Instructions
  1. For the chicken, 1. You can use a whole chicken or 2 kilos (4 lbs) of pieces, think bone in skin on quarters separated, and breasts. 2. You can boil it or pressure cook it, pressure cooked will be used by me. Either way, once the chicken is cooked, leave it in the pot with the broth to cool to give you juicy chicken. Shortcuts are in the Recipe Notes section.
  2. Once the chicken is cooked, remove the skin, bones, cartilage, and shred, place evenly in the bottom of a casserole dish.
  3. Preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F).
  4. In a large bowl, add the soups, sour cream, and onion powder as desired. Whisk to combine. Here I have the chicken ready, the soups (homemade) mixed, and the stuffing (homemade) ready to assemble.
  5. Prepare the stuffing according to the directions on the package.
  6. Pour the soup mixture evenly over the chicken.
  7. Spread the stuffing evenly over the top of the casserole. Bake for 45 minutes.
  8. Let rest for 5 minutes,
  9. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

The whole chicken will cost about 150 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about 78 cents per serving.

Shortcuts: Pressure Cooked Whole Chicken, Quick Chicken BrothCondensed Cream of Chicken Soup, Condensed Cream of Celery Soup, Sour Cream, Stove Top Stuffing.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C (400 F). If you do not have an oven safe pan, get out a large baking dish. Season chicken on all sides with salt and pepper as desired.
  2. In a large oven safe pan (or if no oven safe pan, use a large non stick pan) heat the olive oil. When hot, add chicken, work in batches if needed, Cook about 8 minutes per side for nice golden brown skin and nearly cooked through. Remove chicken from the pan but leave the fat in the pan. If using a baking dish, place the chicken in the dish.
  3. To the pan, add the onion and cook until soft then add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute to make the garlic nice and fragrant. Whisk in the paprika and flour, mix well and cook until the flour is browned, about 1 minute then stir in the tomatoes and broth, stirring until well mixed.
  4. If using an oven safe pan, add the chicken back to the pan and place in the oven and bake until the chicken is cooked through, 15-20 minutes, cut a thick piece to check for doneness.
  5. If using a baking dish, pour the mixture over the chicken in the dish then bake for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, cut a big piece in half to verify doneness.
  6. Remove the chicken from the pan or dish, stir in the sour cream, add chicken back and spoon sauce over the chicken.
  7. Serve over cooked egg noodles or mashed potatoes. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

One kilo of quarters will cost about 53 Baht. For 8 servings, this is about 28 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. If using pork loin, use the 14 cups of water, if using chicken, use 8 cups of water and 6 cups of chicken broth.
  2. Add the water (or water and broth if using chicken) to a large pot and bring to a boil. While waiting for the water to boil, dice the pork or chicken into bite size pieces.
  3. Once the water is boiling, add the pork or chicken and salt, then reduce to a simmer and partially cover and cook the pork for 30 minutes, or the chicken for 10 minutes. Skim off any foam that forms at the top.
  4. When the meat is done cooking, add the potatoes and bay leaves and bring up to a low boil for about 15 minutes or until you can easily pierce a potato piece with a fork.
  5. While the potatoes are cooking, heat a non stick pan with the oil and when hot, add the onion and cook that until golden brown then add that to the soup pot.
  6. After adding the onion, lightly beat the eggs, and while stirring the soup pot, slowly pour in the eggs.
  7. When the potatoes are fork tender, add the sorrel and dill and bring the soup pot to boil and hold for 3-5 minutes to wilt the sorrel and make them good and soft.
  8. Ladle into bowls, top with a spoon of sour cream or mayo, enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Pork loin is about 55 Baht/500 grams, chicken breasts would be about 30 Baht/500 grams. For 8 servings this is about 22 cents per serving using pork, and about 19 cents per serving using chicken.

Shortcut: Sour Cream.

Variants: 1. Use spinach in place of sorrel. 2. To make this vegetarian, simply not use the meat and use vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth.

I grew up on Hamburger Helper, and many times the hamburger (hamburger meat for all my friends in the deep south of the US) was substituted with ground venison. My early years in the Navy, my wife and I made Hamburger Helper to stretch those dollars between paydays. This is basically hamburger, pasta (maybe potatoes), spices, milk, and water, and a load of preservatives. So I did a bit of research on the internet and found a site that replicated all of the dishes available. The basic instruction is brown the ground beef and drain, then add in the ingredients for each version you wish then simmer. Enjoy. Links to the shortcut are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Shortcuts: Italian Seasoning, Sour Cream.

Notes: 1. If using true Thai chili powder, cut the amount back by 1/3 to 1/2 as it is quite hotter than chili powder in the US. 2. The salt and sugar are OPTIONAL! I have made several of these and you can certainly leave out the sugar. Salt is used in the boxed version of this much the way McDonald's uses salt, sugar is used in the box version much the way cereals in the US are made, to get you to not like the meal, but love the meal, and buy more. When I make these, I do not add sugar, but I do add salt, a touch less than what is stated.

I have not done this yet, but will soon. When I was growing up, we had a wood stove we cooked on, and it had an oven, I used to make the baked potatoes but inserted a large nail (very clean) into the potato, theory is that when the nail heats up it cooks the inside of the potato faster, seemed to work. This is on my to make list and soon. This is based on one potato per serving as a side.
