Frugal Meals

This is a meal that my mother-in-law makes. I think it is a frugal dish because I always (okay, almost always) have these ingredients on hand.
The Farm Fresh 03/16 weekly ad has Perdue Boneless Skinless Chicken breasts on sale for $1.99lb. I typically purchase the bone-in, skin-on thighs because it is significantly cheaper and it only takes a few minutes to remove the skin. There is something to be said for convenience though!
