It's a chicken kind of weekend Tadpoles - especially when you can get an amazing deal on 7 humongous chicken breasts and you have a husband who grills.
This is our 4 day menu [4 dinners/1 lunch] made with the chicken.
Friday night - Dinner for two - a little bit of romance as the littlest was at a sleepover
3 teriyaki marinated and grilled chicken breasts
2 baked potatoes
We saved 1 1/2 of those breasts to make Saturday night's dinner for all three of us
teriyaki chicken salad w/ lettuce & tomato on sub rolls
watermelon [so, so good]
Sunday's lunch was a repeat of last night's dinner - told you those breast are huge - and the chicken salad is scrumptious.
6 chicken fajitas w/peppers and onions divided between the three of us [2 breasts]
refried beans & cheese
5 grilled chicken kabobs with peppers and onions - 1 for Mom and 2 each for Dad & Wallene [2 breasts]
The only thing I like better than being able to eat my husband's grilled masterpieces is doing it healthy and on the cheap.
