I try to meal plan I really do, but some weeks go better than others.  Okay, okay if I’m going to be honest, most weeks I start and my meal planning maybe gets up to Wednesday if I’m really lucky Thursday.  That leaves for a lot of unplanned meals in a week.  Having my pantry and freezer stocked with items from Sam’s Club helps.

If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you’ll know that when it comes to food, I like easy.  That doesn’t mean I want to sacrifice taste, it just means I like short cuts.  Using some prepared items will often cut down on prep time, so when I don’t have a meal plan I can still get a tasty, satisfying meal on the table in less than 30 minutes.

You know what else I like?  Demos at Sam’s Club.  It’s a great way to try products I’ve never purchased before and for getting ideas on quick, easy meals for my family.  Being able to taste food items before you buy it in bulk allows us to save money by not purchasing it if we don’t like it, but also lets us find new favorites that we possibly would never have bought had we not tried it.

I’m always on the lookout for things that make my life simpler and allow us to stretch our dollar just a bit more.  (Here’s a little PSA if you’ve never noticed before, when Sam’s is clearing something out the price ends in 1¢.  If it’s something you like be sure to snag as much as you want because chances are you won’t find it on your next shopping trip!)

So this past week as part of a #cbias campaign we headed out to Sam’s Club and I bought a few things to have in the pantry and freezer so that I could whip up a Quick ‘N’ Easy Chicken Parmesan Recipe.  The items were, a 3lb bag of Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips, a case of Hunts’s Tomato Sauce and a 6 lb box of Daily Chef Spaghetti.  Then I also used some Parmesan and mozzarella cheese I already had at home.

8 Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips
1 3/4 cups of Hunt’s Tomato Sauce (divided into 1 cup and 3/4 cup portions)
1/2 cup of shredded Mozarella Cheese
1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan Cheese
12 oz. of dry Daily Chef Spaghetti, and then cooked and drained

Prepare the chicken strips according to package directions.  When they are done, top them with 1 cup of tomato sauce, the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses (feel free to use more than the amount listed in the ingredients).  Return to oven until cheeses are bubbling and just starting to turn brown.

Halfway during the baking time of the Chicken Strips, cook the spaghetti, drain.  Heat the 3/4 cup portion of the sauce and add it to the cooked noodles.

Serve the Chicken Parmesan Strips on top of the noodles.
