Food: Feasts Under $5 -Tarragon Chicken with Leeks

February 7, 2012

It’s been awhile, but I’ve discovered another contender for Feasts Under $5 in one of my new cookbooks, How To Eat Supper. This is easy, cheap, and surprisingly healthy- you don’t use any oil on the chicken, and while there is butter in the recipe, you could half the amount, or even eliminate it if you wanted to. The best part of this is the fresh tarragon flavor – unexpected and fresh, a nice wake up to winter food.The recipe is widely available online (and in the book) but here is the cost breakdown, if you were wondering:

4 Chicken Breasts: $12
1 Bunch Leeks: $3
32 oz Chicken Broth: $2.39
1 lemon: 1.00
1 package fresh tarragon: $2.50
Total: $20.39 or $5.09

(Butter, salt, and pepper are pantry staples and thus not included in the cost.)
