$10, 5 ingredients, 1 appetizer, 8 people - what to make?
Our book club is coming up and the challenge is to make something to share with 8 people for less than $10 with less than 5 ingredients. Suggestions?
I should add that I'm a fairly basic cook so nothing too complicated, please. Also, I have to be able to transport it about an hour to a picnic so I won't be able to serve it "hot out of the oven."
Boneless chicken breasts and/or thighs are usually on sale. Cube them, marinade the cubes, thread them on skewers and grill or broil. Depending on the marinade you use, you can have a complimentary dipping sauce.

Spiced or candied nuts.
Homemade hummus or white bean dip with pita chips.
