I'm keeping it simple and again this week and taking advantage of some leftovers from the weekend. The Hubs grilled a big batch of chicken on Saturday, and yesterday he made a huge slow cooker full of meatballs and sauce. Both of which will come in super handy this week.
Here's what's on our plates this week:
Monday - Oven baked chicken parmigiana. This is one of the Hubs' all time favorite meals, and it's a great way to use leftover sauce. You can pan-fry the chicken if you prefer, but baking it is a bit healthier.

Tuesday - Grilled chicken burrito bowls. This is one of our favorite things to order out, so I thought we'd save some $$ by making them at home using leftover grilled chicken. I'll make both white and brown rice and have plenty of toppings too.

Wednesday - Chicken tortilla soup with lime. I've been waiting for the weather to break so that I can make soup for dinner, but it's been so hot. Finally, this week, the weather will be a little cooler and more conducive to soup for dinner.

Thursday - Vegetable enchilada pie. This is the first time I am making this recipe. I love any recipe from Skinnytaste, so I am quite confident, we will love this one.

Friday - Dinner out or take out.
Saturday - Blackened chicken spinach salad. Lately our Saturdays have been busy. Between errands, shopping, and any last attempts to hit the beach, I don't want to come home and spend hours in the kitchen. This salad is easy to pull together, and to save even more time, grill the chicken in advance.

Sunday - Grilled Caprese pizza. Grilled pizza is so easy to make and has such a better flavor that oven baked pizza. I buy premade dough at Trader Joe's and roll it out and top it. This is a classic pizza, but feel free to top yours as you wish.
