Easy Grilled Chicken & Ham Cobb Salad is a perfect weeknight dinner idea. Make this in no time with ingredients you can prep the night before.
I really cannot believe that the summer has almost come to an end. It seems as if school was just let out and I was planning all sorts of summer fun activities for my kids.
Now, I am pondering over which places to buy their school uniforms from and how I am going to have to adjust my routine.
Boy, am I going to miss the easy, breezy, summer! Honestly, these past 2 months have been wonderful for meal planning because our schedules are much more relaxed.
With back to school season starting soon, I am already thinking about quick and easy meal plans I can come up with until we adjust to our tighter schedules.
You can find these ingredients pretty much anywhere you shop. You can also use any brands you might personally prefer.
I will likely not have the time to grill my own chicken so products like Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken are a lifesaver!
My kids are on a ham and cheese sandwich kick so the Hillshire Farm® Farm Classics Lunchmeats are perfect to always have on hand. I love how fresh these lunchmeats are, and the fact that I can just grab and go without having to wait at the deli for what seems like hours.
Since most of us can agree that we are on time crunches when our kids return to school, I wanted to create a fresh and easy dinner option that is loaded with shortcuts and kitchen hacks!
This Easy Grilled Chicken & Ham Cobb Salad is perfect for back to school because you can prep the ingredients ahead of time.
To stay on track with nutritious eating during the back to school crunch I often boil a dozen of eggs at a time. Chopping salad vegetables and packing them into glass containers for the fridge is also a time saver.
This allows me to always have access to meal components and healthy snacks.
The Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken fillets can be cooked in the microwave in under 5 minutes, and the lunch meat is easy peasy to enjoy.
