Using the Stockpile, Day 20: Mango Chicken







I had to work today, so I wanted to make something easy for dinner.  Since I have had canned mangos and canned coconut milk in my cupboard for a while now, I decided this is the best month to use them, since I am trying to clear out!

I took 1 can of coconut milk and 1 can of mangos along with 1 full boneless chicken breast (mine was frozen, approximately 1 lb), and let it cook in the slow cooker on low for 4 hours.  I added in brown rice about 1 hour before dinner and put it on high to let it cook.

Two more cans and 1 package of chicken = GONE!  It was pretty good.  I think next time I make this I will add in something with a little spice, maybe some curry powder!



Total spent on food outside of stockpile:
Today:  $0
This Month:  $37.77
Goal:  Spend under $100 for January, but under $50 would be awesome!  I think I'm going to be past the $50 limit, but we'll see if I can do this anyways.  Maybe $75. :)
