CP - here's a list I made once for ideas of ways to use ground beef. it should all work for ground chicken

burgers
meatballs
meat sauce
meatloaf
chili
shephard's pie
sloppy joes
stuffed cabbage
runzas

I know there have been threads done in the past too - I'll do a search for you.

also I found a fun site once with "meatballs from around the world" recipes and we have had fun making quite a few of those. we generally serve those different ones over rice.

here's that site http://www.inmamaskitchen.com/food_i...MEATBALLS.html

and I am searching for the ground beef threads I've seen on here....

Tonight I'm not sure, it's about time to figure it out tough. That is why I came here looking for some inspiration! Any interesting ideas for ground chicken?
White chicken chili! Mmmm

Meatballs over rice or noodles

Season with the spices you like for tacos and use in burritos, or ontop of a taco salad

Hamburgers ... I ground chicken/blue cheese hamburgers!

Tonight is a roast dinner (yum!) fresh whole roast chicken, mashed potato, roast potatoes, other roast veggies, peas and gravy. :

Tomorrow will be chicken and vegetable casserole, using the chicken meat left-over from today and some fresh veggies. I'll also make some mashed potato to eat with it, and serve some bread to eat soaked in the gravy. :

Last night was hamburger stroganoff. Tonight I haven't QUITE decided yet (I need to start meal planning!) but it will either be soup (cabbage soup) or chicken something-or-the-other.

Ok tonight is the steak fajitas, steak is thawing now! We'll have rice too and the boys get quesadillas.

I can't decide between stir-fry with sweet brown rice, curried vegetables and chicken and naan, or bean soup with bread... I better decide quick so if I need to I can put the beans on to cook!

I ended up fixing curried vegetables and naan. DH and the kids LOVED it! It was a huge hit! I think I'll have to put it into my regular rotation.

Tonight was pizza

Tomorrow I'm making Milk braised Pork Roast with mashed potatoes and asparagus. YUM!!
post #172 of 205
Tonight is pepperoni or cheese pizza

Alyantavid can I ask why do you and your dh eat different foods to your sons?
post #173 of 205
Sometimes, its because we eat things with cheese or milk or some other dairy product the boys can't have. Sometimes its things they don't like, like fajitas. Most of the time, we all eat the same thing, but I'm not going to force them to eat something they hate if it takes me 2 minutes to make a quesadilla instead.

Tonight, I'm not sure. Dh won't be home, so I'm not making the steak he wanted. I think I'll let the boys decide.

i need to make room in my ridiculously overstuffed freezer so I have decided to eat a frozen meal one time a week.

tonight I found a tomato veggie soup I had made and frozen in there LOL. I am mixing it with some more leftover sauteed veggies I had in the fridge and serving it over whole wheat penne. should be yummy

Gotya! I know what that's like too because my ds can't have cows milk, eggs or anything with nuts. :
