I have done this chicken in many different versions (BBQ, Lemon Garlic, Italian Dressing)- all would be pretty cheap, but this is the most basic version, but just as tasty. There is nothing like coming home to a meal already done- so this is another slow cooker meal. You will notice I bought a 10 pound bag of potatoes and a 3 pound bag of onions. I use these ingredients all the time, and it was much more economical to buy the larger bags. Single potatoes were $1.00 a piece! Don't be surprised to see these ingredients come up again this week.
1 whole chicken ($3.20)
4 potatoes- sliced or wedged (10 lbs bag for 2.99)
2 onions (3 lb bag for 1.99)
Place potatoes and onions on the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the chicken on top. Salt and pepper generously. Put a few pats of butter in the slow cooker with the chicken and other ingredients. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
Serve with green beans (2 cans for $1.25)
Grand Total: $9.43
