3-Course Meal Idea: Butternut Soup, Roast Chicken & Sugar-Free Choc Muffins

3 Course Meal Idea

This week, I put together a wonderful 3-course meal idea for you guys! I think it’s a good idea to sometimes up your cooking-game and put a little more effort into dinnertime – even if it’s once a month or so ?

“3 Course” sounds super daunting, right? Like Masterchef vibes…but trust me – it’s a LOT easier than you think. It won’t have you slaving in the kitchen cooking all day long…if you plan properly, that is. I always advise people to make things as easy as possible by choosing food that can be cooked in advance. You’ll be relaxed and unrushed while cooking, which will probably produce better results AND a 3-course meal definitely calls for a special social evening. Even if it’s just you and your significant other…or you and your best friend. If you put some effort into preparing the meal in advance, you will have time to enjoy the evening and relax – which means you’ll probably want to do this type of thing more often.

For Mains: Easiest Honey Glazed Roast Chicken

Roast Chicken is probably your best bet in terms of EASY. I recommend cooking this on the day – but the beauty is that you pretty much just chuck all the ingredients on a roasting pan, pop it in the oven – and forget about it for 1 ½ hours ? To make things even easier, prepare everything before your guest/s arrive so that you can just pop it in the oven when the time is right.

For Dessert: Sugar-Free Chocolate Muffins with Strawberries and Cream

SUGAR-FREE Chocolate Muffins
