Menu Plan Mar 20-26

Last week I was very organized and pretty much stuck to my menu.
(which I barely ever do, so I was kinda excited to share that with you!)

The highlight of our week (as far as meals go) was definitely the Spicy Honey Chicken, that I FINALLY managed to make.
OH.MY.WORD people- this recipe is simply to die for.
My husband dubbed it as his new favorite chicken recipe (and that is saying a lot considering my obsession with chicken when we were first married!)
He even ate the leftovers the next day.... this is shocking, as my husband simply does not do leftovers. Period. But he was more than happy to eat this chicken, and is already asking when I will make it again :)

Now onto this weeks plan.
I am going to attempt to clean out my freezer this week, and so our menu will be planned around what I have right now at home.

Monday: Ham and Potato soup (from the freezer)
Tuesday: Homemade Turkey Soup
Wednesday: Easy Chicken Parmesan (recipe at bottom of this post)
Thursday: Sweet and Sour Meatballs
Friday: Homemade Pizza (here's the dough recipe)
Saturday: Souvlaki Pork Chops (this one sounds very fancy, but we cheat and buy them pre-seasoned from our grocery store and just throw 'em on the BBQ. They are so tender and so delicious! )
Sunday: Leftovers Buffet :)

Easy Chicken Parmesan
(from a Kraft Canada Magazine)

1 jar(700 ml) pasta sauce
6 tbsp parmesan grated cheese
6 small boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups mozzarella shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 375*. Pour sauce into 13x9 in baking dish. Carefully stir in 4 tbsp (1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese. Add chicken; turn over to evenly coat both sides with sauce. Cover with foil.

Bake 30 mins. (I usually need to bake mine for closer to an hour- but I tend to use large pieces of chicken) Uncover.

Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese; continue baking 5 mins, or until chicken is cooked through (170*F) and cheese is melted. Serve over hot cooked pasta.

  1. gosh -- we must think alike. We have three meals in common this week :) Hope you have a great one.

  2. Mmm that spicy honey chicken sounds yummy! And my hubby loves chicken too, so we'll see what the verdict is at my house!!

  3. Sounds great! I love making food that makes my hubby happy too. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  4. My hubby is a bit of a chicken fiend too, so I'll be sure to give this one a try!

  5. Yummy! I so need to do this on my blog! My husband's been harping on me to do a menu plan for ages!

  6. One of my favorite meals growing up was similar except that instead of all the different spices, it was essentially honey and curry powder with some butter mixed in. SO. GOOD. The one you linked sounds awesome too.

    I found your blog through your comment on Sheila's blog (she commented above). For your blogroll, looks like we read many of the same blogs.

    Where in Canada are you?

  7. Don't you just love it when your family let's you know that they love your cooking?
    These high winds are really kicking those of us wih allergies. Ugh!
    Well, while I'm waiting for the coffee to brew I thought I would stop by MPM blogs and see what's being served.
    Your menu sounds delicious.


Thanks so much for leaving your comments. I absolutely love hearing from you :)
