Menu Plan Monday 8-11-08

Monday - - Brats and Pasta Salad

Tuesday - - Zesty Chicken BBQ - Crock Pot that I found over at Motherhood for Dummies. It looks amazing and I'm always up for a new crock pot dish!
  • 6 Frozen skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 (18 ounces at least) bottle of BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup fat-free Italian dressing (can use Zesty Italian also)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 TBS lemons juice
  • You also add what ever veggies you want (olives, onions, mushrooms, chives. I like to just throw in what extra veggies I have)

1. Place chicken in the crock pot. In a bowl mix the BBQ sauce, Italian dressing, brown sugar, and veggies all together. Pour over chicken

2. Cover and cook 3-4 hours on High or 6-8 hours on Low.

Wednesday - - Leftovers and salad

Thursday - - Crock Pot Fettucini Alfredo found at John Deere Mom! Yeah! Another crock pot recipe! This is a great week!
  • 1.5-2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 jar alfredo sauce

Friday - - Cheesy Chicken Parmesan. I found this on a spaghetti sauce container awhile back and have been wanting to try it out!
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 26 oz spaghetti sauce
  • 6 slices mozzarella cheese
  • optional chopped parsley
Place egg and parmesan cheese in separate shallow bowls. Dip each chicken breast fillet in egg, then cheese, coating well. Heat oil in large skillet over med-high heat. Cook chicken for about 5 minutes on each side or until no longer pink and cheese coating is golden brown. Remove from skillet; set aside. Wipe remaining oil from skillet.

Pour sauce into skillet. Arrange chicken in sauce. Spoon some sauce over each piece of chicken and top each with a slice of cheese. Heat, covered, over mid heat about 5 minutes, or until sauce is heated through and cheese is melted. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
