Weeknight Chicken Pot Pie

Meal #1: Weeknight Chicken Pot Pie

This yummy 5-ingredient meal comes together easily and is the definition of comfort food. I have used a rotisserie chicken for convenience in this meal and the white bean chili featured below.

Meal #2: Potato & Sausage One Skillet Dinner

This potato and sausage one skillet meal can easily be adapted to use whatever type of potato and veggie combo your family enjoys.

 Meal #3: White Bean Chicken Chili

This delicious chili is perfect for cold weather, is full of flavor and can be compiled for an easy one pot meal or a convenient slow cooker meal.

Sloppy Joes Hip2Save

Meal #4: Sloppy Joes

You won’t need a packet seasoning with this yummy and crowd pleasing homemade Sloppy Joe recipe.

Easy French Onion Soup Recipe Hip2Save

Meal #5: French Onion Soup

French onion soup can easily be made at home and tastes like the same soup you’d find in a fancy restaurant.

  2. thewlexpert

    This is a WONDERFUL idea! I wonder if there are more! I could use a few weeks of this sort of planning!

    • Merissa

      If you go to the six sisters stuff website, they have weekly meal plans available 🙂

    • theladyprefers2review

      I post weekly meal plans, menus, and recipes; I try to get my entire weekly food budget for four, under $25.00!

      • Misty Nicole Roberts

        On my main blog, The LadyPrefers2Save.

        • ihearthip

          I checked both sites. There are no links to the meal plans so kind of hard to find. I scrolled thru posts but never found. Am I missing something?

    Not to be “DebbieDowner” or anything, but in the top 3 photos, the food looks like it has seen better days. Ick.

    • Susan

      I think it looks fantastic! YUMMY!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh ha! Well, it’s hard to make sloppy joes glamorous, but everything in here tastes great!

    • meg

      If that’s what you think then just keep it to yourself. Your not a Debbie downer…your just rude.

      • Sandy

        Nope, just giving my opinion.

    • Rebe

      What? Ha, some people write the weirdest comments sometimes! Lina, it look delicious and thank you for such a wonderful idea!

  12. amyr

    Great ideas!!! Thanks!

  13. Dja

    Mm mm love white chicken chili! I make it almost every night following rotisserie chicken night when I have leftovers. To make it even easier I swap most of the seasonings for salsa verde since it has onion, garlic, lime, jalapeño, etc already. So it’s just chicken, beans, chicken broth + water, salsa verde and some extra cumin. So easy and so good!! I like to top it with avocado, cheese, sour cream and crushed tortilla chips or whatever combo of that I have on hand.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I know it’s awesome and easy!

  14. ihearthip

    Thank you Lina! This is like a sweet early Christmas gift. Much appreciated.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      You’re welcome, thanks for reading!

  15. ASHLEY

    Stupid question, but do you drain the beans for the chicken chili?!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I think thats personal preference, but i don’t. If you do, you could just add more broth 🙂 thanks!

      • ASHLEY

        Thank you!! I did not drain and it turned out perfect! 😊

  16. Ashley

    So excited to try this out next week, first “meal plan” I’ve ever used. Would love to see this as a regular post on this website. Dishes look delicious!!
