Quick & Easy Meal Plan #1

Welcome to the very first quick & easy meal plan, a new weekly feature here on Sweet Tea & Saving Grace! I’m constantly on the lookout for easy dinner ideas for my family, and I like trying new recipes I find on Pinterest. But they have to be easy meals, because I am not a cook, so I look for meals with very few ingredients that can be thrown together quickly but still taste good. Sound good? Great!

Meal planning doesn't have to suck. These are quick & easy meals that will be easy to fix during a busy week. Plus, there's a printable shopping list to make things even easier!

Each quick & easy meal plan will consist of 4 dinner ideas, 1 dessert, and I may occasionally throw in a cocktail or something special if there’s a holiday coming up.

Here’s the thing about the recipes I choose for my family: I like easy. And by easy I mean as few ingredients as possible. So when I say these recipes are quick & easy, I truly mean it. I want to get in and out of the kitchen and back to enjoying time with my family.



DINNER #1: Parmesan Chicken Roll Ups

A simple Caesar salad would be the perfect pairing with these roll ups!

This is so incredibly flavorful! I used chicken breasts rather than thighs, but it’s your preference. This has become part of our regular meal rotation. Love it!

DINNER #3: 20 Minute Honey Garlic Shrimp

Serve with brown rice & broccoli, naturally.

DINNER #4: Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

I bet this would be delicious with mac & cheese, and maybe some green beans.
