Simple Aldi Recipes: Rosemary Chicken and Roasted Red Potatoes - Cost of Meal $3.31

Aldi Recipes: Rosemary Chicken & Roasted Red Potatoes
Making meals with Aldi groceries can turn any meal into a very frugal meal, and here at The Aldi Spot I will be sharing simple Aldi recipes that you can easily make with products from Aldi. Today's simple Aldi recipe is Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Red Potatoes.

One of my oldest son's favorite meals is Rosemary Chicken, and with Aldi ingredients Rosemary Chicken can be turned into a very cheap meal.

The recipe is actually from a McCormick Recipe Inspirations that I received to review last spring, but while the Recipe Inspirations are very convenient, they sure are not cheap. At a retail price of $1.99 for the spice blend package, I can get chicken enough for the meal for less the cost of the Recipe Inspiration.

Rosemary Chicken and Red Potatoes Ingredients:

2 tsp Paprika
1 1/2 tsp Rosemary Leaves (dried or fresh)
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
Chicken thighs bone in, no skin 1 - 2 lbs
Red potatoes 1 - 2 lbs

  1. Mix all spices and salt in large bowl, add chicken and potatoes (can be done separate as well). Toss to coat. Add chicken and potatoes in a large non-stick sprayed baking pan (or use two separate pans).
  2. Roast in preheated oven at 425 degrees F. for about 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through Turn the potatoes a few times. 

Aldi Recipe Cost:
5 lb Red Potatoes $2.89 - used 11/2 lb $0.87
Chicken Things @ $1.29/lb - 1 1/2 lb = $1.94
Olive oil, spices, garlic and herbs from garden and pantry (Spices $1.09 each at Aldi)
Salad $0.50

Total cost for meal $3.31
