This recipe is great, I made this one night and had enough that we had 2 more meals. NOW that's what I call frugal living. 3 meals out of 1 and the cost winds up being less than 50 cent a serving! YES you did read that right. I mean, can you go out to eat for 50 cent? I think not.
Plus it was really good and full of nutrition.
Did you see the post I did, well a round up of butternut squash recipes? I'll have to add this one.
If you don't know how good the BNSquash is for you, let me remind you:
You could use leftover turkey, stuffing and rice in this dish instead of cooking chicken, if you have leftovers from Thanksgiving still or even AFTER Christmas to use up that turkey. Great use of leftovers, even if you buy a rotisserie chicken, as only a small amount is used.
2 butternut squash
2 chicken breast, de-boned, cooked and chopped
1/2 cup rice, cooked
1 box stuffing mix, chicken flavor
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 TBSP parsley flakes,optional
1 TBSP butter, cook with the rice
Mix your cooked rice and chicken in a bowl with your stuffing mix (fix according to package) and can of soup.
Stuff the squash and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Sprinkle with parsley and serve!
Since there is only 2 of us now, this made 2 separate dinners for us. AND there was TOO much stuffing/chicken to fill all four halves. So that was eaten on a third night.
3 meals in 1, how frugal can you get?
