Cheap, Easy Dinner

This cheap, easy dinner came from the Philadelphia Cooking Creme's recipe book I got for hosting a party. It's called Chicken Primavera with Pasta and here's the run down:

1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces $1.79
2 C frozen stir-fry vegetables $1
1 Tub (10oz) Philadelphia Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Creme $1.50 (if you use a coupon)
2 C cooked fettuccine $0.50 (estimating that's about 1/2 the box)

Total estimated cost for the dinner: $4.79

To make it cook and stir the chicken in a large nonstick skillet on medium heat for 5-6 minutes. Add vegetables; cook 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Add cooking creme, cook and stir 3 minutes. Stir in pasta. The recipe says it serves 4.

Our family thought the flavor was great, but the consistency of the creme is a little too think. I added some liquid (you could use milk or water) to water it down some, but it still seemed to be a little too thick. So, maybe I should've added even more...will do next time.

The great part is that it was a cheap and easy dinner though!
