We are t-minus one week from the start of another school year. It’s honestly hard to believe. And, with the new school year in sight, I’m trying my best to come up with new, quick and easy recipes for busy weeknights. One of our favorite new recipes in our dinner rotation is this weeknight air fryer foil pack Italian chicken recipe!
What you’ll need for this recipe
Because this is a weeknight recipe, it’s short on two things: ingredients and time!
- Chicken Breasts (one pound, cubed)
- Italian Seasoning
- Your choice of frozen vegetables
- Cooking Spray
- a few pinches of salt
- and your air fryer! (PS. If you don’t have one, this is the one I use!)
That’s all! If you’re looking for other quick recipes, check this out here!
Why cooking on a weeknight is important
The one constant in my life growing up was dinnertime. For four out of 5 weeknights, my mom made a home cooked meal. Every night, when we would sit down for dinner, we would connect, chat, and enjoy our food. I’d like to think that I am striving to do the same; but, in reality, I’m struggling.
That connection over mealtime is so important for every family. So what makes it easier? Easy weeknight meals. Take the guesswork out of dinner and spend time where it really matters — connecting with your family!
