What’s For Dinner? Weekly Meal Plan

Good Morning! Is everyone excited about the holiday this week?!?!? I can’t wait to fire up the grill and relax with Chicken Legs and the cats. The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I love all the fireworks and cooking out. Today, I am sharing our weekly menu that includes our 4th of July menu. SO much yummy food!

Don’t forget my tip for cooking grilled chicken indoors – pan sear 3 or 4 minutes on each side and then bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes. You can check out this post for Cast Iron Skillet Burgers for tips on how to cook the juiciest burgers indoors.

All of the recipes will easily feed a family of four. Many of the recipes can be made in advance and refrigerated or frozen for later. I love to make a few recipes on Sunday for super easy meals during the week.

Click on the photos and recipe titles below to get the recipes. I hope you enjoy the recipes you try this week!!


Nashville Hot Grilled Chicken - grilled version of the best spicy chicken around. Chicken marinated in cayenne pepper, brown sugar, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder and olive oil. Reserve some of the marinade to brush on the cooked chicken if you want it really HOT! Seriously THE BEST grilled chicken recipe! Serve with pickles, ranch and white bread! We are making this again this weekend - SO GOOD!
