You've had a full day at work and you're rushing to pick up the kids. Now, you've got to get dinner on the table. It's tempting to pop a frozen pizza into the oven, but you can do much better than that.
With a little bit of planning, you can make nutritious weeknight dinners for your family without taking too much time and spending a lot of money on ingredients.

Prefer chicken? Here's a new twist on tacos, courtesy of the American Heart Association. You'll need skinless chicken breasts, red, yellow and orange peppers, and a couple of whole-wheat or corn tortillas. These baked chicken and sautéed pepper tacos are sure to become a family favorite.
Start by seasoning skinless, all-natural chicken breasts with salt and pepper, searing both sides, then bake for 30 minutes.
While the meat is cooking, sauté yellow, red and orange peppers in a splash of extra-virgin olive oil and minced garlic and warm a few whole-wheat or corn tortillas. Add the chicken and peppers to your tortillas, wrap them up and top it off with a little bit of Greek yogurt.
