The great thing about the recipes that you'll find here at Moneywise Moms is that they're all pretty much easy to make, quick cooking, and family friendly. I remember the days of being in the kitchen with kids attached to my legs and while they're older now and less likely to be attached to me physically while I'm cooking, I'd still rather spend quality time with than versus living in the kitchen!
If your family is like ours this recipe will make it into your meal plan rotation in no time. I discovered this particular recipe years ago in a book that's unfortunately out of print, called Better Homes and Gardens Big Book of Healthy Family Dinners. Worth the buy for sure if you manage to find one from a used bookseller!

Is this a frugal dinner recipe?
To keep this frugal, I buy my roasted red peppers at Trader Joe's (they're half the price than the grocery store), use potatoes when they're on sale, and chicken from my Cooking Ahead prep.
I do use a whole small can of olives, because my kids love them. It's also because I don't want a can of them hanging around half used. If you won't use them for other stuff just throw them all in, they're delicious!
I usually serve this with something green, like peas, and it's a very pretty meal that comes together quickly and easily. You could pair this one with any frozen, canned, or fresh steamed veggies. Whatever is on sale or whatever your family really enjoys will compliment the chicken peppers and potatoes easily.
