Cheap Food Tricks

 Occasionally I like to buy ingredients that I can use to make something that I can eat for day, be it a large pot of chili or some tasty sandwiches. One of the things I make this way is Chicken Parmesan. How long it will last depends on the size of the bag of chicken patties, and how many you eat at one sitting.

Oh, I guess you need a microwave oven, although I suppose you could use a regular oven. I usually use two chicken patties. I put two patties on a microwavable plate and microwave them for one minute. Then I flip them over. I spoon some sauce over each patty.  (I use marinara sauce but any Italian-style sauce will do. Even spaghetti sauce. Use however much you want.) Then I sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the sauce. I put it back in the microwave for another minute and, voila, it's done.

Another thing I like to do with these chicken patties is make a simple chicken sandwich. I cook one or two patties in the microwave. This usually means one minute on one side, flip it/them over, and another minute on the second side. Put the patty on a regular hamburger bun with your choice of accoutrements (added things) and enjoy. I usually just add mayonnaise and a thin slice of red onion.

Sorry I don't have pix of the finished dish. You don't really need one, do you? 😁
