Easy Slow Cooker 4 Ingredient Chicken - Photo

We have our 4th family cooking night this week!  We are making chili and cornbread for some fun football watching food.  I will do a round-up post of our first month of family cooking meals next week.  The other kids highlight this week will be easy sheet pan nachos for a quick weeknight meal.

Have a great week!

Day 1: Chili, Cornbread & Salads for football watching!

This is will be our family cooking night recipe!  I have my own chili recipe that we love but we may test out this one from the new cookbook.

Update: We really enjoyed the cookbook one and you can find the details here.

Day 2: Greek Sheet Pan Chicken & Veggies with Quinoa or Pitas.  Note: This was a new recipe for us and it was great!

Day 3:  Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken – 5 Ingredients! Make it 6 and add your veggie right to your slow cooker –  asparagus, zucchini, carrots, sugar snap peas etc.  Serve with rice or cauliflower rice or rice pilaf.

Day 4: Meatless Meal: Sheet Pan Nachos with a Black Bean & Corn Salad

Family Birthday Dinner for Chris: Orecchiette with Sausage & Broccoli Rabe + Special Cake & Ice-cream

Extras: Gluten Free Oatmeal Almond Flour Muffins (I do not use any oil/butter and add more applesauce as well as 1 1/2 cups oat flour instead of 1 cup) & Banana Date Brownies (these can be a snack or healthy weeknight treat)
