Menu Plan Monday Jan 12th

1 Comment

Last night I had planned on making pork chops, but this head cold has gotten the better of me.  I am not too outwardly sick, but my head is killing me.  The sinus pressure has become unbearable.  So there was no way I was going to cook something that took a lot of work.

Through Pinterest I found a new blog called Yellow Bliss Road and a wonderfully simple recipe for One Pan Spicy Lemon Chicken Pasta (I omitted the tomatoes cause you know me and tomatoes!)  I also only used chicken broth (no water, cause the chicken stock in my freezer was three cups worth) and substituted the mozzarella cheese for a four cheese Italian blend.


So that is what it would have look liked with the tomatoes, and rotelli noodles (which I didn’t use).

So regardless of the minor changes I made the dish was still a hit!  The boys ate all their dinner without complaint, even if prior to dinner Ian told me he didn’t like lemon chicken.  Plus it was so easy to put together! My favorite kind of dinner.

In fact it was all I could do to not plan every night this upcoming week with one of her recipes.  So I compromised on two nights.
