Greek Chicken

This is a great meal that is full of flavor.  You can serve it with rice, but I prefer angel hair pasta.  I don't care for olives, but they would go great in this sauce if you have a taste for them.   Green peppers can be kinda slimy when you freeze them and reheat them, so I buy frozen chopped green peppers and they hold up a little better.  I love feta cheese and I like to top mine liberally.  My husband prefers mozzarella, so he gets his own version. 


4 lbs chicken, cooked and cubed             3.86
1 1/2 cups chopped green pepper          1.50
1 bunch green onions, sliced                      .60
4 cans Italian diced tomatoes                  2.52
1 14.5 oz can tomato sauce                        .52
1 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp light brown sugar               
pepper to taste
2 boxes angel hair pasta                                2.00
8 oz feta cheese                                            3.56


Pour tomatoes and sauce into large saucepan on medium heat.  Add onions, brown sugar, chicken and pepper.  Let simmer 5 min so flavors can combine.  Turn off heat and let cool.  Stir in green peppers.
Divide into three 4 cup containers and freeze.  When ready to eat thaw in fridge overnight.  Heat sauce on medium heat until warmed through.  Cook half a box of angel hair pasta according to box directions.  Toss with sauce and serve with feta.  I was able to make three meals for $4.85 each.  Here is what it looks like with the pasta and topped with cheese. 
This is awesome!  I hope you try it.  See if you can beat my price.  =)

Take care,
