Notes

Smart Shopping Tips
  • Frozen chicken thighs or breasts are a great item to have on hand for quick, healthy meals. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Broccoli should be firm and bright green without yellowing or brown florets.
  • Fresh vegetables that are precut can save you prep time, but they will be more expensive.

  • Vary the seasonings for your family’s taste. Try adding paprika or any dried or fresh herbs you like.
  • Use chicken breasts in place of thighs.
  • Try adding savory vegetables such as onions or mushrooms.
