If you read this post with the recipe for Boiled Plantains then you know that during the recent Grand Opening of the Lidl (lee-tle) grocery store in Middletown, they had some great bargains. In addition to the fresh fruits and veggies, they also had a good deal on their Jasmine Rice, Cooking Sauces and fresh chicken, so in using these three ingredients, I was able to create a tasty meal for 3 for less than 2 bucks each!
2 – Packages thinly sliced Chicken Breasts or Cutlets
1 – Cup Jasmine Rice -prepared according to package directions
1/2 – Jar Cooking Sauce – I used Tikka Marsala Sauce
Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place chicken breasts/cutlets in a glass baking dish pan coated with cooking spray
Pour 1/2 jar of Cooking Sauce covering each piece
Rinse and cook Jasmine Rice according to directions
Cover baking dish, and bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken juices run clear
Serve over rice and enjoy!

That is sure looking good to me! Oh and that new store will be opening in my city of Raleigh soon but sad thing is I am staying up north for now in RI lol. I will get to it when I get back. Going to pin it.
Looks so good and the prices!! We haven’t tried Tikka Masala yet, but this looks tasty! Thank you for sharing! Have a great weekend!
Thank you Erika, it is definitely going to be a regular on the menu.
Looks good! I need to try cooking with curry more. We recently at some curry veggies and we loved the taste.
Curry and Turmeric are spices that are actually good for you.
You know what? I have never cooked with curry, even though I love the spices. My girls think curry is too spicy, but I think I’m going to get some anyway after reading this post. I love the meal idea; you can’t beat a less than $2.00 meal!!!
It really isn’t too spicy but I understand the girls because it is an acquired taste and very healthy too. You know me, I am cheap and always on the lookout for a bargain!
This looks like something I could eat here. I’ve been doing a lot of chicken breast recipes this week myself so I better hold off on trying it before I make my family chick of chicken breasts lol.
I keep saying that we eat so much chicken that soon we will be sprouting feathers!
