Price per serving for two: $2.49You will need to buy a package of chicken thighs with bone in and skin on. I got a gorgeous package of six for $3.54. To that you should have on hand or purchase, a small can 15oz. of crushed tomatoes (.89) and one onion (.49).
Take from your pantry: olive oil, coconut oil, and Parmesan cheese. Before, getting out your skillet, you will want to boil your chicken thighs in a stock pot with some salt and chicken bouillon. Why? because, you want to be frugal. This will not only give you a great stock to use for the rest of the week but also a soup as a starter for this meal and the thighs will be partially cooked to make your cacciatore go 'cook' quicker.
Once you have your stock finished, take your skillet and melt in 3 tbs of coconut oil and the same of olive oil on med heat. Then toss in chopped onion and even garlic if you like. Get that browning before you lay in your chicken thighs skin side down. Turn up the heat to high and brown those thighs. Turning down the heat, add your crushed tomatoes and dried herb seasonings, plus garlic powder. Cover and let simmer for 20-25 min.
That's all you have to do to be called the best Mama ever!
