All dishes can be pre-cooked and frozen, or you can cook each day separately. Incredibly tender chicken and piquant chicken legs, divinely fragrant pork shoulder, awesome hake with carrots and onions, spicy potatoes with mushrooms - this is something. Everything is prepared very, very simple, and the taste is excellent! In addition, they look bright and original.
I would be very glad if this menu is useful to you for a week and you try to cook such a treat in your kitchen. And you and your loved ones will be very, very tasty! Since there are five working days in a week, our menu consists of five incredibly delicious second courses. First of all, I want to offer you the idea of an amazing dinner, which is suitable for the first working day - Monday.
Tender chicken in breadcrumbs looks very appetizing, and the taste is simply divine.
onions (small size) - 1 piece; breadcrumbs (very good to use homemade!) - 100 grams; sunflower oil - 2-3 tablespoons; chicken breast - 2 pieces (by the number of people on whom dinner is cooked); rice - 150 grams; salt, black pepper, Italian herbs.
Tender chicken in breadcrumbs. Step by step recipe:
Peel onions. Cut the peeled onions into large cubes with a knife. Pour one tablespoon of sunflower oil into a heated pan. Transfer the chopped onion to the pan and fry it until light golden color. Chicken breast cut into long strips. It is not worth chopping the chicken very finely, otherwise it will be dry. We send rice to a separate container (we will use raw rice!). I use steamed rice, but you can use ordinary. Slightly golden onions, along with the butter on which it was fried, are sent to a container for rice. Mix everything well, salt to taste and mix again. The resulting blank from rice is transferred to a plastic container and covered with a lid. Pre-chopped meat, salt to taste, add spices (spices can be used those that you prefer) and mix well. Pour the sunflower oil into the breadcrumbs and mix thoroughly. The oil is absorbed into crackers and gruel is obtained. It should not be dry, but should stick to the meat. We take one piece of meat, dip it in breadcrumbs and squeeze it so that breadcrumbs cover meat abundantly. With the remaining meat, we do the same.
We put the meat in breadcrumbs in a row in a separate plastic dish and cover the container with a lid. We prepare the evening meal for the first working day in the freezer. When you want to cook this delicacy, remove the boxes from the freezer, spread the meat on a baking sheet covered with parchment, sprinkle the meat on top with vegetable oil and put in the oven preheated to 180 degrees for 20 minutes. I defrost steamed rice and cook it in a slow cooker.
The amount of ingredients is designed for cooking dinner for two people.

Chicken legs in spicy sauce. Step by step recipe:
To cook this dinner, I often use chicken legs, and chicken wings are ideal. First of all, let's cook marinade for chicken. Break eggs into a separate bowl and shake them with a whisk or fork. In a bowl of beaten eggs, add soy sauce, wine and mix well. In the resulting marinade we shift the legs and leave in the marinade for 15-30 minutes. Then we shift the legs to the vessel, pour the marinade, cover the container with a lid and send the workpiece to the freezer.
In order to spend as little time as possible after the working day in the kitchen, we also prepare the sauce in advance. We will need a separate small container, which tightly tightens the lid. In the prepared container we send sugar, soy sauce, wine vinegar, hot ketchup and mix. Close the lid tightly and send to the freezer Now prepare the second version of the sauce for chicken legs. Finely chop the pickled ginger, green onions and one hard-boiled chicken egg. We shift everything into a separate small dish, add mayonnaise, pepper, greens (you can use any) and mix well. The container is tightly closed with a lid and also sent to the freezer.
Before you cook the legs, defrost them. Combine flour and starch and mix. Add a little salt and mix again. The breading is ready. In the prepared mixture, bread the legs, lay them in the deep fat fryer and lower them into the multicooker. We cook on the “multi-cook” mode at a temperature of 160 degrees 15 minutes. And you can fry in a skillet in oil. Add pre-thawed sauces to the cooked legs and serve beautifully. The supper is ready!

Cut the prepared meat into small pieces (salt and pepper meat is not necessary!). Pour the sunflower oil into the pan and set it on fire to heat the pan. Transfer the meat to a preheated pan and fry it until golden brown. The fire on which I fry the meat is slightly less than average. Cream is sent in a separate container, add salt, sugar, mustard, pepper and Italian herbs to taste. We mix everything. The meat dressing is ready. Now let's cook vegetables for dinner. I wash the eggplants well and cut them into large cubes. Instead of eggplant, you can use zucchini, but zucchini is undesirable because they produce a lot of juice. Next, we need a plastic suitcase with a lid, we shift the chopped eggplant into it. We cut the onion in half rings, and cut the remaining vegetables (pepper and tomato) in the same way as the eggplant in large pieces. All vegetables are sent to the eggplant container and add salt to taste. We put the meat on the vegetables (during frying the meat will let the juice out, we also pour it into the pan), and fill the entire contents of the pan with the dressing. We close the container with a lid and send it to the freezer. Before cooking a pork shoulder, you need to defrost it. Pour a little vegetable oil to the bottom of the deck, turn the contents of the dish over there (the meat should be on the bottom, and the vegetables on top), cover with a lid (can be foil), and cook at a temperature of 180 degrees in the oven for 40 minutes.
