Weekly Meals 02/04

This week I prepared another batch of  chicken breasts in the oven, used a cast iron dutch oven to slow cook a chuck roast with wild rice and prepared batch of ground turkey with ground lamb some something different. Since I fixed several large batches over the last two weeks I don't have to cook this week! Which is a nice time saver and money saver.

Meat (Protein): Reduced Fat Ground Turkey, Ground Lamb, Chicken Breast, Chuck Beef Roast  
Veggies (Slow Burn Carbs, Fiber): Yellow Onion, Viggie Mix, Tomatoes, Green Chili's
Wild rice Mix ( Fast Carbs), Organic Whole Grain Wheat Pasta (Fast Carbs)

The Chicken 
My main staple is Chicken if you have not figure that out yet it is.  . I prepare the chicken on a flat baking Sheet with foil on the bottom for easy clean up. I Sprinkle them with Goya Adobo All Purpose Seasoning then into a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Out of the 6 chicken breasts I cooked in the oven I was able to get 8 servings and a little bit extra that the cat enjoyed for a snack. I Cut the Chicken breasts in half then cut into finger width pieces to make it easy to fit in to contains and bit size able. 

The Pasta
I came up with this option as after the last two weeks of rice I wanted something different and tasty.
Veggie mix (1can) , chili ready tomatoes (1 can), kidneys beans (1 can), green chili's (1 small can), 1 box organic whole grain pasta, cup chicken stock, small jar organic pasta sauce. Started off cooking the Pasta to just shy of al dente. Drained part of the water till I had about a cup of pasta water remaining. Then added in the other ingredients into the pot. Mixed it well and that was it. I didn't need to keep it any further as it's all going to be divided and microwaved which will finish the cooking process. This actually came out far better than I had expected the Kidney beans go well with the veggie mix and pasta sauce I used. 

The Beef Chuck Roast
On a off take of my favorite Pork Chop and wild rice recipe of my mom's I used a Chuck Roast instead. It's not as good but it is satisfying. Here I used 2 Cup wild rice mix, 2 medium yellow onions, garlic powder, Dry chives,  1 can mushroom soup, 1 can celery soup. I put all of this into a Cast Iron Dutch Oven and slow cooked it at 300 for 2 hours. This yielded a Roast that is tinder and yummy rice that goes well with lots of different things.   I pulled out the Chuck Roast and Cut it separate from the wild rice to remove any additional fat that didn't get removed before cooking. I wanted some fat to flavor the dish. But I do not want that is left on the meat. What was left is measured into servings and put into containers.
