Sometimes the hardest part of the day is figuring out what to make for dinner. If, after reading this post, that is still the hardest part of your day, then you must be retired in paradise and I’d like to come live in your guesthouse!
Broccoli and cheddar and chicken (or chickpeas!) are nutritious and quick to throw together on weeknight. So what else is key to have on hand as a vehicle for tasty veggies and lean protein?
We’re here to answer that! Here are some quick, easy vehicles for chicken/broccoli/cheddar, and each is less painful than stepping on a hot wheels car with bare feet.
Baked into a casserole!
Stir-fried with rice!
Baked into crescent roll dough – mini hot...calzones!
Toppings on a pizza – pick up the dough at the store!
Added to muffin-tin egg cups!
Tossed with whole wheat pasta!
Piled onto some baked potatoes!
Inside stuffed shells!
Turned into broccoli and cheddar soup!
Or skip the vehicle entirely and bake the broccoli and cheese right into the chicken! If you bread it first, you can call it Chicken Kiev! This is a little tougher with chickpeas ;) but tofu works quite well!
