Add Sheet Pan Dinners to your Meal Plan
Back to school time often means back to strict meal planning time. Busy parents all around are trying to manage their days with packed schedules and adult obligations.
If you plan your meals ahead of time, food is one less stressor for the day. Of course, meal planning is a chore in itself.
But, if you block out the time to get organized, get all the shopping done, and follow your plan, it’s well worth it.
Due to lack of creativity in the kitchen, chicken dinners got a bad name in this household.
Since we try to cut down on red meat, I need to have lots of unique and tasty chicken recipes lined up.
No one should complain about boring chicken again if it’s served in a variety of ways.
Peach chicken will quickly earn a spot on the regular meal planning rotation.
The dark meat chicken is a switch in itself. Add the rich blend of flavorings and peach chicken is a treat the family will request.
If you’re looking to use up a lot of peaches, maybe you can make your own peach preserves for this recipe.
