Something simple to teach

melpy | Jan 25, 2012 04:41 AM

I am teaching a friend to cook for himself to save money. His goal is 35 dollars a week or so. He literally didn't know how to make scrambled eggs or brown hamburger meat. One friend taught him the eggs and I taught tacos ( with a seasoning packet because that's all he is comfortable with so far). Tomorrow he has requested we do something with chicken. I want to make it as simple as possible and budget friendly. He is also an incredibly picky eater. I was thinking perhaps oven baked chicken pieces and rice but I am open to suggestions. With my meat CSA I barely do anything besides a whole roast chicken anymore. Thanks for any ideas you can give me. I asked him for what chicken he likes but he didn't know.
