75 Fabulously Frugal Chicken Recipes

Just like Steve Martin’s character in the movie Father of the Bride sometimes we need to go with the “chipper chicken”. Of all the meats out there chicken is still one of the most economical and it really is versatile too!

But sometimes you need a bit of recipe inspiration to get out of your chicken rut. My 9 year old son lamented the other night “not barbecue chicken again!”. Yep, baking up some chicken with a little BBQ sauce is my go-to chicken recipe when I am fresh out of ideas. But there are so many great ways to prepare chicken and I didn’t have to look very far either for some inspiration either.
