Welcome to 2017 piggy peeps! I don't know about you but I am not ready to get back into the swing of things to kick off the New Year. It feels like there are 5 million to-do's on my list and I am barely making a dent in them a few days into the new year... One thing that's falling off my radar? Dinner. I am struggling with pumping out tasty meals without spending wayyyyy too much time on them. Since I have too much to do at work, I am starting to rely on meals of popcorn and soda - NOT how I wanted to start the year.

Instead, I'm pulling out my Pig of the Month BBQ Shredded Chicken and I'm making something more than just a sandwich with it. These flatbreads are one of the easiest meals EVER and there's no one that can resist them, I don't care how picky of an eater they are. The fluffy naan with BBQ sauce, chicken and avocado is the best base for any pizza. Throw in the bite of some red onion and salty cheese and holy wow, this pizza is one the entire family will be begging you to make on a regular basis. Not to mention it's pretty dang healthy in terms of pizza, so you can feel ok about sticking to those New Year resolutions ;)

That's why this Lightened Up Chicken Mac N Cheese is the one dinner you have to add to your winter weeknight rotation!

I can honestly admit that my attempts at getting healthy this year are pretty dang lame... I am not the biggest fan of sticking to a strict diet. For obvious reasons I'm sure.

Nope, instead I want to load up on my pork and I GUESS I can load up on some veggies at the same time.

BBQ Chicken & Bacon Guacamole Wraps are here to make all your secret lunch dreams come true... I don't know about you all, but I get SO bored with eating salad and turkey club sandwiches for lunch every day. I can get into a serious rut when it comes to lunch. With all the work piling up, I never have time to really think about what I am eating unless I plan it out ahead of time.

BBQ Chicken & Bacon Guacamole Wraps | Sauce + Style

Planning ahead is not necessarily my strong suit. As much as I would love to craft a gorgeous lunch every day, I need something that's ready to just dive into on the spot when my stomach starts rumbling. That's why this wrap is SO perfect. It's easy to make ahead of time (heck, you could even make it the night before) and it'll disappear in about 2.5 seconds. Surprised?

BBQ Chicken & Bacon Guacamole Wraps | Sauce + Style

It's stuffed with BBQ-sauced chicken, guacamole and BACON so I'm not sure why you would be! It's better than any sandwich you'll ever grab at that sad little shop on the corner. Plus it even has some lettuce in there to make you feel even healthier as you wipe the BBQ sauce from your chin.

Bacon-Wrapped Caprese Stuffed Chicken | Sauce + Style

Weeknight meals can get really boring, am I right? I mean, there's only so many times you can cook a plain ol' chicken breast, match it up with some veggies and not get bored to tears. Sometimes you need to shake things up during the week, but you don't have time to master an insane recipe. Enter Bacon-Wrapped Caprese Stuffed Chicken.

Bacon-Wrapped Caprese Stuffed Chicken | Sauce + Style

These chicken breasts are going to seriously wow your family and I bet you already have most of these ingredients in your home (or even growing in your backyard for you herb and veggie growers out there!). All you have to do is stuff your chicken breasts with those classic caprese salad ingredients, wrap them in bacon and boom. Dinner is done in less than 30 minutes and your satisfying everyone at the table. I LOVE caprese salads - the mozzarella, the tomato, the basil - it all screams freshness and summer to me with every bite. Chicken lends itself so well to this combo so it only makes sense to stuff everything INSIDE the chicken breast. That combined with the bacon-wrapped exterior leaves you with one of the moistest pieces of chicken you'll ever dig into.

Bacon-Wrapped Caprese Stuffed Chicken | Sauce + Style

Wrap each chicken breast with two slices of bacon, making sure the edges of the bacon overlap all on the same side of the breast. Heat olive oil in a large oven safe skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken breasts for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, making sure to rotate to get it seared on all four sides. Place skillet in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Serve immediately.

Pulled Pork Mac n Cheese Grilled Cheese | Sauce + Style

Hey food porn fans... I've got something extra special for you today... It's hot and crispy straight out of the waffle iron, stuffed with saucy pulled pork and so cheesy your head might explode. It's basically a giant mess of a sandwich, carefully contained in a pocket of waffle ironed bread.

Pulled Pork Mac n Cheese Grilled Cheese | Sauce + Style

This is seriously going to become your new favorite way to make grilled cheese sandwiches, period. The waffle iron crisps up the bread in a way that cooking it over the stove just doesn't do. It's like your own personal panini press, with more than one function in the kitchen! You just pinch down those edges and it forms a pocket of deliciousness.

Pulled Pork Mac n Cheese Grilled Cheese | Sauce + Style

When you open up this bad boy, all that pork, mac n cheese and cheddar comes oozing out in the most luscious way. You might have to stop and just stare at it before shoveling it in your mouth in one giant bite. Might have to stop. But we know you definitely won't delay the goodness, right?

Finish with the other slice of bread. Repeat with the second sandwich. When the waffle iron is hot, cook one sandwich at a time. Place the sandwich in the center and press down firmly. You may have to hold the waffle iron down as it will not close completely.

When the cheese is melted, approximately 1 to 2 minutes, remove sandwich from the waffle iron. Repeat with the other sandwich. Serve immediately.
