Chicken 'n' Biscuits

This is a kid-friendly, quick, affordable dinner - on those nights when you don't know how you're going to get dinner on the table for everyone! The meal comes together in the amount of time it takes to bake the biscuits.

1 pkg. refrigerated biscuits ($.72 - ($.99 on sale - $.55/2 Q))
1 1/2 lb. chicken breast, boneless, skinless ($2.25)
1 tsp. granulated garlic
3 chicken boullion cubes ($.15)
2 C. water (free)
4 T. margarine ($.10)
4 heaping T. flour ($.20)
salt and pepper ($.05)

Bake biscuits according to package directions.

Meanwhile, cut chicken breast into biscuit-sized cutlets. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic. Spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray, cook chicken over medium high for 8-10 minutes, browning on each side, cook until juices run clear. Remove from pan when done.

While chicken is cooking, bring 2 C. water to a boil, add in chicken boullion.
In the pan you removed the chicken from, add margarine over medium high heat, once melted, whisk in flour. Once combine, gently whisk in chicken broth, cook over medium-low until thickened. Place chicken in the gravy. Serve with biscuits.

Yields = 6 servings (2 biscuits per person 1/6 of chicken and gravy mixture)
