Chili Chicken ‘N’ Rice
Tender chicken breasts on top of hearty chili and rice make for a filling and frugal meal-in-one that's only 85¢ a serving. "Choose mild or hot chili to suit your family's taste," suggests Kathy Duke of Anchorage, Alaska.

- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
