One Pan Salsa Chicken and Rice

One Pan Salsa Chicken and Rice

A spin on one of our favorite weeknight staple meals, baked chicken and rice, this One Pan Salsa Chicken and Rice is made with Tex-Mex spices and salsa. Think of it like cheater Arroz con Pollo. Even better, though? Under 10 ingredients, no prep required, and ready in about 30 minutes.

One Pan Quinoa with Chicken Sausage and Kale

One Pan Quinoa with Chicken Sausage and Kale

This, friends, is the ultimate one pan meal. Every box is checked — high-fiber carbs, protein, greens. But the best part? Minimal prep. Aside from slicing chicken sausage (and chopping kale if you don’t buy bagged, pre-chopped), this is a true dump and go situation.

One Pan Ravioli with Easy Meat Sauce

One Pan Ravioli with Easy Meat Sauce

When Monday dinner won’t cook itself, jarred sauce and frozen ravioli pull through for the win. Stir frozen ravioli into a simmering sauce until heated through, no need to boil it separately here. This is a weeknight staple in our house. Round it out with a simple salad.

Skillet with Roasted Pepper Shakshuka and Toasted Pita Bread

Roasted Pepper Shakshuka

Meet your new mid-week flavor pick-me-up, a la Roasted Pepper Shakshuka. This spin on the traditional Middle Eastern dish is smokey, full-bodied and warmly spiced, not spicy hot, thanks to fire roasted tomatoes, jarred roasted bell peppers (time saver!), and smoked paprika.

Cast Iron Skillet with Chicken Thighs and Rice

One Pan Arroz con Pollo Verde

I can’t claim Peruvian authenticity with this One Pan Arroz con Pollo Verde, but I’ll stand behind it’s simplicity. Simmering the rice in stock, salsa verde, and shredded cheese makes it ultra-creamy. And because this cooks on the stovetop and not the oven, it’s on the table in about 30 minutes.

Sheetpan with roasted cauliflower and potatoes, grilled naan, and cilantro yogurt sauce

Sheetpan Aloo Gobi with Cilantro Yogurt

This Sheetpan Aloo Gobi is my roasted version of the traditionally sautéed Indian entree of potatoes and cauliflower. It’s delicious as a meatless main dish served alongside toasted naan, or works well as a side for chicken or lamb. And you won’t want to skip the cilantro yogurt sauce, which is the perfect bright and […]

Roasted Salmon with Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette

Cut a couple corners with this easy #sheetpansupper and flavor hack. While marinating salmon for about 30 minutes helps impart big flavor, we don’t always have that time luxury on a weeknight. In this Roasted Salmon with Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette, we top the fish with a simple vinaigrette after it roasts. I promise, you won’t know the […]

Weeknight Chicken Noodle Soup

Weeknight Chicken Noodle Soup

Regardless of the season, some days just call for the simple comforts of Chicken Noodle Soup. And while you can’t argue with a simmered-all-day pot of homemade stock, Wednesday deserves a good bowl of soup just as much as any Sunday. Sautéing the vegetables in a little butter and using a good store-bought stock delivers […]

One Pan Unstuffed Peppers

One Pan UnStuffed Peppers
