Busy Family Meal Ideas
Here I am again talking about how busy our family is. As much as I think we will eventually have some down time, the reality is we will not. When our family has a wide open day we fill it up with activities. That might be more because my daughters know I’ll ask for help with laundry on days we don’t have anything major on the calendar or it might truly be because we all thrive with a busy schedule. My oldest daughter has incredible time management skills and juggles more than a handful of big responsibilities well. The one area I vowed to improve on was family mealtime. Sure, I could get us all down to the kitchen table together but that didn’t mean someone had magically prepared a home cooked meal. Michael Angelo’s White Wine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter from Walmart makes it easy to add fresh veggies and pasta to a quick to prepare meal our entire family can enjoy together.
I’ve been talking about it for years but for me, having the right ingredients for easy meal ideas is how I keep my family eating home cooked meals at our dinner table during our busy weeknight schedule. Instead of shopping for a lot of grocery items at one time, I generally visit the store a few times a week to pick up fresh ingredients. I also don’t buy fresh fruit in veggies in large quantities because my girls tend to forget what we have and it goes bad before it’s eaten. Michael Angelo’s Meal Starters in my freezer at home is a great way to guarantee we always have a busy family meal idea.

My oldest daughter loves pasta and our youngest would eat broccoli for every meal if we let her. Unfortunately neither like pasta and broccoli together. I’ve tried cleverly disguising both ingredients by adding other favorites to the same dish but it inevitably ends with complaints. The White Wine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter lets you add whatever is desired, including pasta and veggies separately for your children that don’t care for the same meal.
White Wine Lemon Chicken with Veggies
- Michael Angelo’s White Whine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter
- Favorite vegetables
- Optional: prepared pasta
Prepare White Wine Lemon Chicken Meal Starter as advised on packaging instructions. This can be done in the microwave or oven. When the meal starter is done, transfer to a skillet and toss in your family’s favorite veggies and pasta if desired. Cover and cook on low until veggies are soft. Stir and serve! Dinner couldn’t be easier.
There are no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners and these meals are inspired by Italian traditions. Some of our favorite family traditions began at the dinner table so it’s nice to bring us all together for a meal during the week.
And on the days our entire family is home, the single serve Michael Angelo’s meals are perfect between conference calls and work meetings. My husband has been a fan of the Michael Angelo’s Eggplant Parmigiana since before we met. The premium, slowly crafted authentic Italian meals have simple, clear and transparent labeling providing you an honest look at what you are feeding your family.
Pair the white wine lemon chicken or the individual entrees with garlic bread for a quick complete meal. The homemade taste in every bite will have your family wondering when you found the time to cook all day. Shhhhh, I won’t tell if you don’t.
