This sounds like a good recipe, on my to cook list for sure. Capers, never seen them where I live. Don't have 3 tablespoons of capers? Use 2 green olives and 1 inch of dill pickle, mince those up, similar but not perfect.

Instructions
  1. Heat a deep nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and the chicken to the pan. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Brown chicken until lightly golden all over, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and return the skillet to the heat. Reduce heat to medium.
  2. Add another tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter, the garlic and shallots to the skillet. Cook the garlic and shallots 3 minutes. Add flour and cook 2 more minutes. Whisk in wine and reduce liquid 1 minute. Whisk lemon juice and broth into sauce. Stir in capers and parsley. When the liquid comes to a bubble, add remaining 1/2 tablespoon butter to the sauce to give it a little shine.
  3. Add chicken back to the pan and heat through, 1 to 2 minutes. Toss hot pasta with chicken and sauce and serve. Adjust salt and pepper, to your taste. Top with fresh snipped chives.
Recipe Notes

The chicken would cost about 50 Baht/600 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 37 cents per servings.

Instructions
  1. Cut the chicken into 1 inch pieces, set aside.
  2. If making your own condensed cream of soup (either chicken or mushroom) after each batch you make, pour that into the slow cooker pot then add the milk, onion, parsley, black pepper, and frozen vegetables. Mix, then add the chicken and mix for a few seconds
  3. Everything added and mixed. Cook on Low setting for 6 hours or High setting for 3 hours.
  4. Finished. Serve over mashed potatoes, boiled potatoes, egg noodles, rice, or just enjoy as a soup.
Recipe Notes

Chicken breast run about 30 baht per 500 grams. 112 baht for 2 cans of soup, you make yourself from a shortcut that reduces this to about 55 Baht. Everything else is minimal. Overall, the meal for 6 servings is about 70 cents per serving, if you make the soup yourself, the cost is 42 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Prep the chicken for marinating, place chicken on a cutting board and stab numerous times with a fork, this will allow the marinade to soak in.
  2. To marinate the chicken, pour salad dressing into a large, resealable plastic bag. Add chicken breasts, seal bag and shake to coat. Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight (the longer you marinate, the more flavor the chicken will absorb). I do this overnight.
  3. For a slow cooker, place the chicken in the slow cooker pot, pour the marinade over the top, cook on low for 6-7 hours, high for 3-4 hours. Serve over pasta with a salad or green vegetable.
Recipe Notes

6 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts last time we bought them, no more than 120 Baht. The bottle of Italian dressing, made in Thailand, 54 Baht.

So total of 174 Baht for this meal, for 6 servings, this is about 86 cents per serving.
