Re: ~$5 Meal Ideas~
Chicken Packets - My hubby LOVES these! (They're in the oven right now)
2 cups cooked chicken (I just use 2 chicken breasts that I get in the big bag from Aldi's - whole bag costs $6... so 2 pieces is maybe $1.50?)
1/4 cup onion
3 ounces cream cheese softened - 8 oz is ~$1 so... this is less than 50cents
2 tablespoons milk
S+P to taste
2 containers of refrigerator crescent rolls (aldi's for ~75cents each)
Mix cooked chicken, chopped onion, cream cheese, milk and S+P together in bowl.
Open crescent rolls - they will be triangle shaped, but leave them with 2 triangles together and smoosh the perforation together so you have a total of 8 rectangles.
Spoon ~1/4 cup mixture onto each rectangle.
Close up packets by bringing all edges together.
May brush with melted butter and sprinkle with bread crumbs (I don't though).
Bake at 350degrees for ~20 minutes...
