10 Quick + Easy Meals
Are you looking for some different quick and easy meals? Our family tends to cook the same three or four recipes, so every once in a while I love to throw something new and different in. Take a look at these 10 quick + easy meals for next week’s meal plan.
Sheet Pan Roasted Lemon Garlic Butter Salmon With Feta & Olives
By Tieghan Gerard from Half Baked Harvest
This Sheet Pan Roasted Lemon Garlic Butter Salmon with feta, olives, and potatoes is a flavorful update to the classic salmon dinner. Baby potatoes roasted alongside herby, lemon, and garlic roasted salmon. Topped with a tangy and slightly salty olive and feta dressing. It’s a touch buttery, colorful, healthy, and beyond delicious.
Crispy Panko Shrimp Salad
By Martha Stewart from MarthaStewart.com
Salads are one of the more simple dishes to prepare. In this quick five-ingredient dish, Dijonnaise (a flavorful mixture of mustard and mayo) binds panko crumbs to the shrimp and also adds creaminess to the dressing.
Shepherd’s Pie From Leftovers
By Paul Lowe from Sweet Paul
You can substitute whatever type of leftover meat you have for this Shepherd’s Pie. The classic version uses lamb, but it tastes fabulous with pork, beef, or chicken as well.
Roast Chicken With Balsamic Peaches, Leeks & Thyme
By Andrea Bemis from Dishing Up The Dirt
We’d just picked up a flat of peaches (can use frozen) and I thought they would make a lovely addition to this simple roast chicken dish. Turns out, adding peaches made the chicken extra moist and the touch of sweetness was a lovely combination with the meat, leeks, balsamic, and herbs.
Bacon-Wrapped Filets with Cowboy Butter
By Ree Drummond from The Pioneer Woman
A nice, juicy steak is wonderful all on its own. But wrap it in bacon and drench it in some herbaceous butter, and you’ve got yourself a truly unforgettable meal.
Reuben Meatballs With Thousand Island Coleslaw
By Anita Hinkeldey McVey from Picnic Life Foodie
Daffodils, daylight savings time, green beer, Lent, basketball: March has arrived. I typically forget to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, have never filled out a March Madness bracket, and miss that hour of daylight in the morning. However, the extra hour of daylight in the evenings, the sight of the first green blades of grass, and an Iowa State trip to the Big Dance are worth celebrating. What better way to celebrate than with a seasonal meal: Reuben Meatballs with Thousand Island Coleslaw!
Lemon Earl Grey Pound Cake
By Lokness from The Missing Lokness
This moist buttery pound cake is flavored with lemon zest and earl grey tea leaves. It has subtle lemon and tea flavors. Not overly strong, but just enough that you can taste it.
Easy Chicken Piccata! Takes 20 minutes to make. Chicken breast cutlets, dredged in flour, browned, served with a sauce of butter, lemon juice, capers, and stock or wine.
Crispy Braised Chicken Thighs With Cabbage and Bacon Recipe
By Serious Eats
Some people have fallback recipes. The ones that they pull out again and again when they can’t think of something new to make. I’ve got a couple of those, but I also have fallback techniques—basic blueprints for constructing a dish that can be infinitely variable depending on the specific ingredients you use. The main elements are instantly recognizable, but they’re placed in a novel and thrilling context that gives them a new life, resulting in dishes that are simultaneously exciting and comforting. Braising chicken with crispy skin is one of those techniques. This time, I’m pairing it with cabbage and bacon.

By Natasha from Natasha’s Kitchen
This Pan-Seared Steak has a garlic rosemary-infused butter that makes it taste steakhouse quality. You’ll be impressed at how easy it is to make the perfect steak – seared and caramelized on the outside, and so juicy inside.
