What to Cook: Double Duty Dinners

This week is all about healthy double duty dinners, some meal prep, and stretching leftovers to repurpose into easy weeknight dinners. It’s pantry cooking at its best!  

What to Meal Prep:

This is a super easy meal prep weekend assignment.

Meal prep 2 cups of uncooked quinoa and store it in the refrigerator. I love to use red quinoa, but use whatever variety you have on hand.

If you have a pressure cooker, you might want to check out our 1 Minute Instant Pot Quinoa recipe.

And if you make more than what’s needed… here are some quinoa recipe ideas.

Rotisserie Chicken:

On Tuesday, we’re roasting a whole chicken. While I’ve included our Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken recipe, roast it the way you like it best.

Reserve about 3 cups of cooked shredded chicken for use later in the week.

Pantry Ingredients:

As we are several weeks into cooking out of the pantry, it’s important to note that you may not have all of the ingredients listed in the recipes we share. But don’t let that stop you from swapping in what you do have and getting creative.

A reader inspired me with a comment she made on our enchiladas on Thursday. She gave several examples of swapping and switching — and loving the outcome.

Cooking is about creating a new meal, each and every time you make it.

Have fun in the kitchen this week!

Have a great week everyone.
