Bargain Meal of the Week 4/23/09

It's time for another week of Bargain Meals! Erin over at $5 Dinners (a great read!) is hosting a gathering of bloggers all over the internet, creating frugal meals straight from the sales circulars of their favorite stores. Check it out for even more inspiration. I contribute every Thursday for the current sales at Publix, which run from Wednesday to the following Tuesday. Keep in mind that you do not need to purchase two of a product to get the buy one get one price. Publix marks down their products to half price for the BOGO deals.

Today's meal takes advantage of the following sales:
Split Chicken Breasts, 1.69 per lb.
Skippy Peanut Butter, 1.25 (BOGO price)
Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers, 50% off (around .50 to .80 cents)

Total price should be between $5 and $6 dollars, even better if you have coupons for Skippy and Green Giant.

Thai-Style Grilled Peanut Chicken

recipe from


1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons curry powder
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 pounds cut up chicken


Blend peanut butter with honey and soy sauce until smooth. Stir in curry powder and garlic; mix well. Place chicken in a large plastic bag or a bowl. Pour peanut butter mixture over chicken and mix well. Close bag or cover bowl and chill at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours. Remove chicken from marinade and broil or grill over medium heat 4 to 6-inches from heat. Turn chicken and brush with marinade occasionally while cooking. (Do not brush with any more marinade less than 10 minutes before chicken is done.) Cook until chicken is no longer pink in thickest part (cut to test), 15 to 30 minutes depending on size and piece.

Serve with vegetables.

Peanut and chicken go so well together. Great recipe idea.
