Gluten and Dairy Free Options
Use gluten free soy sauce and chicken stock. Check the peanut butter and chili paste for gluten and dairy. For dairy free; replace the milk with coconut milk.
Save money by buying pantry basics such as soy sauce and rice (paid link) in bulk. Rice can be stored in recycled glass jars and will last for up to two years if kept in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.
Buy chicken in bulk when it goes on special then divide into 1 pound portions when you get home. Freeze for up to six months. Don’t be afraid of thighs. They may be a little more fiddly to cut up but they are more moist than the breast meat and are often cheaper.
Consider growing your own vegetables then freezing any excess. This recipe can be meat free by replacing the chicken with mushrooms or your favourite alternative.
