I’m not sure about your family, but we get in a dinner rut a lot around here. I feel like I make the same 5 dishes over and over again Sometimes it’s with chicken, hamburger or turkey meat, but overall it’s the same meal. I know why I always tend to make them too…

They’re easy to prepare.
They don’t require a ton of different ingredients.

I wanted to break out of our shell. Try something new for a change, but it had to fit my criteria for an easy dinner.

On Wednesdays we drive 30 minutes one-way to go bowling every week. We have to leave the house no later than 5:45 to make it there on time. So I prefer a slow cooker meal those nights. I pop the ingredients in the crock pot in the morning and then J can finish up when he gets home a little before 5. That way when I walk in the door I’m not rushing around making dinner.

I hate feeling rushed!

I always get flustered and end of forgetting something.

With a little prep time I pulled together an easy slow cooker meal for this week. On Sunday I prepped a freezer bag full of chicken and a few ingredients, popped it in the freezer then the night before I pulled it out to place in the fridge. That’s all it took for a freezer lemon pepper chicken meal. Simple.

Remember my criteria for a good weeknight dinner?  This one fits them all!

It’s easy to prepare.

It doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.

I also love my slow cooker.  I got as a gift a few years ago and it has earned every penny it costs!  I love that it has a timer, so I can set it to low for 6 hours and then it automatically switched to the keep warm setting.  No more burnt or overcooked dinners!  Here is a Hamilton Beach slow cooker similar to the one I have.  This one is great because it has a strap to seal the lid when traveling.
