Another week, another weekly meal plan! We’ve been sticking to our no eating out challenge (halfway through) and prepping a menu like this really helps keep us on track.
Check out this week’s lineup if you need a little dinner inspiration.
Fiesta Chicken and Carrot Rice // A recipe from the Skinnytaste One and Done cookbook, this was SO good. You don’t even miss the rice, and this is loaded with veggies! It’s a little bit of prep, but the dish comes together in a single skillet, cutting back on cleanup time, and helping get dinner onto the table STAT. We served ours with fresh avocado and tomatoes, which I recommended as the fresh ingredients really kick it up a notch!
Chicken Pesto Ravioli // Kid approved and very tasty. The key is cooking the pasta in chicken broth for extra flavor. It’s great as leftovers the next day, and you can prep ahead of time, freeze and reheat for later.
Ribs // We got some ribs when they were on crazy sale and made a simple dry rub of spices and cooked low and slow in our Nesco for a few hours. You can top with BBQ sauce if you want, or just go with the rub. We served with mixed vegetables and rolls.
Turkey Meatballs // Easy to make in a big batch at the beginning of the week and using them for a bunch of different meals. We made ours in the air fryer and they came out perfect and moist. Serve over pasta, quinoa, zoodles, or in a pita with marinara sauce.
Chicken Cordon Bleu // Another recipe from the Skinnytaste One and Done cookbook, with chicken lightly pan fried in a delicious sauce. One dish too! We added mushrooms and green beans to ours.
Make Your Own Pizza // We follow this simple recipe to make our own dough and then added our toppings and served with a salad. We ended up doubling the recipe to make a batch of these delicious everything bagels– YUM.
*One of our nights this week we just had a “wing it” night since we had soccer and meetings going on. That usually consists of leftovers, a stash of soup I had from the freezer, or sandwiches and smoothies.
I also made a batch of these green smoothie muffins for quick breakfasts during the week (and lunch- per Bryce’s request), and a batch of apple crisp for dessert over the weekend.
