Skillet Dishes and Slow Cooker Meal Plan

It’s Monday and whether you’re happy it’s here or you were dreading the beginning of the week, one way to make it a good week is to have a meal plan. If you haven’t made your meal plan yet scroll down for a few easy dinner ideas.

Menu plan with recipe links

This week we are sticking to skillet dishes, slow cooker meals or grilling our dinner. It’s not super hot but hot enough I don’t want to run the oven.

We’ll be using chicken from the freezer for the mushroom chicken skillet, sweet chili chicken bowls, and the Italian chicken.

I’ll also be using ham I tucked away in the freezer a while back for the ham and vegetable fried rice.

My husband requested pita pocket sandwiches. I usually make my own pita pockets but this time I purchased a package from the store. It’s too warm to bake pitas right now.

We’ll also be having breakfast for dinner for an inexpensive and quick dinner one night.

What’s cooking at your house this week?

Here are our Meals for this Week,


This is a simple and easy creamy chicken mushroom recipe. It’s a one pot dish that is great for the summer because you cook it in the skillet. It’s equally delicious served over pasta or rice and it can be made dairy free too.

Mushroom Chicken Skillet with Salad

Italian Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans

Ham and Vegetable Fried Rice, Salad, and Fruit

Pancakes, Eggs, and Sausage

Quick Chicken Parmesan, Salad, and Fruit

Pita Pocket Sandwiches, Chips, and Fruit

Sweet Chili Chicken Bowls with Salad


Leftovers most days

Tuna Sandwiches, Chips, and Fruit

BLT Salad, Crackers, and Fruit


This is an easy and delicious baked donuts recipe. Who wouldn’t love double chocolate donuts that are baked to help keep the fat down? Better yet, these are also dairy free donuts too. You’ll have to see how easy these are to make. If you can measure and stir you can make them too.

Toast with Eggs

Double Chocolate Donuts, Eggs, and Sausage

Waffles, Eggs, and Sausage

  1. Your menu looks so always!

    I made a recipe for beef stroganoff using ground beef this week that was very good. I’ve made it before, but forgot about it until this weekend. We were so glad to have it again.

    Hope you have a great week!
