Grilled Greek Marinated Chicken, Yellow Cheddar Squash Casserole & Easy Coleslaw

This evening dinner was super quick and easy to put on the table. Yesterday, both of my sons came for dinner and we had plenty of leftovers to enjoy again this evening. Since I didn't take a photo of my plate last night, I snapped a quick photo of tonight's plate. I enjoyed it as much, if not more, than I did last night.

Since I didn't have a lot of time to prep last night's meal yesterday, I marinated chicken cutlets instead of whole breasts so they would marinate more quickly. I marinated thinly sliced chicken cutlets for about 2-1/2 hours in a mixture of olive oil, the juice of 2 large lemons and about 1 tablespoon of Greek Seasoning (by Penzey's) and a pinch of sea salt. Since they are so thin, they not only marinate and become tender more quickly but they only take about 6 minutes or so to cook (and since it was so hot here yesterday, it was a blessing not having to stand outside for long to cook them).

For our side dishes, I made my favorite Yellow Cheddar Squash Casserole. I absolutely love it and so does the rest of my family. I use blanched almond flour, butter, eggs and milk in place of the 52 Ritz Crackers that used to go into the original version I used to make. I also made my Easy Coleslaw as our other side dish. It was a meal that screamed summertime. We enjoyed a complete repeat of this meal tonight and it was so good. For dessert last night I served the Chocolate Zucchini Walnut Cake I made over the weekend and both of my sons absolutely loved it. One of them actually had 2 pieces BEFORE dinner and somehow they both still managed to be able to eat second helpings of dinner, too. It was a perfect summertime Sunday night dinner using retooled versions of some of our old favorite recipes. I snapped a quick photo of my plate this evening which looks almost the same as last night's plate (except I added a sliced Campari tomato this evening).
