Once a Month Meals: Crockpot Cranberry Chicken Price Breakdown

SAMSUNG
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.

Once a Month Meals- 27 Frozen Burritos

SAMSUNG

As I mentioned in my first article about OAMM (Five Tips for the Beginner), the frozen burritos I prepared were one of our favorite recipes from Take One. I doubled the recipe below and added a few of our favorite ingredients. I made some of the burritos just with refried beans, cheese and olives for a certain family member who has sensitive taste buds (okay, it’s me). This recipe takes awhile so be sure to set aside time (or enlist the help of your family) to put together the burritos once you’ve cooked the mixture.
