For the Chicken & Broth
Remaining Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. To make the broth, add the chicken, onion, carrot, and celery to a large pot with the 7 cups of water. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, cook for about 20-30 minutes. Remove the pot from the burner and let it cool to room temp on its own, this will give good tender and juicy chicken.
  2. Once cooled, remove the chicken to a cutting board.
  3. Pour the liquid in the pot through a strainer, discard contents of the strainer, return the broth to the same pot. Now you have fresh homemade broth, wasn't that simple and easy?
  4. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Butter a 9x13 baking dish and set that aside.
  5. Bring the broth to a boil and add the pasta and cook until it is just tender. Remove the pot from the burner and let sit for 5 minutes.
  6. While the pasta is sitting (it is soaking up flavor), go ahead and cut the chicken into bite size pieces, set aside.
  7. In a large mixing bowl, add the two soups, garlic and onion powders, and half the cheese. Mix together. Now you are ready to put this together.
  8. Drain the pasta. Place half the pasta in the baking dish and spread out to an even layer.
  9. Layer half the chicken on top.
  10. Spread half the soup mixture on the top.
  11. Repeat the layers then sprinkle the remaining cheese on the top. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  12. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes, serve with a salad for a nice meal.
Recipe Notes

Three good sized chicken breasts might, just might, cost 65 Baht. Without running the numbers, this is a Low Cost meal for sure.

Instructions
  1. For the chicken, economical way is to use quarters, separated, about 6 to 8 cover with about 2 inches of water (any extra chicken after this, freeze and use in another recipe). Boil them up in large pot. Optional, to make a really good broth and juicy chicken, add Trinity (an onion, celery, and a carrot, all roughly chopped). Allow to cool to room temp, remove skin and bones (good dinner for your dog) and roughly chop the chicken. Stain the broth, measure out 2 cups for this recipe, put the rest in a jar and cover and place in your fridge for the next recipe.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200 C. Add the butte to a 9x13 baking dish and put in the oven while it is heating, remove the dish when the butter is melted, see, you just saved yourself a small sauce pan to wash.
  3. Remove dish from the oven and place the chopped chicken in the dish. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, salt, and baking powder, pour this over the chicken in the dish but do not stir or mix in, think of this as a chicken cobbler.
  4. Same mixing bowl, mix together the soup and chicken broth you made, pour this over the casserole, but once again, do not stir or mix in.
  5. Bake uncovered for 35 to 45 minutes, done will be indicated by a nicely browned top and bubbling on the edges.
  6. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes, serve, and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

I will state go with 1 kilo of chicken, cost for that would be about 70 Baht. Go a heavy handed with the chicken for 90 Baht, no one will complain. For 6 servings, this is about 45 cents per serving.

Low cost. With some planning, plan on a chicken dish that uses boiled shredded chicken, then you can make the stock for this by simply adding trinity when boiling the chicken, and use several tablespoons of the chopped chicken to make the soup with a shortcut.

  1. In a bowl, mix together the soup and stock, dice the onion, and cut the butter into pats.
  2. Place the chicken in the slow cooker, top with the onion, top that with the pats of butter, and finally pour the soup mixture over everything. Cover and cook on Low setting for 5-7 hours.
  3. About 45 minutes to an hour from serving, open the can of biscuits, separate each one, and cut each into quarters, place these on top of the chicken and spoon a bit of the liquid over each biscuit piece. DO NOT be alarmed if it looks really soupy, just add the biscuit pieces.
  4. Turn the slow cooker to High setting, cover, and cook for about 45 minutes to an hour longer. Check the center biscuits to make sure they are cooked through.
  5. Serve.
Recipe Notes

The chicken will cost about 75 Baht/kilo. Canned biscuits I cannot price as I have never seen them here. If making the biscuit dough from scratch, this is a low cost item then.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. For the chicken go with 750 grams to 1 kilo, quarters, breasts, what ever you like, boil or bake to cook, let cool enough to handle and debone if needed, remove skin if needed, and chop to get the cups needed.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter.
  3. Cook onion and bell pepper in hot oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in chicken and next 7 ingredients, remove from heat.
  4. Tear tortillas into 1 inch pieces,layer 1/3 of tortilla pieces in bottom of the baking dish, top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture, then top with 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat these same layers 2 more times.
  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until just beginning to brown on the top.
  6. Serve with a green salad for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

Going with 1 kilo of quarters, 75 Baht/kilo and the cheese would be about 180 Baht for a 250 gram block, shredded. I cannot price the corn tortillas yet so I will update this when I locate those. For 8 servings, this is about 94 cents per serving, however, the tortillas, unless you make them yourself, will put this at fair value at least.

Variant: Substitute the condensed cream of chicken soup for 1 cup of sour cream.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Grease a 7x11 inch baking dish with butter.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the beef 5-7 minutes. Drain off excess fat, add onion, garlic, and chili powder. Continue to cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add the beans to the cooked meat mixture. Combine the tomatoes with the soup in a small bowl, mixing completely.
  3. Place about 3/4 of the crushed corn chips into the bottom of the casserole dish. Spoon on half the beef mixture, then half the soup mixture. Then add half of the shredded cheese. Repeat the layers, ending with shredded cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the top of the dish with the remaining crushed corn chips. Bake 30-35 minutes until bubbling and top is lightly browned. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes, serve.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht for the beef and about 180 Baht for the cheese, think a 250 gram block. For 8 servings, this is about $1.21 per serving.

Variant: Use Chorizo instead of ground beef.

Recipe Notes

For the chicken, use any parts you like, bake or boiled is fine. If you boil, reserve the broth for use in another recipe. Maybe 40 to 50 Baht worth of chicken in this recipe. For 4 servings, this is about 37 cents per serving.

Variant: Double the recipe and use a 9x13 baking dish.
