If you’ve been looking for quick easy dinner recipes for a while, I’m sure that by now you’ve probably realised just how difficult it can be to find something that actually tastes good. I mean, come on, chicken! We all love chicken. It’s one of the most basic and healthy foods available. Plus, there are literally thousands (even millions) of different recipes out there – how are we supposed to know which ones are good?
Quick Dinner Ideas
Well, that’s where these quick easy dinner ideas will come in. They’re basically just ideas that can be adapted to suit your needs, whether it’s just one pot of soup or a whole meal. The first thing that you need to realise when looking for a meal replacement is that you can’t use the same ingredients twice. For example, if you make a chicken stock and then use cream and potatoes together to make a sauce, both of the components have to be used. And since potatoes have a stronger flavor than the stock, this won’t work as well.
But what about an easy dinner for summer? If you don’t like tomatoes much, then the classic Italian recipes such as spaghetti, lasagna or even a fresh spaghetti salad can easily become boring. You could try something different with a one pot meal – that is, a zesty, non-starchy tomato and egg zest soup. A baked potato, tossed salad, leftover pasta and a spiralizer could make a delicious and healthy dinner for a variety of people with varying degrees of food allergies and diets. Plus, if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, why not try cooking a tasty stew using squash, leek or potato instead of pasta?
Another quick easy dinner idea that doesn’t use any cooking skills is a hearty stew like beef and vegetable soup. This soup is easy to prepare, and the beef will provide some needed protein in your diet, especially if you’re cutting back on meat and focusing more on vegetables. A baked potato makes a great side dish to this dish, and if you have a gf or Celiac disease you can use gluten free pasta (and no, I’m not saying that you have to go out and buy one…Gf and Celiac Disease don’t make good companions). Serve with some baked beans and you have a tasty, low fat, low calorie meal that your whole family will love! Use your favorite veggies, add some chunks of fat-free cheese, a little onion and some garlic and you’re all set.
Light Dinner Ideas With Family
If you want a lighter dinner for your family, consider one of the many quick easy dinner ideas that you can make using gluten free products (such as rolls, sandwiches, muffins, soups, chili, stew, etc.). One way to do this is to use a one-pot meal plan, which can include other foods from the menu (like rice and beans) and can also take place in your kitchen as you cook the main meal. You can create your very own delicious and healthy meal by creating your own sloppy joes, baking your own muffins and using your gf’s favorite condiments. You can use your imagination and let your creativity take over so that you end up with a very satisfying meal that you and your family will love!
Other Quick Dinner Recipes
Gluten free skillet and pie recipes are very popular and are ideal for people on a diet. Because these meals are made with ingredients you likely already have in your home, they are also very budget friendly and filling at the same time. Plus, using a slow cooker and your standard kitchen tools, you can create some mouth-watering dishes that will have your family buzzing in excitement the minute you’re done. And while your children are eating your meals, you can be enjoying your own too!
For a quick and easy chicken dinner, you’ll need your favorite chicken breasts, a sliced it, some red onions, some fresh Italian herbs such as thyme, oregano, and lemon pepper, some tomato paste, and your favorite Italian bread mix. You can either make your own bread mix or find one at the store. Then just throw everything into your slow cooker, set the low setting, and let it go for hours on end. When it’s done, you have a mouthwatering chicken dinner that is low in fat and full of flavor! It’s a great way to clean up on your diet too since your family will be eating a healthier meal with less fat too.
