Frugal Recipe: Cheesy Collard and Cabbage Chicken Casserole
Cook together in a pan:
One cup shredded(.59 cents a pound) or chopped chicken
A spoonful of minced garlic(jar)
A few shakes of dried onion(spice bottle)
A little seasoned salt(I use Abodo)
A little sweetener such as honey, sugar, O.J., or maple syrup
One small can of diced tomatoes
A jar of mushrooms(drained)
One can of Glory Southern Style Country Cabbage(drained)
1/3 of a bag of frozen collard greens
One cup of shredded Save-A- Lot pizza blend cheese
One cup of homemade chicken stock and a bit of milk(or half a can cream of chicken soup - Caskey's is very inexpensive at Save-A- Lot)
Cook chicken, onion, and garlic first for about 5 minutes on medium heat, then add the remaining ingredients, cook for another 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Lightly blend pan ingredients with one small box of cooked elbow macaroni (12-16 ounces) into a medium sized casserole dish. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake uncovered for about 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees until top is browned.
This was very tasty, and we'll have this again.
