Once a Month Meals: Crockpot Cranberry Chicken Price Breakdown

In my first post about OAMM (Five Tips for Beginners) I mentioned that some recipes are worth your time and others aren’t. Depending on how much you are spending on ingredients, a recipe may not be worth making for your family. In a previous post is a list of all the recipes we tried during Take One with a link to the instructions and a link to their price breakdowns, but below we will breakdown the price for one of our favorites: Crockpot Cranberry Chicken!

Now, the prices I’m listing beside each ingredient is for the DOUBLED amount so that in the end I can calculate the correct price for each serving. If I had to purchase a new ingredient, I calculated the entire price for that ingredient into the recipe breakdown because I was spending that money specifically for these burritos. So, if you have any of these ingredients on hand already then your burritos will be even cheaper!


  • whole canned cranberry sauce $3
  • chicken breasts $11 (I got the amount per pound based on the package and calculated the price used here)
  • Lipton dry onion soup mix $1.34 (two packets in one box)
  • French Dressing $1.48
  • Garlic $0.56

Total Spent= $17.38


Price per Serving= $2.17!

Worth it!
