Meal Plan Monday: Family Dinners Week of 3/22

Happy SPRING! 🤸🏻‍♀️🌷 Who else is SO ready to shake off the winter and welcome in some warmth and sunshine? We're slowly transitioning into spring, with this week's meal plan. Still some slow cooker meals, but I am SO excited to get back to the farmer's market and bring more fresh flavors, into our meals!

Here's what's on our meal plan, this week:

Meal 1: Skillet Chicken Pot Pie Still working on getting this one up on the blog for you-- it's similar to my chicken pot pie stew (see the live replay on how I make this one, here) but in a skillet with biscuits on top. SO good. One of my favorite winter-to-spring transition dishes.

Meal 2: Slow Cooker Herbed Chicken + Roasted Veggies

There were whole chickens on sale at Whole Foods so you know I was all over that! I love making a whole chicken in the slow cooker- we have dinner plus leftovers, and I can make homemade broth which I was long overdue, for! I always serve my slow cooker chicken with a ton of roasted veggies (we're doing sweet potato and broccoli, this week).

Make it: Slow Cooker Herbed Chicken Homemade Chicken Broth

Meal 3: Chicken and Portobello Mushroom Fajitas

I shared a reel last week with how I make these easy one pan fajitas into a plant-based portobello mushroom and I am currently obsessed with the mushroom variety! My family, however likes chicken- so I'm using leftover chicken and we're doing 50/50 this week.

Make it: One Pan Fajitas

Meal 4: Asian-inspired Chicken Meatballs + cauliflower rice

It has been WAY too long since I've made these asian-inspired chicken meatballs, and this week is the week! I love these over cauli or regular rice, always with a good dose of almond butter or the best-ever peanut sauce.

Make it: Asian-inspired Chicken Meatballs

Meal 5: Spring Risotto

Come and join me to make this in my weekly Cook with Kris on Thursday at 2pm EST over on my Instagram!
