Re: Please share your 1 all time hands down favorite thriftyish meal
I don't know if I love it because it's thrifty or because it is just so darn easy.
Preheat oven to 400. Place chicken of any kind (breast, thigh, whatever) and any amount in a casserole dish. Dump a jar of salsa on top of it and put it in the over. After about 15-20 minutes sprinkle with cheese and put back in oven until cheese has melted and chicken is fully cooked. Serve over rice.
Thriftiness depends on how much you pay for the chicken, how much cheese you use and if you got your salsa on sale with a coupon.
