Bargain Meal of the Week – Meijer

Roasted Chicken & Potatoes in Rich Tomato Sauce
TOTAL = $4.13

I gotta tell you, this week’s recipe sounds awesome! Thanks Stacie at Kat’s Kitchen for helping us! You’ve got to hop on over there and check out her Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars – yum-o!!!

From Meijer:
8 chicken drumsticks (2 lbs) – (1 lb/$.99) – $1.98
3 medium potatoes, peeled, cut into quarters – $.80
Frozen Mixed Vegetables – (Meijer Brand $1) – $1.00
Rice – (Meijer Extra Long Grain $.69/16 oz) – $.35

From your Pantry:
1/2 cup vegetable or chicken stock
1 Tbsp tomato paste (Meijer has this on sale)
3 teaspoons dried rosemary
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 425°F. Place drumsticks and potatoes in a single layer in a large roasting pan. Combine stock and tomato paste in a small saucepan over a medium-low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until combined. Set aside to cool slightly.

Combine rosemary, paprika, salt and pepper in a bowl. Sprinkle over chicken and potatoes. Sprinkle garlic over chicken and potatoes. Pour stock mixture into base of roasting pan (do not pour over chicken). Drizzle oil over chicken and potatoes. Bake for 1 hour or until golden and cooked through.

Serve over rice with steamed vegetables on the side.

Note from Clair – If you bought chicken drumsticks at Ultra this week for $.38/LB that would cut this recipe by $1.20!!
