Menu Plan Monday: Rubber Chicken

Well, it’s another week to stretch the budget. The easiest way to do that is with a rubber chicken. Don’t worry, I’m not eating, nor feeding my kids actual plastic. That’s reserved for certain fast food restaurants that make me feel ill now that I’ve been eating clean for so long.

We’re going to make a whole chicken stretch as far as humanly possible in one week. And with another heat wave hitting the southland, I am breaking out the crockpot. The rest of the week will either be no cook or 30 minute or less meals.

Monday: Herb Roasted Chicken and Vegetables
Tuesday: Santa Fe Chicken Salad (I’m going to cheat because Fresh and Easy has a bagged southwest salad that is pretty tasty)
Wednesday: Back to School Night so we’ll probably pick up Subway
Thursday: Chicken Curry

We’re road-tripping this weekend to visit family so Friday might include some chicken salad sandwiches to take on the trip.
