Midweek Menu 183 is all about being fast, simple, and flavorful! I’ve got two recipes that are ready to serve in under 30 minutes, a side dish you can prepare ahead of time and a dessert that doubles as breakfast the next day. YUM!
Recently, I’ve been obsessed with Air Fryer Chicken Legs! Since it’s such a light and simple recipe to cook, you can get creative with flavor combinations. Sometimes I’ll sprinkle on some House Seasoning, air fry for 20 minutes, and then dinner is ready to serve. These Chicken Legs are perfectly seasoned without any breading or added oils!
For a quick and fresh side dish, there’s no better option than my Easy Everyday Green Salad! This recipe is super versatile, so you can add whatever you have on hand, and the homemade vinaigrette will take the flavor of your salad to the next level.
Smokey, sweet Chipotle Bacon Baked Beans are the ideal hearty side dish to serve with your light, bright salad. This baked Bean recipe can be made ahead of time and then baked for dinner.
Now, we can’t forget about dessert, especially since the leftovers for this recipe can double as breakfast the next day. Crescent Roll Cream Cheese Danish is a shortcut version of a bakery classic recipe; it’s crispy and buttery on the outside with an irresistible cream cheese filling.
With this menu, your family will be racing to the table before dinner is ready!
