Buying baked chicken in the deli department seems being lazy and cheap at times. Anticipating the hot plastic bag that it comes in, can be dreadful. In my head, I’m wondering how long have this chicken been sitting in that glass display. I tell myself, its fresh; It doesn’t look so fat and bulgy. In the meat department, I saw a whole defrosted chicken that looked like Barry Bonds on steroids.
Never the less, I decided to balance it out with some fresh, baked sweet potato’s. There one of the cheapest and healthiest super foods at the store. I enjoy the sweet natural taste, of the sticky honey texture. I bake them in the oven for 30 minutes on 350 degrees. To add more sweetest, I like to add some ginger and cinnamon powder, with a touch of salt. I cut them up, like little tater tots to speed up the cooking. After 10 minutes, I add the chicken to heat it up and balance it out with the potato’s.
I have to say; after eating this meal, I actually enjoyed my lunch adventure for the price. In total, it came out to be a $2.75 meal. You cant beat that, when your on a budget. It was a healthy meal, that is if your not a vegan or vegetarian.
