Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! 7 Frugal Favorites Made with Chicken Thighs.

Everyone needs a few frugal favorites! For busy days, and to help keep the budget in shape...

Since we all make dinner nightly, Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! 7 Frugal Favorites Made with Chicken Thighs was put together just for you! I think you will find one or two new favorites here. 

Chicken Dinner number 1, Curry Maple Dijon Chicken Thighs. We have become fans of curry, but I must admit, our curry use is still on the light side! If you are a long-time curry lover, feel free to double the curry measure. This dinner goes perfect with rice and a side of broccoli. 

Chicken Dinner number 2, Three Ingredient Pineapple Thai Chicken. This delightful dish came from a very frugal moment! Originally made with crushed pineapple left from making a carrot cake. We loved it so much that the next time I made it I only had pineapple rings in the pantry. It is delicious either way, but the rings make it pretty enough for company...For any special occasions serve this dish with Cilantro Brown Rice and Red Potato, simply wonderful together. 

Chicken Dinner number 3, Sweet Lime and Curry Chicken Thighs. Another light curry dish, this time paired with lime juice and a touch of sugar. Serve with baked potatoes and buttered carrots for a deliciously easy dinner.

Chicken Dinner number 4, Chicken Baked with Peaches Thyme and Dijon. The three flavors of peaches, thyme, and Dijon go perfectly with chicken. The juices from the baked chicken are perfect over fluffy rice. Buttered spinach goes especially well with this chicken main dish. 


Chicken Dinner number 5, Chicken and Onions with Rosemary Toasted Crumbs and Parmesan Cheese. So easy all you need to do is add some potatoes to the oven while you bake the chicken and onions! 

Chicken Dinner number 6, Grapefruit and Rosemary Grilled Chicken. Buttered corn (on the cob or off!) and asparagus go well with this easy grilled meal. 

Chicken Dinner number 7, Chicken and Vegetables Skillet Meal. This tasty meal is all you need for dinner, maybe some whole grain bread and butter on the side. It doesn't get much easier than this one.
