It’s back to school time and that means busy weeknights.

https://www.averiecooks.com/15-minute-chicken-vegetable-and-ramen-noodle-stir-fry/ Possibly that. Or Google ‘Averie Cooks ramen chicken’ and see if anything else comes up you were thinking of.
hey girl- these all look so yummy!
Thanks and have a great week!
These are great! I can adapt as I need to with my ‘no dairy’ diet. Thanks so much!
Yum! We can always use more quick and easy meal ideas! Pinning this for later!
Fantastic chicken recipes!! I could start at the top of the list and just cook my way down. I think the jerk chicken would be great on the grill while summer is still here–we haven’t had that in quite a while.
That sounds delish on the grill! Glad these look like they could work out for you guys!
