"I love this dish for a one-pot weeknight meal. Everything from the chicken to the vegetables and potatoes goes in the same pot, making cleanup a breeze."

"Skirt steak is a quick and easy weeknight protein that I particularly like in fajitas or tacos. I like to serve these tacos alongside my Roasted Peanut Slaw."

"One of my favorite kitchen tools for pulling off successful weeknight meals is my slow cooker. With this recipe, you can pop the turkey breast into the slow cooker in the morning before heading off to work, making dinner prep quick and painless. I like serving these hearty sandwiches alongside a green vegetable like my Haricot Verts Almondine or a fresh summer salad like my Peach Salad with Tomatoes, Feta, and Basil Vinaigrette."
