The four cheese calzone from Aldi isn’t half bad, in case you’ve been wondering. I try not to bring processed foods into my home but it’s fun to have an occasional treat. For $1.99 and thirty minutes in the oven it’s a pretty good deal.
Looking for a quick and easy meal tonight? I’m always on the lookout for ways to stretch a buck or to cut corners in making a meal. One of my favorite ingredients is rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. In fact, my favorite Kroger often marks down their chickens to about $3 and I sometimes have coupons that bring the price down to around $2. It’s great to buy these cheap chickens to shred and freeze for a later meal.
I also really like the Philly Cooking Cream that’s used here. It can be a bit pricey but there are normally coupons available so I try to keep it on hand.
This recipe is a great example of how handy it is to have shredded chicken on hand. It goes together super quick and you have plenty of time to toss a nice salad while it cooks.

By the way, I’m not really endorsing the product so much as telling you that it’s a quick fix for weeknight meals and they do have some tasty recipes.
