7 Easiest Ever Dinners To Make This Week


By Cooking Panda

If you are anything like us, you love eating home cooked dinners during the week but don’t always have the time or energy to make something super elaborate when you come home from work exhausted. Never fear! We’ve put together some incredibly quick dishes that you can whip up in 20 minutes or less. You’re welcome.

1. Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce

This tangy, creamy sauce will really jazz up some plain chicken breasts or pork chops to give them a wonderful rich flavor.

2. 20 Minute Turkey Taco Nachos

Cut your cooking time in half by using whatever leftover protein you have lying around.

3. Easy Beef and Broccoli

In just 15 minutes, you can have a healthy and completely delicious version of your favorite take out dish.

4. 20 Minute Lemon, Garlic, and Herb Baked Cod

Eat this with a simple salad and hearty grains like brown rice, couscous or quinoa. Yum!

5. 5-Ingredient Black Bean Soup

It literally takes about two minutes to dump all your ingredients into a pot, making this just about the easiest soup recipe ever, and it’s way tastier than the pre-made stuff.

6. Shrimp Fried Rice

What do you do when you have leftover rice? Fry it, of course!

7. Roast Beef and Salad Crepe

Use a packaged crepe to keep things super simple. Unless you can spare five extra minutes, in which case you should absolutely consider making them from scratch (recipe here).

By Cooking Panda

1. 20 Minute Thai Basil Beef and Lemongrass Rice Bowls

Got some extra ground meat and 20 minutes? Try this insanely fresh and warming dish that cooks up in a flash.

2. Brown Butter Scallops with Parmesan Risotto

Looking for something beyond quick? Go restaurant-status fancy with this deceptively simple meal. If you want to do even less work, make your risotto in a rice cooker like this. Seriously!

3. 30 Minute Sesame Mango Chicken Teriyaki

Craving a simple, sweet and savory dish to whip up that is more or less healthy? Give this a try. We bet it would be great with green beans and/or bell peppers too.

4. Lightened-Up Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

This might be The. Best. Recipe. Ever. Whether you are craving some Fettuccine Alfredo but don’t want something quite as heavy, or if you’ve been meaning to make some spaghetti squash but don’t know where to start, or if you simply need a delicious dinner, we love this recipe. Seriously. Try it.

5. Meatball Bake

This is a winning recipe, especially if you have frozen or leftover meatballs lying around. (If you don’t, they are really simple to make – check out this recipe. Feel free to use just ground beef if you don’t have veal and pork lying around.) Throw it all together with just a few ingredients for some classic comfort food.

6. Cold Peanut Sesame Noodles with Chicken

Cold noodles, hot chicken and fresh cucumbers. Yum!

7. Pasta with Yogurt and Caramelized Onions

You can and absolutely should use Greek yogurt as the base of your pasta sauce.
