Reprise of Garlic and Shrimp Pasta and Brussels Sprouts in a Chicken Dinner

It is amazing how last night’s dinner can become tonight’s side dish, isn’t it? My husband and I like to put a little bit of time into planning what we will eat for dinner during the week so that we can enjoy delicious meals without too much hassle. Take for example, sauteed chicken – we like cooking these chicken tenderloins during the week because they are simple and quick. We cook them in a sauté pan over medium heat with extra virgin olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, parsley and Italian seasonings. In about 15 minutes they are ready to serve. The leftover Garlic and Shrimp Pasta and Brussels Sprouts make terrific accompaniments. For the next night’s dinner, pair the leftover chicken with a new side dish – perhaps the Couscous with Cherries and Almonds! The rotating dinner plan is one that works for us and hopefully for you too!
