Day Three and so far we have featured Missy's Fried Chicken Tacos and Katrina's Poppy Seed Chicken, today is my turn for my first dish! My recipe is: Roasted Chicken Breast with Pancetta Leek and Thyme. I got this recipe from Jamie Oliver(not personally from his web-site ;0))!! LOVE HIS RECIPES!!

I am excited to be doing a product review for Zaycon foods.We picked up our 40 lbs of chicken on Saturday! Yes you read that right, they sell their products in LARGE quantities ;0) The chicken was divided into four 10 lb. bags so that made it super easy for sharing! I am keeping 10lbs to freeze, 10lbs to use this week and gave 10lbs These are boneless, skinless HUGE breast pieces of FRESH chicken. The chicken is 100% natural with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients. Comes directly from the processor and has never been frozen!


Warning: On my recipes I really am not into accurate measuring, I just swig, whirl and pour and taste and eye ball.  This recipe is super easy to clean up from!!! I LOVE THAT, (or really mark loves that as whoever cooks the other cleans and I tend to be a messy cook) ;0)

Ingredients:
Chicken Breast ($1.49/lb)
Leeks (organic $2.99
Pancetta $.99 manager's special (normally $2.99)
White Whine (did not use much so hard to figure in cost)
Olive Oil (did not use much)
butter
Thyme (used dried kind) no idea how much I paid not much

Sides: I made

Preheat the oven to 400°F Prepare a pan with Aluminum foil.

Put 1 chicken breast, in a bowl. Trim and wash a large leek, remove the outer leaves, then slice it into ¼ inch pieces. Add these to the bowl with the leaves of a few sprigs of fresh thyme(or dried like I did), add a happy amount of olive oil, small bit of butter, a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and a small pour of white wine and toss together.

Put the leeks and from the bowl into the tray, then wrap the chicken breast in 4 to 5 slices of pancetta. This will not only flavor the chicken but also protect it while it cooks. Try and bend the sides of the tray in towards the chicken so the leeks don't burn during cooking. Drizzle with olive oil, place a couple of whole thyme sprigs on top and cook in the middle of the oven for 30 to 40 minutes depending on your oven!

For sides I popped open a can of Del Monte $.49 canned veggies and made some Uncle Ben's Brocolli and Rice which I paid maybe $.25 for that.
Total cost of meal including the chicken was: $6.21

Coming soon: Katrina's Chicken Fried Rice, Missy's Soy Chicken, Mark's Mexican Fajjitas, Shana's Asian Sweet and Sour Stir Fry, Katrina's Buttermilk Fried Chicken and much much more...so stay tuned!!

If you are new to couponing you may want to read Couponing 101. Please note there is a new Kroger Coupon Policy here. Kroger in Memphis and surrounding areas doubles 7 days a week up to $.60!

There is a limit of 5 of the same coupon per transaction at most Kroger stores here in the Mid-South now. 
NEW POLICY IN AFFECT
Internet coupons(they call them Print at home) are limited at using only 2 coupons per Manufacturer per day per customer. Meaning you can only use 2 Proctor and Gamble coupons and then 2 Kelloggs coupons etc.

Make sure to download all the eCoupons to your Kroger card. It's easy and can save you lots of money. Just visit Cellfire, Shortcuts, SoftCoin & Upromise.

Ecoupon Up-DATE:
Kroger does not allow the stacking of ecoupon and paper coupons. Remember e-coupons do not double! I suggest not loading coupons under $.60. These coupons only come off one item.

Why do you list more than 1 coupon on a product, I can only use one Manufacturer's coupon per item right?
Yes only 1 Manufacturers coupon per item, however I want you to know of all the coupons out there so you could get more than one item using different coupons.

Be sure and use the coupon database to look up other products you need but don't see in the sale ad and see if there is a coupon for it.
There are a TON of Kroger Digital Coupons, so be sure and check those out.

Get FREE Product Coupons for Items You Buy @ Kroger

One of the most common questions I get is how can I receive FREE and High Value coupons on the foods I buy the most at Kroger? If you do not currently receive (probably once a month) coupons from Kroger in your mailbox or via e-mail with coupons JUST FOR YOU then you need to go to the Kroger web-site here.

First make sure you have set-up an account and then click on "account settings" and then choose "contact information" and put your mailing address, I personally don't put my phone number but that is just me ;0)





These free product and high value coupons are also sent to people's e-mail account, which is what happened to me this week, I received an e-mail with a unique link to get a Free lb of mini peeled carrots and a box of Kellogg's Special K plus about 10 other coupons. Sounds great right? Well the only issue I have is all the other coupons most are $.60 etc so now they won't double ;0(

Please note these "Kroger coupons" that you receive in the mail although they have a Kroger logo on them most of them are Manufacturer Coupon you will notice the small box by the expiration date box it says MANUFACTURER COUPON. THESE COUPONS CANNOT BE STACKED! Many readers ask me if I "cut" the logo off the bottom and use these coupons at other stores. NO I DO NOT DEFACE COUPONS, I would suggest NOT CUTTING THE LOGO OFF and I personally like using them at Kroger so that they see I as a customer appreciate these coupons. However Walmart will take these coupons according to their policy.

The only "TRUE" Kroger Store coupons are for Kroger products (like for Kroger butter, carrots etc.)
