Quick & Easy Dinner Recipes
GARLIC BUTTER SHRIMP PASTA – Girl Gone Gourmet | This easy garlic butter shrimp pasta is like a big hug – had a tough week? Dog mad at you? Feeling put-upon and misunderstood? Treat yourself to a pan of this buttery goodness – it’s so easy to make.
MUSTARD CRUSTED PANKO SALMON – Nourish and Fete | You only need six ingredients to make this simple crusted salmon plus it’s a quick 30 minutes start to finish – most of it hands-off time, which leaves some time to toss together a quick salad as a side.
CREAMY TUSCAN CHICKEN – Nourish and Fete | This pasta dish looks like one you might order in a restaurant (and pay way too much for) and the big secret is that it’s an easy 30-minute dinner made with simple ingredients. Serve it with pasta, rice or some roasted vegetables on the side.
PIZZA BIANCO – An Italian In My Kitchen | If you made your own pizza dough from scratch this definitely isn’t a quick and easy dinner, but if you buy a ball of pre-made dough this dinner takes hardly any time at all to go from oven to table. This white pizza is topped with pancetta, mozzarella, Parmesan and fresh arugula. Add a glass of wine and dinner is served.
TURKEY BURGERS WITH CREAMY HERB DRESSING – Girl Gone Gourmet | A healthy-ish burger! These turkey burgers are topped with fresh avocado and a creamy dressing made with Greek yogurt, lemon juice, and fresh herbs. They’re summery and full of fresh flavors.
EASY BEEF STROGANOFF – Go Go Go Gourmet | Beef stroganoff is one of those dishes you might think take a long time, but it doesn’t – in fact, it’s a speedy dinner idea that takes about 30 minutes, which means it’s totally doable on a weeknight. Check out the post for more info about the best cut of beef to use and how to make this comfort food favorite.
BLT PASTA – Platings and Pairings | When a BLT sandwich meets pasta you get a dinner that will make everyone happy. It’s loaded with bacon and lots of fresh tomatoes and some basil for a bite of freshness.
KIELBASA AND POTATO HASH – The Two Bite Club | A hash is a great way to use up odds and ends in the refrigerator and I love this version with kielbasa, potatoes, onions, and fresh peppers. You can use regular kielbasa or, like Becky did, use turkey kielbasa to make it a little healthier.
ONE PAN ROASTED CHICKEN AND VEGGIES – Girl Gone Gourmet | It doesn’t get any easier than tossing some chicken and veggies on a sheet pan and roasting them together. I love the petite red potatoes with the tender brussels sprouts seasoned with Herbes de Provence and the chicken comes out of the oven with a golden crispy skin.
15-MINUTE CREAMY SUN-DRIED TOMATO GNOCCHI – Salt and Lavender | More comforting goodness! This time it’s a quick 15-minute gnocchi dish with sun-dried tomatoes and fresh herbs in a creamy sauce. It’s so fast you have time to toss a salad to serve on the side for a dinner that looks like it’s “weekend-only”, but you can easily make it on a Monday night.
BAKED CHICKEN FAJITAS – Courtney’s Sweets | I love fajitas but if you make them on the stove top the chicken and peppers tend to sputter and splatter oil on the stove, which can clean-up a pain. Cooking the chicken and veggies on a sheet pan in an oven solves that problem making clean-up easier and giving you more time to gather all of the fajita toppings for serving like guacamole, salsa, and sour cream. Some advanced planning is necessary and you’ll want to give the chicken some time in the simple marinade, but with the short ingredient list and easy cooking method, this is still a go-to easy dinner.
CREAMY PORK CHOPS MARSALA – Striped Spatula | These pork chops are what I like to call “faux-fancy” because they look like they might have taken a long time to make with complicated techniques, but the truth is they take about 30 minutes to go from stove to plate.
