10 pound bag of chicken leg quarters .79 a pound ($7.90) This will make at least 2 meals if not more.

Meal #1

Huli Huli Chicken
Dottie (hokiesmom) from Cooking for your family on

5 lbs chicken pieces
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons sherry
1 piece ginger root, crushed
1 clove garlic, crushed

Arrange chicken, skin side up, on rack of broiler pan. Broil 6 to 8 inches from unit in electric oven for 10 minutes on each side. Combine remaining ingredients; baste chicken and continue broiling for 10 more minutes on each side, basting frequently with sauce. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Serve with rice and roasted veggies. (squash and zuchinni are on sale for $1.29/lb so get 1.5 pounds- $2.09)

half a bag of chicken $3.95
rice- .50
veggies- $2.09

Entire meal for $6.54

Meal #2
Roast the rest of the bag of leg quarters in the oven and debone them when cooked. ($3.95)

Use the meat to make Chicken Divan. This recipe looks so good! I can't wait to make it but I have a bit of a stomach bug right now so no food for me for a bit. :(

Serve with your choice of side. I think I would probably go with some mashed potatoes and corn. But that's just me. :) I love mashed potaoes and corn with everything. LOL

Come back next week to see what meals I find for Food Lion!
God bless,
