    This is a realy easy one.

    All you need is, chicken breasts- cut into peices

    Fav veges. I use onions, capcicum, and carrot


    BBQ sauce- or any other sauce is fine

    And some left over bread

    1. Fry chicken peices up

    2. Add onions until there soft

    3. Add carrots

    4. then add capcicum, mayonaise

    5. cut bread into small bite size peices, and cover with BBQ sauce in a bowl

    6. Add bread, and some more sauce if needed.

    7. Turn heat off when the bread starts crunching up.

    8. Serve with veges on the side

    You can add more veges, if you want to, but the reason i choose this recipe was that all the ingredients happen to be in my fridge.

    Note: Id stick to BBQ sauce because it gives it a BBQ flavour

    Quesadillas = tortillas and cheese. Brown the "sandwich" in the pan with some olive oil. If you have it, add hot sauce or jalapenos, salsa, sour cream, lettuce, onion, black olives, or even a roast chicken from the supermarket. You can use the other chicken for anything, add to a box/can of soup, pasta...anything.

    casseroles that make a big quantity go a long way..soups with veggies and beans are cheap...hamburger on sale is cheap and can make alot of meals in a wide variety...tuna and chicken also are low priced and cannot be added to things that are inexpensive and usually make a few meals....
