Need a little less stress in your life? Midweek Menu makes meal planning less hectic with four easy-to-make recipes that fit perfectly together! This menu is all you need to make dinner time special with the ones you love.
I’m a huge fan of the Crock Pot, it’s a tried and true method of ‘hands-free’ cooking, and my newest obsession is Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan. It has all the flavors of the classic recipe, but it’s so much simpler to make since you can set it and forget it until dinner time. The chicken is tender, juicy, and perfectly cooked every time!
Want To Know More About Slow Cooking?
If you are new to cooking with a Crock Pot or just don’t know where to start, I’ve got something to help. I’ve put together a helpful guide with tips and recipes to get you using a slow cooker like a pro!
I don’t know about you all, but I like to snack while cooking dinner. My favorite snack option is Baked Salami Chips. You can serve these delicious, easy-to-make chips with a homemade dipping sauce for a tasty appetizer or pack the leftovers into school lunches the next day. Make sure to bake a double-batch, though, these Salami Chips disappear quickly!
Anytime you make a hearty main dish like Chicken Parmesan, I recommend serving it with a lighter side dish like my Easy Roasted Broccoli recipe. If you’re looking for a recipe that even the pickiest veggie eaters will enjoy, this 5-star-rated recipe is it!
Let’s not forget about dessert! Since the weather has started to cool down, it’s time to bring back everyone’s favorite fall dessert! Pumpkin Crinkle Cookies are light, fluffy, and full of warm autumn flavors. You can enjoy these cookies with afternoon coffee or as a late-night sweet treat that everyone will love!

Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan
Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan is a classic Italian-inspired meal that’s easy to make and perfect for busy days. This hands-off cooking method makes tender, juicy chicken that’s slow-cooked in Mariana sauce and then finished with a topping of rich shredded cheese. Serve it over pasta for a one-pot dish everyone will love!
Salami Chips with Mustard Horseradish Dip
When it’s time to serve up an appetizer that’s easy to make and full of flavor, then baked salami chips are the answer. Add in a creamy dip made with mustard and horseradish then you’ve got something that folks just can’t get enough of!
Easy Roasted Broccoli Recipe
Fresh broccoli, roasted with olive oil, nutty Parmesan cheese, and crunchy homemade breadcrumbs might just be the best, most simple side dish ever! Even the pickiest veggie eater will love this toasty version.
