Spinach & Chicken (total spent 30p)
- 5 – 6 cubes of frozen spinach 30p – (1 pack of 15 cubes costs £1)
- Leftover roast chicken – A thigh or a leg (a single ready cooked thigh cost 70p at Sainsbury’s rotisserie).
- Black pepper
- Garlic granules
- Mix herbs
- A pinch of stock cube
- 1 tea spoon butter
- Chilli flakes
- Leftover roast potato – Or jacket potato
Put 5-6 cubes of spinach in a bowl and leave out of the freezer overnight.
In the morning, squeeze out the excess of water from the spinach and season the raw spinach with black pepper from the grinder, dry garlic, chilli flakes and salt.
Now use half of the butter and mix it up in the spinach before pouring it in the Tupperware and topping it with the chicken and the potato that you would have cut in smaller pieces.
Spread the leftover butter on the chicken before placing the lid on the lunch box.
When you get to work, place the lunch box in the fridge and at lunch time, lift the lid a little bit to let out steam. Place the box in the microwave for 7-8 minutes.
Stir the spinach from bottom to top to spread the juices that no doubt would have cumulated at the bottom of the lunch box.
Plate and enjoy.
All the unpriced can be found in the house and the spinach had to be bought specially. So, the total spent is 30p.
