What are you planning for dinner tonight? Here’s what’s happening in my house.
Chicken thighs with General Tso’s sauce – super easy
Roasted brussels sprouts – requires 10 min prep, but still pretty easy
Brown rice – microwaveable, so super easy!
For my picky eater kids: Annie’s Stars, apples
What you need:
General Tso’s sauce (any brand – I like the one pictured below. I bet Target has one, too.)
Fresh brussels sprouts
Salt & Pepper
Microwaveable brown rice (any brand – we buy the one below at Costco.)
What you do:
Pour the General Tso’s sauce over the chicken thighs in a baking dish. You won’t need the whole jar unless you’re making a very large portion. It just depends on how “saucy” you want it to be. Personally, I use half a jar for about 6-8 thighs. I don’t think it’s necessary to let it marinate for awhile, but you could. I cook the thighs on 375 for about 25 minutes.
Prepare the brussels sprouts according to this recipe previously featured on our site.
Microwave the rice according to the package instructions (typically 90 seconds). You may need more than one package depending on how many people you’re serving.
That’s it! I love to keep frozen vegetables, boxed salad and microwaveable rice on-hand at all times for busy evenings and nights when we’re just having leftovers. If you’re short on time, you could swap the brussel sprouts for frozen green beans or corn, or perhaps just throw together a quick salad.
Easy, healthy dinner.
