Mmm this looks really yummy... I went on random restaurant sites after this post to view skillet menu ideas, lol. I found this one at Applebee's site... 11.49 for one meal. I could make a table's worth of this for that price at home. Anyhow, here's the info.
"Cajun-seasoned chicken breast grilled and served on a sizzling skillet with blackened seasoned shrimp, garlic and thyme. Served with fried red potatoes and sautéed onions & mushrooms."
I could do a bag of chicken and small bag of frozen shrimp at $10 allowance... 5lb bag of red potatoes at $2 allowance and the onions, garlic and mushrooms @ $3 ... that's $15 and what that meal would come to with tax here I am sure. Then you gotta tip lol
