Those who read my blog regularly know I don’t cook (much). Trust me, this is not a fancy dish, but it is quick, easy , tasty and incredibly cheap that I had to share it.
Back in college when money was really tight, my room mate (who happened to be from Malaysia) would often make this for us.
In a pan she would put a little oil, onions (or garlic) and when that has cooked for a moment, she then added chicken cut into tiny pieces (one thigh for the two of us) and cooked until the meat is done, then added a bag of frozen veggies like beans, peas or peas and carrots and let those cook for a few minutes, then added one can of pork and beans or baked beans. Poured over rice or bread (good for the last pieces of bread or heals – because it doesn’t have to taste fresh) it is very good. Add hot peppers if you wish.
Below, in the one I made yesterday, I omitted the meat and added some leftover corn. Makes two servings at about 80 cents per serving (without the meat). Very filling.
