5 Delicious One Pan Dinner Recipes to Make This Week

March 28, 2017

It's the beginning of the week, we're back at work and I bet you're already thinking what to make for dinner tonight, right? I know I am. I love the weekends because I have the time to be in the kitchen cooking and creating meals, even if they take hours. But come Monday my mindset, and priorities, shift and I look for ways to shave off time spent at the stove (and at the sink). We're all busy, and we all get tired at the end of the day, but we still have to feed - and nourish - those hungry mouths, even if we're just cooking for one. I love one pan and one pot meals (the slow cooker is my best friend year-round) as you can pack in the ingredients without making a mess. When cooking a sheet pan dinner (a meal where you can cook everything right on a cookie sheet) I always line the pan first with aluminum foil for even easier cleanup.

This week, try the Chicken Fricassee Abruzzo, a one skillet dish featuring flavorful chicken thighs, tomatoes, sweet and spicy peppers, olives, and herbs. It's easy, it's packed with wholesome ingredients, and best of all, you will love it. Serve it with a whole grain like farro and a big green salad simply dressed with olive oil and vinegar. If you're craving something creamy and delicious, try the Creamy Lasagna or the Chicken Broccoli Bake - both are cooked up in just one skillet. Read on for more week night dinner inspiration.
