Chickpeas, black eyed peas, split peas, or lentils are cheap and period.
(Rumpolt has a huge number of recipes for dry peas, it must have been 
a staple in even well-to-do houses).

Mancho Blanco (sweetened chicken and rice) is very common in many 
cultures, is very unusual in the SCA (at least in this corner of the 
Known World), but would make a small amount of chicken go quite a 
long way.
