Meal Plan Monday… It’s a crock pot world

Well, my friends, we have made it to another Monday. Which means *sigh* another week of trying to come up with new and different meals to feed our families.

This week I am going with simple and crock pot.

Monday: Crock Pot Mexican chicken… seriously, super simple! 4 frozen chicken breasts, a bag of frozen corn, a jar of salsa, packet of taco seasoning, can of drained black beans and a chopped onion. That’s it. In a crock pot. 4 hours. period. shred the chicken, and return to the pot. Add 8 oz of cream cheese, stir in and turn off the crock pot. LEt sit for 10 minutes. I Serve it on tortillas, or over rice. Or eat it out of the pot, or out of the fridge when no one is looking… It is GOOD! It will change your life. seriously.

Tuesday: Fabulous marinated and grilled chicken from the cookbook “In the kitchen with Rosie” with a greens salad and dressing

Wednesday:Impact night, and pizza

Thursday: Chicken and Veggie Curry –  a new recipe I am trying out before I start on my cleanse on June 11.

Friday: Home made broccoli parmesan sop from the Peter Christian’s Recipes Book

Saturday: Left overs


I have just dug around in my recipe book shelf, and found a cookbook that I simply HADDDDD to buy 3 years ago *Cool Kitchen by Lauren Chattman* and have never once, not ONCE, used. I am going to try 2 recipes from it next week.

    Just ran across my Cool Kitchen. I’ll have to open it at some point. Your meals sound great, and I can vouch for the crock pot Mexican chicken. The best!

    The Crock Pot Mexican Chicken sounds great! Do you put the chicken breasts in frozen or do you have to thaw them first?

      I put them right in frozen. Except today, because I had to buy the breasts this afternoon, so I dropprd the cooking time by an hour. The only way this recipe comes out bad is when it is overcooked, so check it.
