4 Moms Share Frugal Meals

Posted By Smockity Frocks On March 8, 2012 @ 10:14 am In 4 Moms | 5 Comments


I was recently asked to teach a community class on frugal meals at our Christian Service Center.

I put together a simple dinner of chicken and rice casserole, with green bean casserole, and carrot and celery sticks. Since my husband loves to, he did the grocery shopping, and I totaled all the costs which came to a total of $7.20 for:

  • 9×13 chicken and rice casserole
  • green bean casserole
  • plate of carrot and celery sticks

Depending on the age of the eaters, this will serve 6-10 people. This serves our family of 10 well since we have some itty-bitties who don’t eat much.

Here is the how I made the chicken and rice casserole:

Chicken and Rice Casserole Recipe

  • 1 – 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 3 cups instant rice (uncooked)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • dash of pepper

1. Boil chicken breasts in pot with chopped onions, celery, and carrots until juices run clear.

2. Dice breast meat and set aside.

3. In 9×13 dish, add soup and 3 cups of water. Stir until well mixed.

4. Add 3 cups uncooked rice, chicken, salt and pepper.

5. Stir well and cover tightly with foil.

6. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
