meal. Now I cook one, cut it into smaller pieces, bulk it out with veggies & you honestly don’t even notice the difference. Great for the grocery budget 🙂
