Got a hungry crowd? These value meal ideas keep your budget and time under control while delivering hearty and delicious meals. Each meal should serve up to 4 people, all under $3 per person! Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients you will need.

1 lb. Market 32 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

1 box Prince Pasta

1 Jar Classico Alfredo Sauce

1 pack PICS Frozen Chopped Spinach

1 bag PICS Shredded Swiss 8oz

1 container Market 32 White Mushrooms

1 container Hormel Mashed Potatoes 

1 container Pillsbury Grands Biscuits

1 bag Birdseye Steamfresh Brussels Sprouts

1 bag Birdseye Steamfresh Mixed Vegetables

1 can PICS Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup

1 bag Full Circle Organic Baby Carrots

Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake

First up is a Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake, with a hack to get ahead on kid-favorite Muffin Tin Pot Pies What better way to create a meal your family will enjoy while also getting prepared for a different meal later in the week?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a sheet pan with PICS Vegetable Oil Spray, and place all but two of the chicken breasts on the sheet pan. Roast for about 30 minutes.  

While the chicken is roasting, cook 1 box of Prince Pasta, cook according to package directions. Drain when cooked, saving 1 cup of water from the pot. (Tip – pasta shells or spirals will soak up more sauce. Reserve another ½ cup of water for those varieties.)  

Open 1 package of PICS Frozen Chopped or Leaf Spinach. Add to the warm pasta, mixing in to assist with defrosting.  

When the chicken is cooked, (internal temperature 165 degrees) remove from the pan and divide the roasted breasts into two equal portions (2-3 breasts each). Cover and refrigerate the second portion of chicken for the pot pies. Cut the remaining chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Add the chicken pieces to the pasta and spinach in the pot, then the contents of the jar of Classico Alfredo Sauce, and the reserved pasta water. Heat on low and stir occasionally to combine until sauce is simmering, adding more water as needed to coat the pasta and chicken. Luscious! 

Sheet Pan Mushroom Swiss Chicken  

This simple one-pan meal will make everyone happy! You can’t forget the convenience of sheet pan meals. Having everything in one area and not having to clean up multiple dishes is a win-win.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  

Spray a large sheet pan with PICS Vegetable Oil, (or place Simply Done Aluminum Foil on the sheet pan before spraying oil to cut down on clean up time!  #Hack) coating the entire pan surface. Place chicken breasts on the pan at one end. Season with salt and pepper.  

Toss Brussels Sprouts and mushrooms with 1- 2 TB PICS Olive Oil, and add to the sheet pan, spreading out so all veggies have room to roast.  

Bake for 25 minutes, turning vegetables once to roast evenly, for about 25 minutes. Veggies may be done slightly ahead of the chicken – check the sprouts with a fork, they should be slightly browned and tender.  

Hormel Mashed Potatoes are up next – follow package directions to heat the potatoes up in the microwave. Keeping time in mind, get them set up in the microwave, ready to start.

Remove tray from oven. Turn oven up to broil. Remove vegetables from the tray with a spatula, placing them in a bowl for serving. Place shredded Swiss on each chicken breast and return to the lower rack of the oven. Set the microwave according to potato package instructions, which takes about 5 minutes. Broil until cheese is melted and slightly browned.  

Check the internal temperature of the chicken – it is done when the thermometer reads 165 degrees. Serve and savor! 

Muffin Tin Pot Pies* – Easy to assemble, bake and freeze for a quick meal on a busy day!  

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  

Spray 1 muffin tin with PICS Vegetable Oil.  

Follow directions and microwave 1 (10 Oz) bag of Birdseye Steamfresh Mixed Vegetables, or 1 (10 oz.) bag of PICS Steambag Frozen vegetables of your choice.  

Cut remaining roasted chicken breasts into bite-size pieces. Add cooked vegetables to the cut chicken breast. Add PICS soup to the chicken and vegetables and mix well.  

Open 1 Grands Biscuit containers. Separate biscuits and use the palm of your hand or the end of a clean jar to flatten to about 5-inch diameter. Place each biscuit into a muffin cup, leaving the edges open. Fill each biscuit cup with about 1/3rd (3 TB) of chicken and vegetables mixture. Crimp biscuit edges over the mixture – they will resemble small hand-pies.  

Place the sheet pan with the baby carrots on the top rack, and the muffin tins on the lower rack of the oven. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, until the tops are golden brown. Serve 2 mini pot pies with the side of roasted carrots, or cool and freeze for a busy day!

We are kicking off another month of value meals right to your inbox! We know you are knee-deep looking at recipes and ideas for your Big Game party food, so we’re sharing a couple of “pregame” ideas that will be quick and easy and keep your energy available for getting creative. This will keep your budget in good shape as well – these two winners serve 4 for $4!

Let’s take a closer look at this week’s meal items:

-1 lb Market 32 Hot or Sweet Italian Sausage

-4 Green Bell Peppers

-1 box PICS Instant White Rice, 14oz

-1 Yellow Onion

-1 jar Prego Pasta Sauce

-1 dozen PICS Grade A Jumbo Eggs

-1 bag PICS Burrito Tortilla, Flour, 10 inch

-1 can PICS Enchilada Sauce

-1 bag PICS Shredded Cheese of choice, 8oz

-1 can PICS Black Beans

First on the field is a fun twist on a traditional comfort food recipe – Sausage Stuffed Peppers! Make them sweet or hot, your call. You can also make them ahead and serve them up another day. You will need: 

-1 lb Market 32 Hot or Sweet Italian Sausage

-4 Green Bell Peppers

-1 box PICS Instant White Rice, 14oz

-1 Yellow Onion

Kickoff!

Prepare rice according to package directions. Hack – cook double and freeze what you don’t need for a quick whole grain side or an easy add to soup.

Dice onion. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Split 1 lb. of sausage and discard casing. Brown sausage in a large skillet, breaking it up into smaller pieces as it cooks. Add diced onion to the skillet as sausage begins to brown. When sausage is cooked, drain fat and set aside.

Wash and dry peppers. Cut the tops off and remove seeds and membranes. Hack – speed cooking time by microwaving the peppers on high for 3 – 4 minutes. It is like blanching and will reduce overall cooking time.

Combine sausage and rice in the skillet. Add ¾ jar of pasta sauce, and additional seasonings if you like, such as a tsp of Italian herbs, or ½ tsp of granulated garlic. Combine all ingredients.

Prep a casserole dish large enough to hold 4 peppers upright with a light spray of vegetable oil. Place pepper cups in the dish, and spoon filling in, packing it down and allowing it to mound on top. Top with a Tbsp. or two of the remaining pasta sauce and put the top back on the peppers.

Bake for 30 minutes, until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. Make it your own with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese or shredded mozzarella and a pinch of chopped parsley. Enjoy!

Another year has just begun, and you may already be feeling the weight of cooking multiple nights a week. Fear not…navigating meal time just got a whole lot easier! This week’s flyer has many sale items that can provide quick, easy, and cost effective meals over the course of the week.  We took the work of going through the ad and built three meals around our Value pack of Market 32 Boneless Chicken Breast. Let’s take a look at three meal options below, with all ingredients right in the flyer!

The three meal options below were created with the idea of being able to feed four people per meal. In this case, each meal would feed all four people for under $4 a person. For a quicker look at the items we chose, check them out below!

-Chicken (about 5lb package), quantity of 1

-Ben’s rice, quantity of 4

-Nature Sweet Cherubs, quantity of 2

-Dole Salad Blends (12 oz bag), quantity of 1

-Ken’s Salad Dressing, quantity of 1

-Market 32 Yellow Potatoes, 5lb bag, quantity of 1

-Market 32 Baby Carrots 1lb, quantity of 1

Option 1:

  • Market 32 Boneless Chicken
  • Ben’s Original Ready Rice
  • Cherubs or Cherry Tomatoes

Our Market 32 Chicken Breast can provide more than just one meal. Try cooking one or two large chicken breasts in a pan with the tomatoes, and they will melt right in your mouth! This will also provide added flavor to your chicken. Cook three to four packets of Ben’s Original Ready Rice for 90 seconds each, and your meal is complete!

Option 2:

  • Market 32 Boneless Chicken
  • Dole Salad Blends
  • Ken’s Salad Dressing

Salads can be a delicious, filling meal on their own, and Dole Salad Blends have a wide variety of options. Many Dole Blends are loaded with veggies for added nutrients. Even better, you will still have the salad dressing for another meal later on in the week, or for a marinade on the chicken.

Option 3:

  • Market 32 Boneless Chicken
  • Market 32 Yellow Potatoes
  • Market 32 Baby Carrots

This meal can be made in a variety of ways. Try cooking one to two chicken breasts either on the grill, in the oven, or in the air fryer. Additionally, two or three potatoes can be baked or mashed with glazed or steamed carrots.
