Meal planning is definitely one of those things that comes and goes in our house. There are some weeks where I have everything from breakfast to snacks to dinner all mapped out, broken down on a shopping list, and ready to go. I love those weeks; if you know me, you know that a hungry Meghan is not a good thing.
Then there are the weeks I sort of lose inspiration or don’t have time and everything is up in the air. You know, the weeks where you are scrounging around the fridge for ingredients for some semblance of a meal.
Sometimes, though, the things you have laying around make for one tasty dinner, like crispy, cheesy chicken tenders with a side of roasted broccoli.
This is a super easy recipe. I grabbed one sleeve of whole wheat crackers and pulsed them into crumbs, adding in garlic powder and black pepper to season.
I shredded about a cup of Cabot extra sharp cheddar.
Sprinkled both on the chicken, in layers. . .
And popped the chicken in a 400 degree oven until cooked through.
For a meal with just three ingredients and minimal prep time, this chicken was amazing. It was nicely cheesy and crispy and made for a perfect dinner.
I love when that happens.
Are you good at meal planning, or do you end up scrambling for dinner ideas?
