The first days that the kids head back to school are the best! Everything is organized and most of the items they need for school are purchased. We remember to pack their lunch each night and make sure everyone is dressed and ready for the bus in the morning.

Then, somewhere along the way, it all falls apart. We’re late waking up and uniforms aren’t washed by the next morning. Dinners consist of whatever leftovers we can heat. I get it. I have a teenager and a kindergartner so I have two different schedules to track. This is why I adore life whenever I can find meal ideas that are simple, inexpensive and quick, like our Weeknight Chicken Parmesan!

Simple weekday meals for busy moms

Moms, Don’t Skip Your Healthy Lunch

The first thing moms are likely to forget in any situation is themselves. We’re always first to make sure that our kids or significant others eat their lunches and don’t spoil their dinners, but what about us? Stop sitting at your desk with whatever you could scrounge from the vending machine or cupboard! You need a healthy lunch that can keep your day going.

A tastier and healthier lunch with Hillshire Farms Naturals Slow Roasted Turkey Breast

Hillshire Farm® Naturals is an all natural lunchmeat with the delicious taste you want to come back to. It has no artificial ingredients, no nitrates, and it’s 99% fat free and totally gluten free.

I love a quick, easy, and not-at-all messy sandwich with Hillshire Farm® Naturals Slow Roasted Turkey Breast. I add a little freshly ground pepper and alfalfa sprouts. The sprouts add a light crunch to the sandwich and have a ton of health benefits! They provide antioxidants, a ton of vitamin C, can help lower blood glucose levels, and they have high levels of vitamin K and phytoestrogens (ideal for women)!

I like mine on potato bread, but we should be eating on whole grain bread. 🙂

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Pour a jar of your favorite Marinara in the bottom of a 13×9 casserole dish. Arrange the chicken patties in a single layer on top of the sauce.

Once the oven is heated, bake the Tyson chicken patties in the sauce for 15 minutes. Then, pull the pan from the oven and top the patties with a small handful of a mix of shredded mozzarella and shredded parmesan cheese.

Put back in the oven for 10 minutes. You can also broil for a few minutes to get the cheese bubbly and slightly golden. Serve over your favorite pasta (we use a whole wheat pasta to sneak a little extra healthy benefits in our meal).
