These Easy Chicken Dinners Will Help Make Your Weekly Meal Plan a Snap!

Skip To Recipe I am the worst at meal planning. I have great intentions. I’ll make a shopping list, pick up what I need, keep the fridge stocked. The problem is by the time I’m ready to break away from work, or whatever I happen to be doing, to start cooking everyone is starving and wants something right now! It doesn’t help that I’m usually not in the mood to cook whatever it is I planned to make for dinner that night anyhow. The week before Christmas I knew was going to be especially busy with afternoon meetings, conference calls, school functions, appointments, and driving my oldest to/from her job. With a little of that “work smarter, not harder” ingenuity, I came up with the perfect menu to help me survive …

Skip To RecipeNOTE: I’m super excited to announce that I was picked the winner of the Sassool Grocery Challenge! Read the official announcement here. A big “Thank you!” to Mounir Saleh and the Sassool team for choosing my dish to be featured in both Sassool locations for the month of January!

All opinions are mine alone. #EatLightEatRight #CollectiveBias I can eat soup anytime… it doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside, a piping hot bowl of Progresso® soup always hits the spot for me. It is a staple in my pantry; I stock up on all the amazing Progresso® Light varieties especially when they are on sale at Walmart. It’s a quick and easy meal that’s filling but low in calories. Perfect on those busy days when I don’t have a lot of time to make lunch. One day I had a major craving for my tortilla soup but I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand. I looked around my pantry to see what I could make and a light bulb went off. I …

I never seem to have enough time to make a proper trip to the store to buy groceries. While I happen to love it, you can only serve breakfast for dinner for so many nights in a row before the kids threaten to call Child Protective Services. Usually to avoid this I’d either run down to …
