It works with boneless or bone-in chicken breasts, thighs or drumsticks (whatever you have on hand). Plus it’s delicious!

Greek Lemon Chicken is a great way to mix up your weekly meal plan. It’s unique flavor pairs well with couscous, rice, salad, quinoa or a variety of different vegetables. Modifications I love these crock-pot recipes that you can easily combine in a ziplock bag and freeze. Just cook it another hour or two when you add it to the crock-pot frozen.

Mix and match your favorite flavors with this simple vegetable soup. Different combinations of vegetables create a slightly different flavor every time. And it’s simple to use seasonal ingredients without having a dozen distinct recipes.
