Meal Plan Day

We've been slacking on our meal planning lately. Hoping to get back on track, here's our meal plan for the next week and a half:

Wednesday: Fend for yourself night (I will be out)
Thursday: Homemade pizza and breadsticks. I think we will try grilled pizza. Or maybe do potato pizza again.
Friday: Salsa chicken (this was a huge hit last time)
Saturday: Simsbury chicken

Sunday: Black bean burgers and sweet potato fries
Monday: Crockpot ravioli and salad
Tuesday: Basil Chicken Pasta (unsure on sides)
Wednesday: Chicken with cherry tomatoes, basil and olives
Thursday: Chicken enchiladas and sweet corn cake
Friday: Chicken salad on croissants with glazed carrots
Saturday: Leftovers

Here's the new recipe we're trying this time. I will post back if it is a hit.

Chicken With Cherry tomatoes, Basil and Olives
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
12 kalamata olives, chopped and pitted
Goat cheese (to sprinkle on top)
Orzo (to serve over)

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle the chicken with black pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Add oil to pan. Add chicken; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. While chicken cooks, combine tomatoes and remaining ingredients. Serve over chicken. Sprinkle with goat cheese and serve over orzo.
