Happy Columbus Day and Meal Planning Monday!

Happy Columbus Day!

The kids are off from school so we are going to see: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day! I've heard it's awesome. Stay tuned for my review!

In the meantime here's a little something new I am trying this week for a meal!

Tuscan Chicken Skillet- found it on Pinterest. Follow me there! Recipe by The Wanderlust Kitchen

Serves: 4
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb. chicken breast tenderloins
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • ½ tsp. thyme
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • ⅔ c. sundried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (15 oz) can Cannelini Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 (15 oz) cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Parsley for garnish
Make Stuffed Peppers with Pork Sausage
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large sauté pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, then add the chicken and brown for 3 minutes on each side.
  2. Remove chicken and set aside on a plate. Add the remaining tablespoon olive oil to the pan. Add the sliced mushrooms in a single layer and brown, working in batches, a few minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the garlic, and sundried tomatoes. Sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in the diced tomatoes, spices, beans, and sugar.
  4. Transfer the chicken back to the pan and spoon some of the sauce and vegetables over top of the chicken. Cook, covered, on the stove top until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is bubbling, about ten minutes. Return the mushrooms to the pan. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Serve hot, garnished with parsley.

Hope you enjoy the movie.
The dinner looks appetizing. I have been looking for ideas because I have been bringing in meals to my parents once a week or so. (They are in their 80's and both have had severe health issues and this cuts down on their "worrying" about dinner).
Enjoy the day with your children.
