Meal Planning Help (And An Easy Dinner Recipe)

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened up my fridge and freezer to figure out what was for dinner and just stood there. More times than I wish to admit we’ve had quesadillas with salsa and fruit on the side because that was easiest to prepare. When I heard about the website Give Every Night New Flavor I wanted to check it out. I loved that I could choose my meal based on what cuisine I was in the mood for, the time I had, and how many people I was looking to feed. The website also let’s you build a printable shopping list and shares coupons for items that you might be buying.

Look how easy meal planning is:

How wonderful of a meal planning tool is that website!?

I wanted to try it out so I found a recipe to make and headed to Food4Less to get my ingredients. I chose an easy meal (only 5 minutes to prepare!) because I’m a busy mom and if it’s not easy it’s not going to get made. Below are some pictures of our shopping trip and meal prep and the directions to make this super easy dinner!

INGREDIENTS:

-2 chicken breasts

-2 cups of broccoli

-1/2 cup of Hunt’s diced tomatoes

-1/4 cup of Italian Dressing

RECIPE:

1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees

2) Lay two sheets of foil on top of each other

3) Put chicken breasts in the center of the foil. Add tomatoes, broccoli, and dressing.

4) Form foil into a pouch, sealing it with space at the top for steam to gather.

5) Place chicken packet on cookie sheet and bake for 25 minutes.

(Caution: When you open the packs be careful not to burn yourself on the steam that will come out.)
