Here is my Bargain Meal of the Week featuring these deals from Safeway:
We have to feature chicken since $1.69 is such a great price for boneless, skinless chicken breasts. This recipe is a standby for us and is super easy to toss in the crock pot or you can easily adapt it for the grill.
BBQ Beer Chicken::
I place 2-4 chicken breast in the crockpot with a mixture of BBQ sauce (approximately 1 1/2 cups) and half a beer. This can cook on low for about 4 hours or high for about 2 hours.
Serve with grilled corn on the cob (or to make it more decadent serve with Bacon Wrapped Corn on the Cob).
4 Corn on the Cob @ .40= $1.60
Chicken Breast= $2.78
BBQ Sauce= $.50 (Kraft is priced at $2.25 this week, use $1/1 coupon from the blue toolbar to the right)
Beer= $.70 (1 can beer approx depending on type of beer purchased, I would use Coors or Budweiser)
Another idea would be a Monte Cristo sandwich using the great price on bread and Butcher’s Deli Ham-
White Bread .99 a loaf
Butcher’s Ham .99 (with Safeway coupon)
Primo Taglio Swiss Cheese $2.99/lb (with in ad coupon)
(Turkey is optional)
You can also serve with cranberry sauce or a raspberry jam.
