Quick Dinner Ideas

I know, I know – most days it’s difficult to get anything on the dinner table with all of the family around.  I admit, we eat out more than I’d care to.  But when I have my act together, these quick dinner ideas are what I prepare for my family.  They are the ones that they request and the ones that I know they will eat (without complaining – bonus!) every time.  

Chicken Dinner Ideas

Growing up, my Mom cooked with chicken almost every night.  It was a staple in our home.  Now a lot of the dinners that I make have chicken too.  These are some of our favorites:

Quick Dinner Ideas

  • Rosemary Chicken Pasta
  • Burrito Bowls
  • Mom’s Chicken Enchiladas
  • Chicken Spaghetti

Beef Dinner Ideas

With my family now, they really like beef with their meal.  Over the years I’ve made these beef dinner ideas over and over and over again.

Quick Dinner Ideas

  • Homemade Beef Enchiladas
  • Cheater Beef Enchiladas
  • Porcupines in a Skillet
  • Beef Taco Bake
  • Tamale Pie

Casserole Recipes

I know that casseroles can be controversial.  It seems like people either love them or hate them.  Anything with cream of _____ (chicken, mushroom, celery, et) that bakes in the oven can be viewed as a casserole.  And while they aren’t always the healthiest, having a casserole every once in awhile isn’t bad.  These are some of the ones that we like most:

  • Easy Weeknight Dinner – Tatertot Casserole
  • Southwest Chicken Bake
  • Chicken Tortilla Bake
  • Creamy Ritz Chicken Bake
  • Cordon Bleu Casserole
  • Company Casserole
