The chickens from the deli at Wal-Mart, Brookshire's, or Super 1 run under $5.00. Take all the meat off the chicken while it is still warm. I find tearing it off is easier than cutting it off.
The chicken than can be used to make fajita, chicken salad, or plain chicken salad.
We make a dish that makes a lot. You can use steak or chicken. (your already cooked chicken works well)
If you use raw meat cut in small bite size bits.
Cook in Pam or a little oil. (We like to cook chopped onion with ours. Use what you like) When good and browned add a can of rotel tomatoes and a half can of water. Simmer to let the meat get the flavor. Next add minute rice (I like instant Brown Rice more fiber and better for you). You can add however much you want to make serving for 2 or 4. The more rice the father it stretches. Add the amount of water that the minute rice calls for. Add 3-4 tablespoons of chili powder, shake garlic powder in, and 1/2 teaspoon of oregano. Bring to boil, cover, and turn off heat and let the rice soak up the liquid. If you like you sprinkle cheese on top (adds more calories).
Taco meat that you make yourself by adding chili powder, garlic, oregano to browned ground beef, can be used for taco salad, tacos, and to put in bake potatoes.
You can make spaghetti noodles, add rinsed drained tuna, any variety of veggies you like and add either low fat salad dressing, your low fat mayo, or a vingerette dressing.
Good luck, let us know how the visit goes.
