Dinner Ideas, Please.

So I am kind of at a loss as to what I want to make for dinner. We did soup last night and pasta the night before. I already have some cooked turkey thawed. I *think* I have some ground meat. I have chicken breasts and tilapia filets. I'm not anywhere near hungry, at the moment, so nothing sounds good. Just throw some ideas at me and hopefully something will jump out at me.

Thanks in advance!

I did an oven fried tilapia a week or so ago.  I served it with sweet potato fries, it was really good!

This recipe instantly came to mind.  It's our favorite tilapia recipe, and it's nice and light.  It also tastes amazing.  I've only done the fish portion of the recipe, not the salad, but I'm sure it's good, too.  I actually keep a container of the cornmeal crust mix on hand at all times so I can do this recipe without the hassle of mixing it every time.

If you have bread crumbs you could do a nice shnitzel with the chicken breast

I don't know that I have ever made shnitzel.

Easy peasy! Beat some eggs in a bowl, set aside. slice breast so that it's thin, pound with a mallet (I don't have one, so you CAN skip it if you want, just wont be as tender, even). season eggs w/ salt, pepper, whatever. and then dip chicken breast in eggs before coating with breadcrumbs.

Heat oil med-high in pan- enough to cover chicken 3/4.place shnitzel in oil and fry till brown on bottom, then flip.

It's really yumm.
