I eat a lot of chicken.

I like it.

With now being a working Mom and trying to be sure I make healthy meals for my kids and it requires me to plan and have easy weeknight meals ready to go.

Foil packets are one thing that fits that description.I make them the night before, or morning of, place on a cookie sheet or in 13×9 baking dish in the fridge, then I am ready to go and to put them in the oven or on the grill as soon as I come home.
