Happy Monday! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared our weekly meal plan with you all- it’s been a busy month of getting ready to release Balance in a Bowl (click here to get on the waitlist and mark your calendar for May 6th!) so this week has felt like the first ‘normal’ (not a ton of recipe testing and photographing) week in a little while- and this one is full of some of our family’s favorites!

Here’s what’s on our meal plan, this week:

Meal 1: Pizza chicken tenders + sweet potato fries + roasted broccoli

These pizza chicken tenders are a go-to for all of us! The kids love to help me make them, as well which is always a fun bonus! We serve them up with sweet potato fries (used frozen, this time) and roasted broccoli (another family favorite). Get the recipe: Pizza Chicken Tenders

Meal 2: Enchiladas

I‘m actually testing out a new enchilada recipe this week- but this green chile enchilada recipe one is our go-to! Get the recipe: Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

Meal 3: Chickpea Cauli Curry Bowls with green curry simmer sauce

This recipe is coming soon to a computer/ipad/phone near you– including my new favorite green curry simmer sauce (it’s delicious on everything from chickpeas to chicken to salmon!) in my new Balance Bowls e-book, launching May 6th. We loved it so much the last time we made it, we’re making it again!

Meal 4: Perfect Seared Salmon

We got our Butcherbox order last week, which usually means salmon the next week! We love their wild caught salmon, so this week we’re making perfect seared salmon with asparagus and hollandaise (we’re studying Julia Child this week in homeschool!) and rice.

Meal 5: Chicken Picatta

Come and join me to make this in my weekly Cook with Kris on Thursday at 2pm EST over on my Instagram!
