Get Cooking! 2 Meals for $14

Slow-Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
28 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
2 green peppers, chopped
1 onion, minced
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
Place chicken in crockpot, top with all remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours.

The cacciatore could be served over spaghetti noodles but we prefer it as is for the first meal; served with a nice crisp salad and some homemade bread. The leftovers can be used to make chicken spaghetti- just shred the chicken in the sauce and reheat then pour over cooked noodles.
In our house this is a two dish meal (until the kids get a bit bigger and start eating more!). In order to make it stretch a bit more the 2nd meal, I have added about a ½ cup (or more if needed) of pizza sauce and sliced mushrooms. Add homemade bread (or store bought fresh baked French bread) and a salad (using first nite’s leftovers of bread and salad for the 2nd meal) and by my calculations you can feed a family of 4 these two meals for approximately $14.00 (depending on prices for salad and bread).
With prices creeping up and up and up this is a very good thing.
