More About the Recipes in This Prep Session:

Recipe #1: Slow Cooker Killer Carnitas

In this versatile BIG batch recipe, pork shoulder is slow cooked in a complex, citrus-infused marinade. Then, it’s shredded and broiled until slightly crisp. Enjoy it a la carte, on tacos, or in myriad ways for a delectable Mexican-inspired dinner.

Serving Suggestions: Serve a la carte or in warm corn tortillas. We suggest topping with shredded cabbage, diced avocado, pico de gallo, Cojita or Queso Fresco cheese crumbles, chopped cilantro, and lime wedges.

Mix It Up:

  • Use the meat in burritos, quesadillas, burrito bowls, or on top of nachos or a salad.

    Recipe #2: Italian Baked Chicken Thighs

    Simple enough for a weeknight meal but tasty enough to serve to company. All ages love these well-seasoned, crispy chicken thighs.

    Serving Suggestions: This main dish goes well with sides like baked potatoes, mac & cheese, or green beans. 

    Mix It Up:

    • Make this recipe using drumsticks instead. It should take about the same amount of time to bake, but make sure it reaches 165°F internally (or no longer has any pink inside).

    • Shred the leftovers and use in a wrap or on top of a salad.

      Recipe #3: Chicken Tortellini Soup

      A delightful twist on chicken noodle soup that will bring some serious comfort food to your table without much fuss.

      Serving Suggestions: Top with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley (for color) and serve with crusty bread on the side. Because the pasta soaks up the liquid overnight and expands, you may need to add more broth to leftovers.

      Mix It Up:
      • Instead of using cheese tortellini, stir in another pasta like egg noodles or orzo (and cook in the soup according to package directions).

      • Use boneless, skinless chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts, if you like dark meat.
