I have an exciting frugal eats this I wanted to show Budget Savvy Diva readers how I take discounted meat and make three different yummy and frugal meals If you want the complete recipes feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here was the first step:
Took some lemons – from our lemon tree – lemon juice is a tenderizer plus it adds a bit a zip.
My first step was to tenderize the skinless boneless chicken thighs – there were 12 in lemon juice
My first dish was to make my own recipe of
brown sugar fried chicken sandwich topped with cheddar with a hint a thyme with a honey biscuit with a side of spicy rice with a mustard BBQ infused sauce - Long name I know
Next I used the same batter method on strips of chicken – to make nuggets. I then wanted to take a .39 cent blue box mac and cheese but make it upscale – so I took leftover shell pasta while it cooked I placed fresh rosemary in the cooking pot – so it would infused into the pasta Then I added the powdered cheese with left over brie topped with fresh cracked pepper. Dipping sauce was left over mustard BBQ. I toasted a honey biscuit for a little side starch - Here is how it looks
Now for my final meal I grilled chicken thighs and served them over penne pasta with garlic bread with a little cheese on top. Simple clean flavors worked really well

Remember when you are cooking try and balance flavors sweet and tangy or spicy and sweet.
