As a meal planning and meal prep junkie, I usually know what my meals will look like for the whole week before the week even begins. There are some recipes that end up on my meal plan over and over again because they are just so good.
Each of these recipes is easy and makes enough for leftovers which is a must in my book.
Easy Baked Chicken from PB Fingers

Julie’s Easy Baked Chicken recipe is one I go back to at least once a month. The only change I make is using olive or grapeseed oil instead of canola oil. Baked chicken is always a winner in my household and so easy to make.
Almost 5 Ingredient Pizza Spaghetti Pie from PaleOMG
(Juli’s picture from the recipe linked below)
I was weary to try this (almost) 5 ingredient recipe at first but boy am I glad I did. It’s so freaking good! The first time I made it, SL told me not to even try to make him eat it.
Needless to say, he tried it later that day and then went back for seconds! I kitchen winner was born. I’ve made it numerous times since and subbed chorizo for sausage and added green pepper too.
Breakfast Strata from Always Emily H.
This is an oldie but goodie recipe that I got back to time and time again. Stratas are a great way to use up leftover veggies and meats because literally everything goes well with eggs.
I’ve played around with the base using everything from potatoes to waffles to English muffins and they all have worked out perfectly. I love making a big strata on Sunday mornings and individually wrapping serving size pieces to grab and heat throughout the week.
Crockpot Sesame Honey Chicken from skinnytaste

A sweet and spicy combo is always a winner in my book. Over the years, I’ve adapted this recipe to suit our needs a little bit better but the basic concept of it I keep in tact. Bonus: SL loves this meal and doesn’t mind that we eat it often.
Slow Cooker Basil Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce from The Food Charlatan
Talk about the longest recipe title EVERRRRR….

The Food Charlatan’s Slow Cooker Basil Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce is another great crockpot meal that I have made more times than I can count. I usually add more basil then the original recipe calls for but other than that, I stick to the original version.
Chili Maple Baked Chicken from Always Emily H.
This is a recipe that I started making while in survival mode (aka while in grad school). On any given day, I have a bag of this chicken in the freezer waiting for me to defrost and bake it. SL loves it. I love it. And it goes perfectly with any vegetable or starchy side.
