As a soon to be mom of two, a wife, a full time teacher, and a TpT seller, I am a busy lady!  As many of you can attest, it's hard to keep up with life, cleaning, cooking, etc.  My mom was always one of those super moms who cooked every meal, always had the house clean and laundry done, and still managed to do everything else on her plate.  I struggle with these tasks daily, but one thing I strive to do is have home cooked, family meals at least 3 times a week.  In order to do this, I search high and low to find quick, easy, tasty recipes to serve each week.

Because I know there are so many of you out there like me, I wanted to share my recipes on my blog for you to try as well!

Grilled Chicken with Broccoli Baked Potatoes
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

Microwave Baked Potatoes (Buy one for each family member, I buy the 7 minute potatoes...very yummy)
Cheese (any kind you like, velveeta/cheez wiz/grated cheese)
Salt and Pepper to taste
2-3 Broccoli Crowns
1 to 2 tbs of butter
1/2 cup water
Chicken breasts (one per family member)
Mason Jar (poke holes in the lid)
BBQ Sauce of your choice

To season the chicken breasts while grilling them, I mix together the following:  1/2 cup of vinegar, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 to 1 tsp salt.  Mix those three ingredients together in the mason jar.

 Sprinkle this mixture on the chicken while it is grilling.  Do this several times.

I cut my broccoli crowns and throw them in a pot along with 1 to 2 tbs of butter and about 1/2 cup of water.  I steam my broccoli, covered, until tender but not wilted.  Stir often.

While my broccoli is cooking, I pop in the microwavable potatoes.  Read the directions on the potatoes.  They usually take 7 minutes a piece, though you can cook them together at once.

After my broccoli and potatoes were cooked, I dressed my potato the way I like it--a little butter, salt, pepper, broccoli, and cheese.  I added my chicken and baked potato to my plate, and finished my chicken off with yummy, tangy BBQ sauce (Johnny Harris brand).

My hubby preferred to eat his broccoli separate from his potato.  That just goes to show you how flexible this meal is!  Very yummy, and only took about 30 minutes to prepare!  Enjoy!
