I made Coriander Chicken Thighs today and modified the recipe to do on the grill. I cooked them ahead of time as we have too much going on tonight and I wanted to make sure we would still have a good dinner. I will put some rice in the rice maker and saute come cabbage right before sitting down and we will have a meal in no time!
Take advantage of the time you have even if it is not right before dinner time as many things can be made ahead and rewarmed or served room temp. A family meal is worth the bit of effort you need to put in to plan ahead.
