Anne over at Cooking with Anne posted about the KFC $10 challenge a few days ago. $10 really seems like a LOT to me when it comes to a simple fried chicken dinner, so I thought I would run the numbers on a similar (but healthier w/bigger proportions) dinner for my family. Most nights I'm feeding 2 adults & 4 kids.
2 lbs boneless chicken breast made into pan fried strips $4
1.5 lbs roasted red potatoes $1.50
1 dozen made from scratch biscuits $1.15
box of mac & cheese (made w/whole milk & real butter) $1.50
can of green beans .69
My total $8.84 and I am providing a wholesome, satisfying meal for a family of 6
