Some week night meals can be a real challenge for a busy family like ours. There are nights that my husband comes home late, the kids frequently bring home illnesses from school or to be honest, I just get tired. I still like to have a fresh meal on the table, even if that means it’s a semi-homemade meal. I’ll occasionally turn to the freezer section of the grocery store to help me throw together a complete meal without a lot of time or work involved. One dish our family enjoyed was a simple Chicken Parmigiana dinner complete with Tuscan Steamed Broccoli and Backyard Grilled Potatoes.

A meal like this made from scratch could have taken me over an hour to put together and cook. However, with the help of frozen, fully-cooked chicken strips and Green Giant Steamers side dishes I was able to make this in less than 30 minutes. While the chicken strips baked with a splash of marinara and some mozzarella cheese are delicious, what really made this a fantastic dish was the side dishes. The vegetables are already blended with seasonings that make that far from ordinary tasting. The potatoes were a personal favorite because unlike other frozen potatoes I’ve tried in the past, these are very creamy inside with the perfect amount of seasoning.

  1. I’ll have to definitely look for these. There are nights I just want easy but still provide nutrients to my family.

  2. I have been recently using those vegetable side dishes too. The kids were getting bored of the same veggies every night so these have been a yummy switch.

  3. Not everyone can make a homemade meal every single night of the week, so it’s understandable when people take little ‘shortcuts.’ But hey, at least your shortcuts are on the healthy side which is WAY more than I can say for some people o.O

    I will have to check these out those potatoes look delicious!

  5. These sound delicious. And they look like real food, unlike some frozen foods. Will have to give them a try.

  6. Those potatoes look delish! I love steamer bags too, makes it so much easier when I’m trying to multi-task in the kitchen. :)
