Chicken Thighs, Sweet Potato hash and broccoli

For the chicken (I cooked up a batch of these this weekend)

  • Boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

In a skillet just heat up olive oil. Salt & pepper the chicken thighs and cook for 10 min approximately on each side until they are slightly crispy and done throughout.

Sweet Potato Hash

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Salt & Pepper

Dice sweet potatoes

Heat olive oil in a pan & throw in the potatoes

Add diced garlic and salt & pepper

Cook until potatoes are tender




Hamburgers with a salad:

Hamburger patties~ 

super easy to make up and cook in the skillet. Just a simple seasoning of salt, pepper and garlic.


I have been using iceberg lettuce after the issues with romaine. Then just add your favorites, dice up some carrots, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, etc.

Having a big batch of salad ready makes it easy to get in those veggies. You can also prep, but keep all of the ingredients separate so they don’t get mushy.


Cool Ranch Tacos (I make a few edits to her recipe)

These are super, super easy & here is what you need~


  • Chicken Thighs
  • 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Taco seasoning packet (or click here for a homemade version)
  • 1 Ranch seasoning packet (or use a homemade version-1T dried parsley, 1tsp garlic powder, 1tsp onion powder, 1tsp dried onion flakes, 3/4tsp dill, 1/2tsp pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt)

*Throw everything in the crockpot, Cook on low all day, at least 8 hours

Holy Cow- it doesn’t get much easier than that!
