Bargain Meal of the Week 4/16/10


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 week 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.

Honey Baked Chicken


Ingredients:
  • 1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place chicken pieces in a shallow baking pan, skin side up. Combine the melted butter or margarine, honey, mustard, salt and curry powder and pour the mixture over the chicken. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/4 hours (75 minutes), basting every 15 minutes with pan drippings, until the chicken is nicely browned and tender and the juices run clear.

Serve with rice and steamed carrots.
