5 more easy dinner ideas


Because few people have the time and energy to fuss over dinner. So let’s get to ’em!

Honey-Chile Chicken and Cilantro Cream Sauce – Most times I’ll just sprinkle some Adobo on my chicken and call it a day, but other times my tastebuds need a little break from the ordinary. The contrast of the sweet-spicy chicken with a cool and creamy sauce is pretty darn irresistible. Tip: leave it in the oven for a little longer than what the recipe says for a nice crispy skin.


Avgolemono Soup – A wonderfully comforting soup! The lemon is perfect in this. I actually find that I’m squeezing more lemon than what’s called for, that’s how much I love it. You can also sub the rice with orzo, which is what I like to do. The addition of bite-size chicken breast pieces makes this a full meal for me. It’s surprisingly filling, as the egg yolks lend a richness and creaminess to the soup.

One-Pot Ravioli Skillet Lasagna with Sausage – Hey, this one sounds familiar! I posted the recipe some weeks ago, but it still deserves to be mentioned because it is one of the simplest, tastiest dinners I make. Make it vegetarian by omitting the sausage, which—bonus!— also cuts down on the cooking time.

Caramelized Salmon – I shouldn’t have to sell you on this one, since the word “caramelization” automatically makes this a winner. Pair it with roasted veggies and call it dinner! A healthy one at that.

Taco Chicken Bowl – With the use of a crockpot, this isn’t going to be the fastest meal to make. But does it get any easier than throwing all ingredients into one pot and it basically cooking itself? Nope. No it doesn’t.
