I do have a hint for extending meals. Day 1 Make a large pot of vegetable chicken stew
2 free range or organic chicken breasts cut bite sized Lots of potatoes cut bite sized sweet potato onion carrots broccoli corn and any other veges that you like (I keep a small packet of frozen vege mix in the freezer for the really emergency meals) vege stock cubes
METHOD Cook off onions and onions add other veges with water and stock cubes simmer till all tender (1hr) enjoy as a stew
leftovers make a great curry base. Add curry powder, any of the dry or fresh herbs you enjoy in your curry (cardamom powder, coriander powder, garlic, ginger, chilli etc) and a 1/2 jar of tomato sauce if a tomato based curry. Put it in the fridge overnight. Next day heat it up and serve it over rice with any fresh herbs you have. enjoy your curry!
