Cooking on a budget is never easy, especially when the pantry is nearly bare and the only protiens you have to work with are chicken leg quarters and ground beef day after day. Tonight I was trying to decide what to do with the chicken (had roasted it, used it in spaghetti sauce, made chicken noodle soup, chicken and rice..) just wanted to do something different. This is what I came up with and WOW, It was fantastic , full flavored, and REALLY Low fat! I hope you enjoy it as much as I and my Husband did.
