A 7 Day Meal Plan That Starts With a Roast Chicken

Roast a whole chicken on Sunday (or grab a rotisserie chicken from the store) and use the meat in this week's dinners. This recipe yields about 12 cups of cooked chicken, so there will be plenty for three nights of leftovers.

Thursday: Chicken and Spinach Pasta Salad

My family loves pasta salads, but usually they have too much mayonnaise or oily dressing. Using hummus gives this dish a great taste and texture, while also increasing its nutritional profile. Adding chicken (store-bought rotisserie chicken works well), makes this pasta salad a complete meal. —Jenny Lynch, Rock Island, Illinois
