Weekly Dillons Bargain Meal, 2/25

Bargain Meal of the Week

Bargain meal options abound at Dillons this week! Ground beef is $1.99 per pound, which is great, but I’m more excited about the other proteins on sale (I don’t purchase beef at the store).  I’ll probably head straight for the chicken.  Split breasts are Buy 1 Get 1 Free, which should make them $1.60 or less per pound.

Here’s one of my favorite oh, so easy and flavorful chicken breast dishes.

Chipped Beef Chicken Casserole

  • 4 split chicken breasts  $1.99/pound
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup (I make my own now!)
  • 1 cup sour cream and chives (can substitute 1 tsp. parsley for the chives) $.50
  • about 7 slices dried (chipped) beef, diced (found in the deli by the pepperoni)

Place chicken breasts in bottom of greased casserole dish.  Combine soup, sour cream and chives, and diced chipped beef.  Spread over chicken.  Bake at 325 degrees for 1 to 1 1/4 hours.

Pair the chicken dish with some frozen peas or broccoli ($1.00) or fresh steamed asparagus ($1.77/pound) for a super easy, no fuss meal.

Don’t miss out on these deals:

Red bell peppers and avocados are also on sale for $1.00 each. That absolutely shouts out fajitas and guacamole!  (especially since cheese and sour cream are on sale, too!)

A 10 lb. bag of potatoes is only $2.99.  Since sour cream is $1.00 per pint and cheese is $1.88 for 8 ounces, now would be a great time to make up a few cheesy potato casseroles for the freezer!

If you go to the trouble of making potato casserole, why not make some barbecue meatballs while you’re at it, using some of that $1.99 ground beef?

  1. Are you talking about the bone-in chicken breasts? If so, I saw this post on a Frugal Friday a while back and LOVE it:

    As a recovering vegetarian (now married to a cow farmer), I’ve always been a bit squeamish about chicken. But I have no qualms about using these chicken breasts because I’ve cut off anything questionable when taking them apart. As an aside, I’d highly recommend flash freezing them separately before putting in a bag. Last week I finally just dumped the whole chicken-sickle in the crockpot in frustration.

    If you weren’t talking about bone in breasts, um, never mind! :>)

  2. Wow! You have some great things going on in your grocery store this week!! Awesome:-)

  3. Ooooh! This sounds yummy! :D
