Feedfeed Tip Be sure to let your spices bloom in the oil to maximize the flavor.
BBQ Chicken with Rice and Mango Salsa by @wellnesswithcourtnie

Weeknight chicken meets tropical vacation by way of this bright and vibrant mango salsa.  While you are grilling the chicken breast, grill up the remaining two you purchased, sans BBQ sauce (it will give you a big leg up tomorrow).

Feedfeed Tip  Be sure to plan ahead and marinate your chicken at least four hours in advance of cooking. Better yet, get it all set up Sunday so meal time is that much easier come Monday.
 
 
 
Chicken Gnocchi Soup by @dianemorrisey

Lean on store bought potato gnocchi and this riff on a comfort-food classic comes together in a snap, and if you grilled your chicken last night you are that much closer to digging in!

Feedfeed Tip When cooking lentils be sure to salt them at the end of the cooking process. Salting them too early can prevent them from softening.
 
Green Cauliflower Shakshuka by @bitesbymi

Green eggs, no ham. However, we wouldn't hate a side of bacon with these beauties! If you have leftover green harissa from last night, feel free to add it to this shakshuka for a nice kick.
