I am taking action to save you money and time to feed your entire family without draining your wallet.

All-natural chicken drumsticks and thighs are on sale this week at Sprouts Famers Market for 99-cents per pound. You can also get ten ears of fresh, sweet corn for $2.

I found a delicious recipe on for savory slow-cooker jerk chicken.

Pair the chicken and corn with yellow rice and vegetable sand your family can eat for days for under 20 dollars.

Here are the ingredients you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cloves
  • 1 tablespoon rum (optional)
  • 1/2 tablespoon all spice
  • 1/2 tablespoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon (smoked) paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup malt vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 quartered pieces of chicken
  • 1/3 cup chicken stock
