Quick easy recipes for weeknight dinners?

Hello everyone,

I’m looking for simple (very few ingredients) recipes that contain chicken, turkey, fish, pasta, pasta sauce, breadcrumbs, etc. These are the ingredients I like to work with the most.

Does anybody have easy recipes where I can just toss a few ingredients in a dish and bake it without much prep. I don’t like stove top cooking very much, so anything that can be baked would be helpful 😉 Or even slow cooker recipes would be great because I have a slow cooker too. Thank you in advance =)

    I basically live by Kraft.com. They have a recipe section that is awesome. Lots of very easy tasty recipes with under 5 ingredients. They also have a free magazine you can sign up for that has even more easy recipes.

    If you want a very simple, cheap, but extremely elegant meal follow these directions.

    1 fillet of rainbow trour or atlantic pink salmon per person OR 2 small chicken breasts per person
    1 large red onion cut into circles
    1 bottle of Kraft: Balsamic Vinagrette
    1 bottle of seedy dijon mustard (Earls is good)
    1 bag of baby spinach per 3 people

    First, cut up the onion into large circles (cut the onion whole and pop the pieces out of each other)
    sautee them in a little bit of vegetable oil until they’re soft
    add in 1 tblsp of the dijon mustard, 2 if you’re feeling lucky
    add in 1 cup balsamic vinagrette and half a cup of warm water. allow everything to simmer for about 20 minutes or until it’s thickened up a little bit
    In a separate pan, brown the chicken with a bit of veg. oil. Just for about 4-6 minutes on each side. (If you’re using the fish, you’re going to want to make sure the oils about an inch high and it’s been on the high heat a while- cook each side for 8 minutes)
    Take the spinach and rip it up a bit so that the leaves aren’t too big. Set it up on the plates you’ll be serving the dinner on.

    Note: do NOT add the fish to the dressing while it’s simmering. Cook the fish in a separate frying pan. However if you’re using chicken, you may add it to the dressing while it’s simmering. It sucks in the flavours and makes the chicken juicy.

    Dress the bed of greens with some of the warm vinagrette you’ve made – make sure some onions get in as well. You may also transfer the dressing and greens in to a large bowl and pre-mix them, however you won’t have the opion of more or less dressing.

    Finish by placing the chicken breast (or fish) on top of the bed of greens, and lay another couple of spoonfulls of the dressing on top.

    All of this prep and cooking normally takes me about 30 mins, and i always get compliments on it. It looks like something that would cost 45 dollars a plate in a restaurant, but it averages out pretty cheap and its delicious… and healthy! (If your grandparents are wine drinkers, a dry red wine goes great with this)

    I also have a simple recipe for cream chicken

    You may use 1 or 2 small chicken breast per person, or a large chicken leg per person.
    1 can of mushroom soup.
    (You may add fresh, chopped mushrooms too)
    1 cup grated cheddar cheese
    1 large sweet onion, chopped and sauteed with butter
    2 tblspns melted butter

    Mix all ingredients together (half of the cheese). Pour butter over chicken, pour ingredients over chicken. Let cook for 45 mins @ 400F Then cover in shredded cheddar

    (depending on how many people in your family) 2-4 small stir fry steaks, cut in to strips. Fry them til brown. Sautee a large onion and 1 green pepper (chopped) and 1 red pepper (chopped) (You may also add a can of mushrooms or peas and carrots) Put them in a large pot and add 2 small cans of campbell’s tomato soup. Bring to slow boil and turn down. Put on top of rice or pasta,

    Boil some penne rigate very al dente. Brown some sliced chicken breast (about 1/2 in. or a little thinner) in olive oil, add sliced onion and sliced sweet (not roasted) red peppers -the pickled kind in a jar. Cook until the onions are translucent, adding EVOO and a little of the pepper juice as needed. Add chicken broth, salt and pepper, paprika- enough for color. Add pasta and cook about 5 minutes until the broth thickens. The penne will be nicely flavored and the dish will be a beautiful reddish color. Add fresh or dried parsley and grated parmesan when plating. Even my kids love this! Good luck!!

    I made this last night and it was delicious, easy, and had virtually no clean up. I found it at http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf

    4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
    4 tsp.Taco Seasoning Mix
    2 cups thinly sliced peeled potatoes
    1 cup Shredded Cheese
    1/2 cup Salsa
    1/4 cup Sour Cream

    Preheat oven to 400. Sprinkle chicken evenly with seasoning mix. Place 1/2 cup of the potatoes on center of each of four large sheets of foil; top each with 1 chicken breast, 1/4 cup of the cheese and 2 Tbsp. of the salsa.
    Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place in baking pan.
    Bake 30 to 40 min. (depending on thickness) or until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender. Remove packets from oven. Let stand 5 min. Place one packet on each of four dinner plates. Cut slits in foil with sharp knife to release steam before opening. Top each serving with 1 Tbsp. of the sour cream.
