We often have dinner guests during the week and between work and daycare pick up it can be a challenge. I’ve had to accept that are meals aren’t as elaborate as they used to be but I like them at least look elaborate. This four ingredient meal doesn’t take a lot of work, costs less than $20, and it’s healthy. It takes a little time but no attention.
- Spray a baking sheet with pan and toss in the cut butternut squash and half the bag of shaved Brussels sprouts. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables and bake.
- After 30 minutes toss the vegetables a bit to cover them in the juices and add the rest of the Brussels sprouts.
- After another 30 minutes (chicken in oven for an hour), start the Couscous. Make sure you get the 5 minute box because it is literally boiling water, oil and seasoning packet, removing from heat, adding couscous and putting a lid on the pot for five minutes.
- Check the chicken, depending on the size it may need more time but after an hour it’s usually done.
- Set the table and enjoy!
You’ll should have enough money left in the budget for some two-buck Chuck too! Gotta love Trader Joe’s.
