Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of August 29th
For a quick, tasty dinner that's perfect during the warm weather months, pick up a rotisserie chicken, and you're halfway to a delicious chicken salad. In this recipe, sweet grapes and a nutty, toasted Egyptian spice blend called dukkah--easy to make at home--take chicken salad in a whole new direction.
This is the simple, quick, hearty food you want as the kids go back to school and schedules get hectic. The canned goods in this dinner make it super simple, and the prep comes together quickly. Set it on the table with toppings you have on hand: cheddar, sour cream, green onions, radishes, and lime wedges.
Step up your Caesar salad game with crispy artichokes and grilled chicken. Toss kale with half of dressing and top with chicken, onion and artichokes. Drizzle with remaining dressing, sprinkle with pepper and serve.
This is a riff on the Korean rice dish bibimbap, in which various toppings are arranged over a bed of rice. Here, California Caprese bowl must-haves such as thinly chopped peeled avocado, tomato wedges, and fresh mozzarella cheese top brown rice.
A gooey, golden-crisp grilled cheese sandwich is the perfect partner to simple tomato soup. We lean on reduced-fat cheddar but add a little canola mayo to stretch the cheese and encourage extra meltiness for a mixture that has 50% less sat fat than regular cheddar and saves 190mg sodium over processed American cheese.
You'll be the new favorite house on the block when you serve Peaches & Cream Pie at your end of summer BBQ. We use a package of vanilla pudding mix and canned sliced peaches to save time in this cool and creamy dessert.
