Okay, so it’s Tuesday… which means it’s time for Menu Plan Monday, right? So sorry, Kelley, I know this drives you nuts!! I was going to try to post it last night, just to calm your OCD streak, but I laid down to get Jude to sleep and never got back up 🙂
Monday: Breakfast dinner (scrambled eggs, sausage and biscuits)
My don’t- have- any- better- ideas/too- lazy- to- fix- anything- more- laborious dinner… Kids love it so I always have some sausage in the freezer for this kind of night!
Tuesday: Mexican Chicken, Cilantro Cole Slaw, chips and salsa
4 chicken breasts
1 can whole green chilis
4 slices pepper jack cheese
1 lg egg
1 c. finely crushed tortilla chips
Salsa for garnish
In between two pieces of wax paper, flatten chicken breasts to 1/8″ using mallet or rolling pin. Top each breast with 1 chili and 1 slice pepper jack. Roll up and use toothpick (or unwaxed, unflavored dental floss) to secure. Whisk together egg and 2 T water. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then roll in crushed tortilla chips. Bake in a greased 13 x 9 pan at 35 for 30-35 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
Cilantro Cole Slaw
2 lg limes, juiced
1/4 c olive oil
1 envelope Zesty Italian Dressing
2 (11 oz) packages cole slaw
1/3 c fresh cilantro
Combine first 3 ingredients well, add cole slaw and top with cilantro. Chill for at least 2 hours, mix well before serving.
These two recipes are new to me, don’t they sound absolutely yummy!? We all love Chicken Cordon Bleu around here, but this sounds like a whole new way to make it. I’ll give a quick review of both recipes next week once the fam has given the thumbs up or the thumbs down 🙂
Wednesday: Beef Stroganoff, peas
Thursday: Easy One Pan Chicken Parmesan, bread, salad
Friday: Pot Roast, veggies, cornbread
Sunday: Eat out day!
I’ve been ending up with an extra meal at the end of each week. I think I am overplanning, so this week I’ll leave Sunday open (we do eat out for lunch) since I think I don’t need that extra meal.
can you please post the recipe for the one pan chicken parm?
Sounds yummy! I keep finding we have some extra food too which I enjoy having for lunches. Sure beats having yet another sandwich!

You’re just going to keep doing this until I get off my lazy hiney and make a meal plan! 🙂 Maybe that will be my New Year’s resolution!
I wish the meal plan came with a meal MAID to cook it all while we’re at soccer, dance, etc!
Great job, Stefanie and thanks for sharing the yummy recipes…now I’m off to eat at our local Mexican restaurant! 🙂
Thanks for sharing recipes again! The Cilantro Cole Slaw sounds yummy and looks easy — just my style.
Saw Jude’s update on Myadoptionwebsite today. The pictures of him are so cute. He is truly a precious gift from God!
