Why do moms need meal starters?
We are a family of four. Myself, my husband, my daughter who is 5 and son who is 3. We are super active! We have a lot of evening activities that fill up our week: church, ballet, soccer, yoga. On the weekends we are always looking for a new hike or destination ro travel to! I am always looking for a quick and delicious #momhack for dinner! At the end of an exhausting day of homeschooling and blogging I just want to get food out on the table without a huge production or 20 ingredients!
Fall and Winter seem to be our busiest time because on top of the family activities, we also have the holidays. Thankfully, I found Michael Angelos frozen meals and meal starters in the frozen section of Walmart. I read the box and saw that this brand is the real deal! I can pronounce every ingredient, they don’t use artificial preservatives or flavors, and it takes homemade! Shhhh, hide the box and your family won’t know the difference. Wink wink!
All of Michael Angelo’s frozen meals are yummy authentic Italian style recipes. They have tons of options between small dishes or family size meals. My favorites are the White Wine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter and the Lasagna with meat sauce. The lasagna is a nice appetizer or pre/post sports activity snack. It’s just the right size for my kids to split and mommy to have a few bites.
But the White Wine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter is my number 1! I like to serve it over rice, pasta or (the best combo and my personal favorite) over a baked sweet potato. We are huge sweet potato fans in this house. They are full of vitamins and fiber. There’s also something in the Lemon chicken, maybe it’s the fresh capers, that pairs perfectly with the taste of a sweet potato. I usually bake sweet potatoes on Sunday and have them for the rest of the week. Here is my super quick and easy family dinner with the delectable Michael Angelo’s White Wine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter. It’s super simple, I promise.
- 1 box of Michael Angelo’s White Wine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter
- 2-4 sweet potatoes (1 for each person)
- 2 tbsp of olive oil
- 2 tsp of salt and pepper
- extra capers for garnish (totally optional, I just really like capers.)
Tools: Oven, Microwave, Baking sheet.
Pre-heat or turn on oven to 425.
Remove the Michael Angelo’s White Wine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter rom the box. Place in microwave for 11-12 minutes and let it sit for 4 mins (Follow the instructions on the box for best results).
Wash your sweet potato and pat dry. Prick your sweet potatoes each 2-3 time with a fork. Drizzle each sweet potato with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on a cookie sheet. Then place it directly on the oven rack in the middle of the oven. Turn the oven on to 425. Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the potato.
Place each potato on an individual plate. Make a slit with with a knife at the top of each sweet potato. Pull apart and fluff the potato meat with a fork. Remove the plastic film from the Michael Angelos White Wine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter. Take a piece of chicken and place it on each sweet potato. Take a big spoon and ladle out the delicious white wine sauce with carrots, spinach and capers – pour generously over the chicken and sweet potato. Add a few extra capers for garnish if you are obsessed with capers and have an extra jar always in the fridge! Serve and enjoy more time with your family and less time working in the kitchen. Work smarter not harder, am I right?
