Weeknights Are Easier When BI-LO Cooks

This is a sponsored post in partnership with BI-LO. All opinions are my own.

Raise your hand if you are sick and tired of cooking for what feels like 239 times a week. You can be certain that I have both hands raised! I cannot believe how much more cooking and cleaning many of us have been doing on a daily basis. Some days I am the expert baker and gourmet chef, other days I am ready to quit! Do you feel me? I decided that a couple days a week I will take some shortcuts to get meals on the table without wearing myself out in the process. We all have enough to think about in the current climate we are living in, so why not take a break when you can?

The BI-LO deli is such a great help when you're taking a day off from the kitchen. There are so many main dishes and sides available including: rotisserie chicken, Lip Lickin' chicken, ribs, sandwiches, salads, coleslaw, and so much more. One thing I like is that I can make a complete meal using items from the deli, or add some premade sides to a main entree I plan to cook that day.

One of my family's favorite main dishes is fried chicken. I don't tend to cook it because of the hassle involved. BI-LO's deli makes some of the most delicious fried chicken that is flavorful and has that perfect crunch.

 Look at all of this golden brown deliciousness. They call it Lip Lickin' for a reason!

I like serving fried chicken with sides like potato salad and coleslaw. The combination of the three is perfection! BI-LO has so many to-go sides to choose from. They would go well with any of their rotisserie chickens. Some flavors available are barbecue and lemon pepper. I will be trying some other combinations on the next store trip.

I am a huge fan of sandwiches. I can eat them every day, honestly. My BI-LO deli had turkey, ham, and Italian sandwiches which are made fresh daily. You can always tell by the bread how fresh it is. Believe me, it was just as good as my favorite sub shop sandwich bread. You can't go wrong with a tasty sandwich, chips and a glass of lemonade for lunch. 

Meal inspiration ideas using BI-LO deli items: 
  • You can make chicken Caesar wraps by using fried chicken tenders from the deli paired with bagged Caesar salad from a kit, then wrap it up in a tortilla. 
  • Add grilled shrimp or chicken to the salads available at the hot food counter. 
  • Have deli ribs as the main dish paired with deli beans and rolls from the bakery.
  • Shred the meat from a rotisserie chicken to add to your favorite rice dish.
  • Make a sandwich board by taking a variety of deli sandwiches and cutting them into small size portions. Add cubes of cheese and assorted fruit. It's perfect food to graze on while watching a movie together as a family. 
There are so many meal possibilities you can come up with these deli foods. It’s easier when BI-LO cooks! It really feels good on days that I didn't have to cook and clean the kitchen multiple times. I hope that you all take good care of yourselves, and take breaks in the kitchen as often as you can. Please stay well and thanks for stopping by.
