Chicken and Biscuits, $7.10

Dinner last night consisted of roasted chicken, whole wheat biscuits, potatoes and fruit. It was quite tasty!

Served 2 adults, 1 teen (17), 2 - 9 yos, 1- 7 yo and 1- 5 yo plus leftover chicken for stock.

1 whole fryer chicken, $3.00 (purchased on a buy one, get one)
Roasted in the oven, drizzled with olive oil and seasonings.

7 potatoes, pricked and baked. $0.30

Peaches- $2.00

Butter & Cheese for potatoes & biscuits- $0.75

Whole Wheat Biscuits- (made with whole wheat flour, 13.3 cents per cup) $1.05

Biscuit recipe (adapted from The Nourishing Gourmet)
Cut 6 TBS real unsalted butter ($0.36) into 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour ($0.40). Butter should be small pea sized. Add 1 cup milk ($0.13) + 1 Tbs apple cider vinegar ($0.06). Mix well. Allow to sit covered on the counter overnight (you can skip the soaking step if needed, but its a great idea!). Prior to cooking, sprinkle 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp kosher salt, and 1/2 tsp baking soda (leavening = $0.10) over the the dough, fold in half, turn, fold in half again, repeat for a dozen folds or so to make sure all the rising agents are well incorporated.

Roll out to about 3/4 inch thickness, cut, place on baking sheet and bake at 375 for 12-14 minutes.
