Here’s one of our favorite quick marinades to make to add flavor to cheap pieces of chicken. We buy the chicken when it’s on sale (sometimes we get breasts, other times leg quarters for as little as .48 a pound. If you talk to some of the local restaurants in your area they are sometimes willing to buy an extra case of chicken (a LOT cheaper than you can buy it in the store) and resell it to you for a $5 profit to them.
The discount is still pretty huge, about .80 – $1 cheaper per Pound.
Maple-Glazed Chicken ($1.43 )
1/4 cup maple syrup (.05)
4 tsp. lemon juice (.05)
1 Tbsp. butter or margarine (.05)
salt and pepper (to taste)
4 pieces chicken ($1.28 purchased on sale at $1.34/.lb)
Preheat oven to 450. Mix maple syrup, lemon juice and butter together in small saucepan. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Spray a baking dish
and place chicken in it. Salt and pepper the chicken. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and pour on glaze. Bake for 15 minutes more or until juices run clear.

Yum! And I just got chicken leg quarters on sale for fifty-five cents a pounds so it will be even cheaper to make:) Love this website so far.

We finally tried this one last night and we really enjoyed it. The total cost for us was around $4 for the entire family & that’s with using Liss’ techniques listed in her ebook for getting deals on chicken. Btw, thanks so much for that- my neighbor and I really appreciated the splitting tip!

This sounds delicious! Any recommendations on what to make with it?
