Between late night working, picking up the kids and your never-ending to-do list, dinner time isn't always a priority. 

Two things we suggest? First, try to plan menu items for the week ahead on Saturday or Sunday, when you have a little time to think. Second, go shopping for dinner items once a week and prep as much as you can ahead of time to reduce stress during the week. 

Just a little planning ahead can make your life a little easier, your family's bellies a little happier and your stress levels a little lower. Here are 6 easy chicken recipes to plan this week.
