Chef Shelley here. If we’re just meeting for the first time, I’m a Personal Chef and when I’m not cooking for my clients, I’m helping passionate home cooks become Personal Chefs so they can pursue their passion and get paid to cook too!
In this month’s How to Cook Like a Personal Chef I’ve included:
Easy Weeknight Roast Chicken – double duty
Classic Chicken Enchiladas
Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi
The most important thing when preparing to batch cook is choosing the right recipes.
Now is not the time to get all Pinterest crazy and pick five difficult time-consuming dinners that you’ve never made before.
In fact, if you want to keep this as fast as possible, choose dishes you already know and that your family loves.
The speedy strategy this month is using a Double Duty recipe. This month the Easy Weeknight Roast Chicken is also used for Classic Chicken Enchiladas.
- Plan fast: always do your list in order of the store
- Shop Fast: go when the store is empty first thing in the morning
- Cook Fast: start the longest cooking one first and prep while you’re cooking, not all before you start!
Alright, you’re now set with at least three nights worth of delicious dinners for an easy week.
And if this is a cake walk for you, try four or five at one time, or double the entrée size and freeze some.
