7 Easy Meals in One Week ...

We all love home cooked meals, don't we? But sometimes it is impossible to get the food on the table, on time, and still do everything else that is needed. I have put together my favorite, easy ways to get dinner on the table while cooking good foods. No one says you have to spend all day cooking good foods...

1. Chicken Parm Sandwiches:

To make this meal you will need the following ingredients:
Pre-cooked Breaded Chicken Patties
Kaiser Rolls
Marinara Sauce
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

This one is real simple, you cook the breaded chicken patties according to package directions. During the last five minutes of cook time you take them out of the oven, add the sauce and sprinkle each piece of chicken with some shredded cheese. Return them to the oven and let them cook until the cheese is completely melted and starting to bubble. After you have removed them from the oven, let them sit for about five minutes, this way you avoid the cheese sliding off when placing them each on their rolls. To finish, place each piece of chicken on a roll and serve. I usually serve this with French Fries because you can place the baking sheets for both items side by side in the oven and they both have about the same cook time and temperature.

2. Cheesy Mexican Cheddar Chicken:

To make this meal you will need the following ingredients:
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
Mesquite Flavored Barbecue Sauce

To begin making this dish, you will start by trimming any fat from each piece of chicken and then placing them in a glass baking dish. Lightly coat each piece with the Barbecue sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the chicken is done. Remove from oven, and coat each piece with barbecue sauce again. Sprinkle each piece with Shredded cheese and place back in the oven for 10 minutes or until cheese has melted. I serve this dish with Spanish rice and a vegetable.

3. Chicken Quesdillas:

To make this dish you will need the following ingredients:
Tyson Fajita or Southwest Chicken Strips
Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
Whole Wheat Tortilla
Salsa
Sour Cream

Preheat oven to 425 degrees, place one tortilla on baking sheet sprinkle small amount of cheese, spread some chicken out over entire area of tortilla. Sprinkle additional layer of cheese over chicken and place second tortilla on top. Bake in oven for 10 minutes, cut in triangles and serve with salsa or sour cream for dipping. I serve this with a bagged Garden Salad.

4. Pizza Turnovers:

To make this dish you will need the following ingredients:
Pillsbury Pizza Dough
Pizza Sauce
Mozzarella Cheese
Cooking Spray

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and lightly coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Take dough out of can and roll out flat on floured surface. Split dough in two halves and separate. Spread sauce then cheese on each half, fold each half and pinch ends together so pouches are sealed. Bake in oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. These are great by themselves or with French Fries or a bagged Garden Salad.

5. Pepperoni Bread:

To make this dish you will need the following ingredients:
Pillsbury Pizza Dough
1/2 lb of Pepperoni
Cooking Spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and lightly coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Roll out pizza dough flat on floured surface. Sprinkle dough with layer of cheese, and make three rows of pepperoni horizontally and vertically. Sprinkle with cheese again and make one more layer of pepperoni. Roll dough into a loaf, fold the ends of the loaf together and pinch ends closed. Bake loaf in oven for 20 -25 minutes or until loaf is golden brown in color. Slice loaf and serve. I usually serve this with a bagged Garden Salad.
