Ideas for Quick and Easy Dinners

When you live a busy lifestyle and need a plan of action to get a meal completed, quick and easy dinner ideas are ideal. All you need to do is take some time ahead of time to plan ahead and buy all of the ingredients you’ll need to quickly adapt to any rush situation during dinner time. The following suggestions are a good place to start.

Dinner pasta

# Pasta for dinner

Pasta is an excellent foundation for any meal. You can always stir fry vegetables with pasta and top them with your favorite cheeses. You can make your own sauce or buy it ready-made from the store. Linguine, spaghetti, and bow tie pasta are all examples of pasta that pair well with Alfredo or spaghetti sauce. You can also include your favorite meat, such as ground beef, grilled chicken, or seafood. This is a complete and quick dinner dish.

#Rotisserie chicken

Rotisserie chicken is always available at the local deli, ready to be prepared, cooked, and served to the family. Add some salad greens from the market and you’ve got an entire meal for less than the price of a full meal at a restaurant.

Minute steaks are pounded thinner round steaks that can be seasoned and sautéed in olive oil or butter. You can supplement it with vegetables, bread, and a salad. To round out your meal, a baked potato can be quickly microwaved.

Chicken breasts are used in a variety of quick and easy dinner recipes. Chicken can be cooked and sautéed in olive oil, with a can of cream of mushroom soup added for flavor and gravy.

casseroles dinner

# Casseroles

Casseroles are delicious and can be made in a matter of minutes. Green bean casserole, for example, contains canned green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and french fried onions. For about 30 minutes, bake the mixture.

# Chicken salad

For a quick dinner, I like to make a quick chicken salad to stuff in pita bread. I always keep the shredded chicken in my freezer for this, but canned chicken can also be used. Add a diced tomato, some poultry seasoning, mayonnaise, and a diced onion. Ours is topped with Monterey Jack cheese. When you have to get the kids to soccer practice or have somewhere else to go right after dinner, this is a quick meal.
