How does a 1.25 lb. chicken dinner at LESS than $.98 per person for sound?!?

Dinner for 4 thanks to shopping sales at Seafood City in Mira Mesa and the 99 Cent Store.  Buttermilk Ranch dressing ($.99/bottle) on romaine salad ($.99/3 heads) complementing 5  lbs. of home cooked fried chicken thighs & drumsticks ($.39/lb.) comes to $3.93 TOTAL spent to feed 4 people!  However, I say LESS than $.98 per person because: I didn’t use the whole bottle of dressing, all 3 heads of romaine lettuce, and not everyone can eat 1.25 pounds of fried chicken !
