I have been wanting to start meal planning FOR-EVAH! But, I am sooooo not a creative cook! Rice and gravy and spaghetti are pretty much all I can ever think of cooking. Not to mention I am a huge perfectionist and every time I would try to get started I would get overwhelmed because I was so obsessed with it being perfect. But being a perfectionist, I love having a checklist! It makes me feel like I'm not gonna miss anything...kwim? So I was super excited when I found this 30 Meal Plan by Nannygoat. It's laid out for you in 4 easy steps and they even include a few recipes!
But there was still the problem of finding quick, easy, and most importantly kid friendly recipes. So I was even more excited to find Confessions of a Homeschooler's Monthly Meal Plan. Monday was supposed to be Italian Beef Roast. Only problem...I didn't have any of the ingredients, so I improvised. Here's what I came up with....
2 bone-in chicken breasts (you can really use whatever you want)
1 can cream of chicken
2 cans water
dry Italian dressing mix (I used this recipe. I suggest reducing the oregano to only 1 tbsp)
Whisk the cream of chicken, water and dressing mix in a crockpot. Add the chicken and cook on high for 4 hours.
It was a huge hit with me and the kids! This one is definitely going into the recipe book. I also plan to add at the end of each recipe ideas for what to do with the leftovers...
Mini chicken pizzas
Got any other ideas for the leftovers? Leave a link in the comments section so I can check them out!
