This weeks dinner menu includes a favorite and a couple new recipes.
Monday- Homemade pizza (Publix has their pizza dough on sale B1G1)
Tuesday- Easy Chicken Crockpot Tacos; this is a recipe I found on Pinterest a long time ago and it is great!
, but I cannot find the original post for it. Here is what I have written down though! Here is the original recipe. (Please note that the original recipe was not made in a crockpot. You can definitely make it the original way, but if I can make something delicious in my crockpot and not have to “cook” it myself, I will! So, if you want to cook it in the crockpot, just follow the directions below!)
3 chicken breasts
1 pack ranch dressing mix
1 pack taco seasoning mix
1 can chicken broth
Put all the ingredients in the crock pot and cook for 6 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Remove and shred. Put into soft or hard taco shells and top with your favorite taco toppings. We like guacamole, sour cream, cheese, taco sauce, and lettuce!
Wednesday- Crockpot Jambalaya; this is a new recipe found here
Thursday- French Dip Crescents; another new one found here
Friday- Chicken Taquitos; I like to make these the same week that I make the chicken tacos and I use the leftover chicken from the tacos. This recipe was adapted from this one.
4c shredded cooked chicken
12 tortillas (I use flour)
2 c shredded cheese
4 oz cream cheese
2 tbsp butter
1/3c enchilada sauce
2 tbsp oil
Preheat oven to 425-degrees.
Melt butter in a saucepan, add cream cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Add milk and simmer 5-8 minutes. Stir in the enchilada sauce.
Mix chicken in the cheese sauce.
Fill tortilla with 1/3c chicken and 2 tbsp shredded cheese. Roll tortilla tightly and place on a oiled baking sheet. Brush the tops and sides of the taquito with oil and bake 15 minutes turning every 5 minutes. Serve with salsa and/or guacamole.
Saturday- Pork Tenderloin with Mashed Potatoes; this pork recipe is a new one for me and it can be found here
Well, that is what we are having this week. Hope it helps you plan your week!
