Need some new ideas for dinner meals? Here is Jen’s weekly dinner menu with notes:
Sunday: Chicken Cacciatore with Steamed Green Beans
After a discussion with one of my clients who has an Italian background, I wanted to try and make Chicken Cacciatore. He said Mama Hassan’s recipe is the one you need to try and sent me the link to the recipe above.
I used only bone in, skin on chicken breast.
Very tasty and the chicken was so juicy.
I love to cook in my very large dutch oven.
Steamed green beans for the side.
Monday: Easy White Chicken Chili
After enjoying lunch bbq at the neighbors, soup for dinner was a nice compliment to the heavy lunch.
This is one of the easiest recipes. Only have to dump 5 ingredients, that require no chopping, into the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours. Just before serving shred the chicken and prepare the toppings.
Tuesday: Caramelized Onion and Caper Pan Seared Salmon with Mixed Greens
I’m not sure where the original recipe came from for topping salmon with caramelized onions and capers, but it’s a great, easy way to change up salmon.
Thinly slice a red onion. Saute over medium-high heat in olive oil in a large skillet until tender and caramelized. Add capers to taste, for me a couple of teaspoons, and saute for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
Top your salmon.
Easy side with just mixed greens.
Wednesday: Sunday’s Leftovers
Still yummy a few days later.
My daughter had the green beans. I had mixed greens on the side.
Thursday: Monday’s Leftovers
This chili tastes even better as leftovers.
Friday: Homemade Pizza and Blistered Olives
If you want to read all about how I make my homemade pizza dough and sauce recipe with fresh mozzarella, check out Friday on this dinner menu.
Love olives and want a tasty amazing snack? Try Blistered Olives. Soooooo gooooood!
Saturday: Dinner Pick Up from Urban Plates
My daughter and I were having dinner at a friend’s house with her daughters and we decided it was a no cooking for mommies night!
I ordered and picked up food from Urban Plates. A new restaurant for us to try. Mostly sustainable meats and organic vegetables. Salads, soups, sandwiches, and entrees.
I got the sirloin with asparagus and roasted carrots and golden beets.
Price was super reasonable.
A total win and I will be back.
Let me know if you try any of these recipes or have good ones of your own to share.
