Can I say, there are some days when I just don’t have time to cook a huge meal for my family! But I’ve learned if I plan accordingly I can still have a yummy meal and it doesn’t have to be something extravagant or take forever to cook! This Banging Barbecue Chicken and Vegetables is perfect for this situation!
Since my husband is a pastor, he typically has more flexible hours than me so he can usually start a recipe prior to me getting home. My kids also get involved. I have a 35-40 minute drive to and from work each day (homesteading is not my day job) and I use that time wisely. I will occasionally talk with my kids on the phone and walk them through the prep for a recipe so I can start cooking when I get home.
This is one meal that is easy to prepare because all the ingredients are compiled in aluminum foil and bake together. My husband and kids had the meal in the oven and the table set when I got home! Woohoo! Win, win! I didn’t have to cook and I have more time with my family!
The foil packs also make for easy cleanup! Once the cooking is done, the ingredients can be transferred to a plate and the foil can be trashed!
This recipe is one of the recipes in my Meal Planning list and you can definitely tell why!
