So being at home and really having nothing to do other than some work and keeping the house clean I've noticed I've started cooking way more! So I thought I would share some of the yummy dinner's I've been making! All these recipes are so easy and take no time at all to prep and pop in the oven! We buy chicken breast, beef, and fish in bulk from Costco and typically freeze it all, so it just takes me grabbing it out of the freezer and thawing it out most of the afternoon!
So here are some quick easy healthy recipes that the family is sure to enjoy and lets you have a little less stress about spending hours in the kitchen before dinner! Throw these easy recipes together and throw them in the oven, set a timer, and go play with the kids or sit down, relax, and read a book!
Spinach Chicken: This literally took me 5 min to throw together and throw in the oven! I would recommend lightly salting the chicken breast before the cream cheese goes on! I felt our's definitely needed a little salt! other than that this 4 ingredient recipe is so yummy and easy and I added some roasted brussel sprouts and carrots as a side! This would be good over a pasta noodle as well!
Pesto Chicken: This was one of our most recent dinners and it didn't disappoint! I love pesto pasta but since my midwives have really been warning me to cut down on the carbs (like bread & Pasta) and eat more protein I was so ready to try this recipe and it didn't disappoint! I had to cook it about 15 min longer that the recipe said but I used some larger chicken breasts as well!
Chicken & Rice: This one was a very comfort food recipe! I've had a weird love for cottage cheese the last few weeks so I added some yummy roasted potatoes and some cottage cheese and baby was a happy little girl! This might now be everyone's style of food but it made both me and Johns bellies happy!
Side Veggies: One of my favorite ways to make a side of roasted veggies!
I hope this gives a few new options for this week's dinner and getting the family together and having some good chats and laughs over the dinner table! Have a wonderful week everyone! ENJOY!
