Price per serving for three: $3.37Being frugal is great. To make this dinner, I have all ingredients except for the croissant dough and brie. I will be using the left over chicken from yesterday's chicken stock, adding to that one small can of diced tomatoes, and 1 cup of fresh frozen okra. All I have to buy is some Italian turkey sausage, the dough and brie. All of those items can be bought very reasonably at ALDi.
Take the stock and left over chicken from your refrigerator and start to simmer on the stove. Open and add one small can of diced tomatoes (you can also use fresh). I also will be adding rice which I have in the pantry. I like to cook the rice separately and add on the end. This way the rice stays firm. After adding the tomatoes, you can add the turkey sausage dropped in as small formed balls, and then the okra including a pinch of salt and some additional dried herb seasoning. Let this cook covered on the stove for 25 min. on medium flame/heat. In a another small pan, fill with water and a bit of salt to boil the rice.
Meanwhile, turn on the oven to F375. Once the heat is up, form the croissant dough around the brie and place on a sheet of foil in the oven. Bake until brown.
This is a hearty meal for the French Creole Cajun in your family. Ahh eee!
