Chicken Parmesan is an Italian entree that's guaranteed to please your entire family. With only three main ingredients -- chicken breasts, marinara sauce and shredded Parmesan cheese -- the meal can feed everyone at your table for less than the cost of a single entrée at a typical restaurant. You can even slap each cheesy breast between a couple slices of bread for tasty sandwiches that are as delicious as they are affordable.
Of course, there are countless other inexpensive dining options for families on a budget. With a little bit of creativity (or Internet research), you'll be amazed with the amount of delicious dishes you can make on the cheap.
