My Pinterest Food Wins

By 3:28 PM , ,

I DREAD cooking everyday. I'll be honest. It is just not something I enjoy...the worst part to me is planning, grocery shopping, and the clean up. O.k. pretty much all of it...Haha but no really, by the time I get home from work I only have about an hour and half with my sweet little baby before he goes to bed and that time is super precious to me. The last thing I want to do is spend all my time in the kitchen cooking thus not getting to spend quality one on one time with my baby boy. 

Dinner is always a struggle because the little guy is already starving by the time we walk in the door so I need something that can easily be prepared and put on the table. Due to this my crock pot has become one of my best friends. Today I thought I would share with you some of my favorite quick, easy, and toddler friendly meals from my pinterest board which is where I store all my favorite recipes. Here are my top 10 favorite chicken and soup recipes on pinterest that are easy to make on weeknights. 

1. Two Timin Pasta Bake: basically Olive Garden but in your own kitchen. This not the healthiest of recipes but it tastes great and makes a lot so you can feed a crowd or have leftovers. Pair with a salad and some garlic bread and you are set. 

2. Carrot/Chicken Soup: this recipe came from a friend of mine who posted the recipe on instagram so I course pinned. It is now one of our favorites.

3. Crockpot Chicken: this has become our hands down favorite crockpot recipe. It is so great that I won a contest with it. We love this chicken over bow tie pasta. 

4. Italian Favorite: can you tell we like pasta at our house? Another easy, delicious pasta dish. Pair with a salad and some wine and you are set. 

5. Easy White Chicken Enchiladas: we add salsa and top with avocado. Yum. 

6. BBque Chicken and Cheese Rollups: this one is delicious and fun to let the kids help out with.

7. Barbque chicken in the crockpot: delicious and is ready when you get home from work. Makes a ton of chicken so you can have sandwiches for days. We also like to use the leftovers and stuff baked potatoes with the chicken. 

8. Caprese grilled chicken: this is one of those recipes that screams good weather to me.

9. Crockpot Potato soup: perfect for a cold or rainy day.

10. Tomato and Basil Chicken: delicious. 

What are some easy go-to weeknight meals that your family enjoys? Please share; especially if they don't include chicken ; )!
