The final week of June is here and we are down to the bare minimum in our pantry and freezer. So we are using up what we have left before we go and do our big July shopping next week.
Don’t forget to grab a button for Menu Plan Sunday and link up your menu at the bottom too.
Monica’s Menu For The Week Of 6/24-6/30
Sunday: Pork chops on the grill with green beans and applesauce. I know this was on the menu last week, but it was about 100 degrees on our porch that night and I couldn’t see my husband cooking in that. So we went out that night to get an hour or so of air conditioning too.
Monday: Oven Fried Chicken with rice pilaff and corn (recipe below).
Tuesday: Meatloaf with rice cooked in beef stock and a garden salad.
Wednesday: Chicken and broccoli over rice.
Thursday: Chicken Alfredo.
Friday: Ranch chicken with egg noodles and whatever vegetable I feel like making that night.
Saturday: Ziti with homemade sauce and a garden salad.
Oven Fried Chicken Recipe
This is another recipe from my mom that I make often and do from memory now. It’s so easy to make. When I was a child my mom used to set up all of the ingredients for me to make it when she was going to be home late. Much healthier for you too than fried chicken.
Chicken thighs or legs (I prefer the thighs)
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp paprika
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flour, salt, pepper, and paprika in a bag and shake. Coat the chicken in the flour mixture and place on a pan with a rack (I actually use my Pampered Chef bar pan without a rack) skin side up.
Place in oven and cook for 1 hour.
That’s it, so simple and so yummy.
