Since I started this blog, we have rarely had the same meal twice. This week is all my husband’s favorites (per his request)! I hope you enjoy!
Monday: Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos
When I asked my husband this week what he’d like to see on the menu, TAQUITOS was the first word out of his mouth! I like to substitute Greek yogurt of the cream cheese – adds protein and decreases calories. Serving size: 2 taquitos.
Recipe: Chicken Taquitos
Tuesday: Panko-Crusted Chicken with Roasted Corn Hash and Buttermilk Dressing
For those who like fried chicken, this chicken is a much healthier substitute! I will likely add a green vegetable hash to the side to balance carbohydrate, vegetable, and protein ratios in this dish. Serving size: 4 ounces chicken with 3/4 cup corn hash (or 1 cup non-starchy vegetable hash)
Recipe: Panko Chicken with Corn Hash
Wednesday: Southern Barbecue Bowl
This is a new recipe but my husband loves barbecue and Southern food! Pulled chicken can be substituted for the pork roast and any type of whole wheat grain can be used instead of the bulgur.
Thursday: Brown-Sugar Grilled Salmon
Recipe: Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon
Friday: Spicy Hawaiian Burger
I’ve made this using chicken breast and ground turkey. I highly recommend trying this burger! Serving size: 4 ounce burger patty
