Eat at Home Challenge: Chicken & Broccoli “Stir Fry” in the Slow Cooker (Day 2)

Welcome to Day 2 of the — a one-week challenge designed to encourage and inspire you to make more meals at home in order to save money and eat more healthfully!

I’m following the  and just love it so much!

Details on The Eat at Home Challenge

The Eat at Home Challenge is this week and runs through August 18, 2017. Every morning around 7 a.m. CT, prepping our dinner to throw in the slow cooker for the day so that when 6 p.m. rolls around dinner is READY!

Every day, in addition to on my Facebook Page, I’ll be posting here on the blog what I made that day, along with a link to my video (in case you missed it).

I’m using the for my recipes for this challenge. You can sign up and get the recipes if you’d like to follow along with me! Scroll down to the bottom of this post for all the details on this menu-planning service + a 25% off coupon code good this weekend only!

My hope is that this will inspire you with some new recipe ideas, encourage you to not wait until the last minute to think about what you’re having for dinner, and motivate you to eat at home more (even on busy nights!) so you can save money.

I’d love for you to join me in this challenge! To participate, so you can share what you are making every night and see what readers all over the country (and world!) are making for dinner each night, too!

What I Made Today

This morning, I made Chicken & Broccoli “Stir Fry” in my Slow Cooker! It was SO, SO easy and I think it’s going to be really yummy! I’m going to make some Brown Rice in the Instant Pot to go along with it.

What is the Eat at Home Menu-Planning Service?

I’m using the for my recipes for this challenge. I love this menu-planning service and highly recommend it — especially if you struggle to come up with the time and inspiration to make your own menus.

is a menu-planning service designed to make getting dinner on the table much easier every night. It was a service created by Tiffany, a mom of 4 who loves to cook and loves to gather her family around the table, but has found that if she doesn’t have a quick and easy plan, it’s hard to make that happen.

How Does the Eat at Home Menu-Planning Service Work?

The is an incredible way to help you save time and save money. You don’t have to worry about planning menus OR grocery list, because Tiffany does all of that for you as part of the menu-planning service.

She has designed it specifically with busy families in mind and the menu plans offer:

  • Quick to fix meals (even as fast as 15 minutes to the table!)
  • Lots of slow cooker recipes

The recipes can all be fixed quickly, with only a few minutes of hands-on prep. Because the recipes use common pantry ingredients, it’s likely that you have everything you need to make many of the recipes.

It’s so convenient because all the work is done for you! You just choose which menu plan you’ll use, print the grocery list, go shopping, and then spend a few minutes prepping food each day and dinner is D-O-N-E!

When you (it’s just a few dollars per week — or less!), each month, you’ll get:

  • An entire month of Traditional Menu Plans, including weekly grocery lists and printable recipe instructions
  • An entire month of Slow Cooker Menu Plans, including weekly grocery lists and printable recipe instructions
  • An entire month of Whole Food Menu Plans, including weekly grocery lists and printable recipe instructions
  • Each menu plan comes with recipes created for small family (3-4 servings) and large family (6-8 servings)
  • Color-coded grocery lists make it easy to swap out ingredients or whole meals
  • Printable Menus to hang on the fridge or near your calendar, so you can easily see what’s for dinner that week and your family can too
  • Access to the entire month at once!
  • 1 Hour Freezer Stash Plans – a new plan each month to stock your freezer with 6 meals in 1 hour!

You can choose to stick with just the traditional menu plan or just the slow cooker menu plan or just the whole foods menu plan. Or, you can rotate different menu plans on different weeks, depending upon what you feel like cooking or how much time you have!

If you struggle to make menu plans and would love for someone to make them for you + make a grocery list for you, it’s well worth spending a few dollars every week to let do the work for you.

    I just watched the video and that does sound delicious! I wonder if low sodium soy sauce would work for those, like me, concerned with sodium content? The meal plan service sounds wonderful and if it were in my budget (I have put myself on a bit of a money diet recently), that would be a done deal. Enjoy the meal, I can’t wait to hear how you liked it!~TJ

    • Deb says:

      I have bought the Aldi stir fry sauce several times and it is NOT the same as plain soy sauce. Here is a recipe for a homemade teriyaki sauce that uses low sodium soy sauce. Just the use the ingredients under “for the teriyaki chicken” from cornstarch through honey. Hope that helps.

    hi Crystal! Enjoying these posts the past few days. Just wondering if you are eating these meals with your family or if you are still working with the nutritionist. Was wondering how it would work out to cook a meal for my family separate from a meal for myself. Thanks!

  • Jennifer says:

    Sorry, don’t have Facebook, but tonight we had: grilled steak, sweet potatoes , salad
    Kids had a frozen pizza (their choice, they do not like steak)

  • says:

    Today I made my husband’s food in the thermal cooker again so that he could enjoy a hot meal at work.

    In addition, I made a gluten free, dairy free, and sugar free dessert for him from buckwheat flour. I tried some too, and it was delicious! This time I added baking powder to it, and it was much fluffier and not so hard. 🙂 Who said desserts have to be unhealthy? 🙂

  • Ann says:

    I signed up for the meal plans! I’m excited to give this a try. I signed up for the 3 month plan. Thanks for the discount code.

  • Mallerlyn says:

    Hi Crystal, I’ve been so busy lately that i did not get a chance to go on your blog yesterday and missed the discount code. I really want to try the service, need all the help i can get. When will you be releasing another discount code?
    Thanks for all you do. It has helped me a lot in many areas of my life 🙂

    Slow cooker stir fry? That sounds so convenient! I’ve been hating turning on my oven every night, so I think I might use these leftover sweet potatoes and “bake” them in my slow cooker. =)
