Welcome to the Let’s Dish weekly Easy Meal Plan! Every Saturday, I’ll provide seven dinner ideas–one for every day of the week–plus two desserts to try during the week. To make your life even easier, every dinner idea will include a suggested side dish. Happy cooking!
EASY SLOW COOKER ORANGE CHICKEN — Better than take-out orange chicken made in the slow cooker!
Side Dish Suggestion: Snap Pea Poppy Seed Salad
SAUTEED CHICKEN WITH FRESH PLUM SALSA — Pan sauteed chicken breasts are finished off with a sweet, fresh plum salsa. Perfect for when you’re eating light!
Side Dish Suggestion: Maple Balsamic Roasted Asparagus with Cranberries and Feta
