Monday- Coconut Curry Chicken
I love trying new things but they have to taste good! Which is why I love this Coconut Curry Chicken from Delicious Little Bites. The perfect blend of sweet and spicy, this curry is a great way to start off the week! Because of this recipe, I have become obsessed with Coconut milk. I now strongly believe that everything tastes better when cooked in Coconut milk.
Tuesday- Fajita Burgers
I love fajitas and burgers so why not combine the two into something magical? These Fajita Burgers from Buns in my Oven brings the best of both worlds into a tasty and sensational combo that’ll rock your world!
Wednesday- Crispy Lemon Garlic Chicken and Veggies
I love it when my sides are cooked in with my main dish. I can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve made dinner and forgot to make a side dish! That is why I love this Crispy Lemon Garlic Chicken and Veggies dish from Life in the Lofthouse. It’s delicious, easy, sides included, and easy has a super simple cleanup!
Thursday- Quick and Easy One-Pot Pancit
Have you ever had pancit? You need to try it! This Quick and Easy One-Pot Pancit from Living Well Mom is ready in just 30 minutes for those nights where you are just too busy to prepare a gourmet meal. Pancit is a Filipino recipe that has rice noodles, chicken, shrimp, and all sorts of yummy vegetables in it. Tasty, quick, and easy clean up–what’s not to love!
*Check out our Twice Baked Potato side dish for tomorrow, today, as it requires the filling to be made the day before*
Friday- Baked Parmesan-Crusted Chicken
Ditch the fried chicken for a change and swap it for Baked Parmesan-Crusted Chicken from Averie Cooks. This recipe is so good you’ll think you are eating fried when you really aren’t! Tender, moist, and pure heaven all ready in less than 30 minutes!
*Side Dish- Twice Baked Potatoes
I LOVE Twice Baked Potatoes and this Yellow Bliss Road recipe does it justice! It’ll have to refrigerate overnight though so make sure to plan in advance. But don’t worry it is TOTALLY worth it and make dinner a breeze since you’ll have all the prep work done the day before.
Saturday- Chicken Alfredo Baked Ziti
Baked Ziti or Chicken Alfredo for dinner? You don’t have to choose between the two anymore! Chicken Alfredo Baked Ziti from Gimme Some Oven is too good to be true! Cheesy and delicious this is the perfect combination for all those pasta lovers out there!
Sunday- Salsa Verde Pork Tenderloin
Salsa Verde Pork Tenderloin from Buns in my Oven is gonna be your new go to recipe for making pork tenderloin. Topped with a delicious tomatillo salsa this pork tenderloin is super moist and bursting with flavor.
*Dessert- Skillet Pizookie
If you’ve never had a pizookie before now is your chance! Don’t know what a pizookie is? It’s basically a mix between how you would cook a good deep dish pizza, but with cookie dough. This recipe by Chelsea’s Messy Apron has a sugar cookie base, a Reese’s candy interior, M&M cookie topping and pure joy throughout! It is also really good topped with ice cream and it is big enough to share!
