7.Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
What’s brilliant about this recipe is the fact that it’s all baked together in one sheet pan! You won’t even need a mixing bowl to toss everything together.
You simply put the chicken and veggies on the sheet pan, sprinkle with a fair amount of fajita seasoning, then you add a little bit of olive oil and toss it well. Throw it in the oven and this is how dinner is done!
Try these super yummy Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas tonight or later this week, you probably won’t find any leftover due to how delicious it is!
The healthy good news is that the insane amounts of cream are not needed to make an easy, quick, and insanely delicious, creamy potato soup.
All you need for this soup are potatoes, onions, milk, all-purpose flour, chicken stock, sour cream (or greek yogurt), cheddar cheese, some black pepper and salt bacon. For topping, bacon and/or extra cheese. This potato soup is ready to go in 30 minutes or so, and it also makes great leftovers.
In case you’re anti-bacon, you can simply skip it. You can also add in as much cheese as you want.
5.Creamy Tomato Shells
This Creamy Tomato Pasta is so basic, which is the whole brilliant point about it. You cook the pasta, you add the sauce, and you whiz up the cashews until they are like butter so then you can use them to make your pasta creamy.
The greens in this recipe are optional. All you need for this one is water, pasta, pasta sauce, cashews, and some garlic for even more flavor.And that’s it. Effortless deliciousness.
4.Watercress, Leek, Cheddar, and Sourdough Gratin
This recipe takes a little bit more time than the 6 others on this list, but most of it is just spent baking.
The only challenge here is slow-cooked leeks that take 15 min in a pan with a bit of oil and some water. Then you just dump the cheddar cheese, peppery watercress, and the bread into a casserole dish and let them bake!
Bonus points for this recipe are that you can assemble it in the evening, leave it in the fridge overnight and bake it in the morning. It might be even better this way as the flavor of the leeks infuses more and the bread gets a great chance to soak in the liquid.
3.Easy Italian Pasta Salad
This recipe makes for plenty of food (over 15 cups) so unless you’re feeding many people, you should have a lot left over to eat throughout the week.
You will need some good, spicy salami, tasty cheeses, tomatoes or some other vegetable you like, fresh parsley or some sort of greens. Along with red onions, olives, and a tangy Italian dressing. Ready in 30 minutes! (you can use store-bought Italian dressing if you want to cut down on time).
You will now feel like a little pasta salad boss.Also, probably the most important: you need pasta with good solid shape and texture to absorb all the sauce.
2.Sheet Pan Winter Buddha Bowl
Sheet pan dinners are a lazy cook’s best friend.
Here we have onions, potatoes, Brussels sprouts, purple cabbage, and butternut squash. These are some amazing fall and winter vegetables and they are so much more amazing served together.
The best cooking method of these veggies is roasting, a pinch of salt and seasoning is all they need, as the outside gets caramelized or crisp, and the inside tender.
Once our vegetables have roasted they can be assembled over a bowl of quinoa or any other grain, with a splash of extra virgin olive oil, and rapidly whisk together a dressing. For a fancy touch, you can top the whole thing with a fried or poached egg. Avocado and a sprinkle of fresh parsley can be added as well. So much goodness in a single bowl.
1.Easy Chicken Zucchini Noodle Stir-Fry
This healthy and tasty stir-fry is ideal for busy weeknights because it only takes a maximum of 30 minutes to make. It is loaded with colorful vegetables, chicken, and a simple sauce! And the zucchini noodles are brilliant! They are fun to eat and so filling!
Cook the peppers, carrot, red onion, snap peas, mushrooms, and garlic, with a tablespoon of olive oil. Keep stirring until vegetables are tender but crisp (about 4 minutes). Add the sauce to the pan and cook until it thickens up, (2-3 minutes), then add the chicken and stir to combine. Gently stir in the zucchini noodles. Cook for 1 minute, making sure the noodles are well coated with the sauce.
