This meal is so easy that it’s really not a recipe, but an idea. This idea of the easiest chicken pot pies was really my daughter’s idea. She is the photographer in the family and these pictures turned out beautiful! Can you tell that we love what we do? Actually, my daughter thought of this meal, cooked it and then photographed it. And, then I have the pleasure of putting all of website stuff together for a blog post.
The options of fillings for these pot pies are endless. I’ll name a few to give you some ideas, but they sure aren’t limited to these few.
The Easiest Chicken Pot Pies Filling Options:
- vegetable beef soup
- steak & potato soup
- broccoli & cheese soup
- chicken & dumpling soup
- minestrone soup
- chicken tortilla soup
- beef stew
- meatballs & marinara
- ham & cheese
- pepperonis & cheese
- sausage, egg & cheese
- bacon, egg & cheese
CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP BUDGET MEAL!!!
For 4 servings this meal was $5.24 and this was with not buying off brand items. At this price, each serving was $1.31 and that is amazing! So, if I had bought off brands then the price would have been even cheaper! And, feeding a family of 4 for less than $5 is AMAZING!
“What’s For Dinner?” – Cheap Dinner Ideas!
- Easy & Cheap Chicken Alfredo. *$1 per serving is for 6 servings, but for small children there would be more servings, so the price would even be cheaper. *Plus, this is with can chicken and cooking your own chicken breasts would also lower the price too.
- Pinto Beans – I was raised eating a lot of pinto beans, fried potatoes and cornbread. While growing up my mom made this meal EVERY week, lol. I never thought too much about it, because I loved it. But, later after I had my own family of four kids I understood, because it was a VERY inexpensive meal to make and feed a family. Plus, it was a nutritious meal, beans which are protein, potatoes a vegetable and then cornbread, so in this meal we have our protein, vegetable and a grain. As a kid growing up I just knew I had a delicious meal! LOL. I do have a recipe of this meal called Beans, Taters & Cornbread. When I wrote this recipe up for the website, this meal was $0.24 per serving and this was 2 years ago in 2020. The price might be a little higher now, but not by much, because this is a VERY CHEAP MEAL. AND, I usually cook pinto beans every week, first with fried potatoes and then the leftovers are made into burritos!
- Spaghetti and garlic bread. Spaghetti is another meal that is cheap. I like spaghetti noodles and sauce, but my kids like meatballs, LOL, so I add meat balls to my sauce. Sometimes, I’ll buy french bread and a garlic butter spread to make garlic bread. However, I have been know to take white or light bread, spread with butter, sprinkle garlic powder on it and shredded cheese, then bake in the oven. So, this can be a cheap dinner meal too. Again, leftovers can be meal prepped and frozen for Gerald’s lunch, LOL.
- Dorito Casserole – another EASY, EASY meal is a Dorito Chicken Casserole, plus it’s fairly cheap. You take a bag of tortilla or dorito chips, can of chicken, can of mushroom soup, can of enchilada soup and shredded cheese. I love this meal! Because, I can assemble this casserole 20 minutes before Gerald is to arrive home from work and the meal is done and ready to eat by the time he is home.
- Chicken Mac & Cheese Casserole – this is another cheap and easy casserole! It’s close to this recipe, except for the alfredo sauce, add a can of rotel, mushroom soup and a package of cream cheese.
