Spring is in full swing, the days are slowly getting longer and the temps are rising as we inch closer and closer to summer. We start this week off with a light Penne Primavera and then an Italian Fennel Orange Salad on Tuesday. Add salmon, shrimp or chicken to complete the meal as a dinner salad. On Wednesday night build your own chicken sandwiches and if you're feeling up for it prep the chicken pot pie filling with any additional chicken. This week's weekend bonus is a batch of milk chocolate lavender cookies in case you're craving something sweet at the end of the week! 

If you make any of the recipes, snap a photo and tag us #feedfeed @thefeedfeed on Instagram or TikTok for a chance to be featured. Happy cooking!

TUESDAY Italian Fennel Orange Salad
By Tastefully_Grace


The delicate flavor of roasted fennel pairs well with sliced orange and briny green olives, and the color of this green salad is eye-catching. Tossed with a honey dijon vinaigrette, this salad goes well with chicken or flakey white fish, such as cod or tilapia.

WEDNESDAY Chicken Cutlet Sandwiches
By themosthungry

Skip the Italian deli and DIY. This awesome sandwich is packed with a breaded chickencutlet, sauteed broccoli rabe, and finished with some pungent sharp provolone. Traditionally a Philadelphia staple. Sure, you could order at the local bodega or deli, but when you can make it yourself-you have it for days. Remember the proverb give “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. You teach him to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime.” This applies here and you won't regret it.

THURSDAY Easy Chicken Pot Pie
By simplyscrumptiouseats_

One of the most comforting dishes I can think of is the classic chicken pot pie -and thankfully this recipe cuts down on the labor in doing so. Some people think of this as heavy, but it's all about moderation. Pack this baby up with lots of fresh veggies such as carrots, sweet peas, celery, and turnips-it's completely customizable to your preference. Make sure to pair it with a crispy leafed salad for a full balanced meal.

WEEKEND BONUS Milk Chocolate Lavender Cookies
By Cynthia Jordan

Don't be put off by the lavender; it's extremely faint and complements the milk chocolate's sweetness. To keep the cookie from getting too sugary, use a higher percentage of milk chocolate (Trader Joe's brand works great!). You'll have a kitchen that smells like the best candle you didn't know you needed and an elevated take on the classic chocolate chip cookie under your belt.
