You finally decided to be the head chef of your house. Cooking dinner is not going to be that hard, you said to yourself. But now…what are you going to cook for dinner?
Nobody would blame you for running low on ideas for dinner.
11. Chicken Alfredo Stuffed Shells
From the cheesy alfredo sauce and flavorful chicken to the beautiful coloring of the bacon and tomatoes, this dish is a must-try.
You can use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken for extra juiciness!
It might take a little longer to make your own sauce, but it’s so worth it in the end.
You can use any cheese combination you prefer and add seasoning to your own preferences.
A great way to infuse extra flavor into the sauce is to heat the milk with garlic and onion, allowing it to steep and cool before straining and adding to the mix.
12. Easy Taco Casserole
Just when you thought tacos couldn’t get any easier, this casserole pops up!
Combining beef with onion, salsa, mayonnaise, and seasoning, it just needs to be layered with tortilla chips and baked.
It’s kind of a cross between taco lasagna and overloaded nachos.
Whatever it is, it comes together in just 15 minutes.
13. Turkey Biscuit Casserole
I can’t say enough good things about this casserole.
Creamy, loaded with veggies and meat, and topped with tender biscuits, it’s warm and incredibly comforting.
Not only is the filling homemade with chicken stock, onion, and a pinch of cayenne for maximum flavor, the biscuits are full of cheese, chives, and black pepper.
Every single bite of this will make you close your eyes and sigh just a little. It’s that good.
14. Best Chicken and Dumplings Recipe
Dumplings are a lot like biscuits, especially in this dish.
Both are made using a batter-like dough that needs to get shaped and placed on top of a creamy filling.
Biscuits tend to be a little more firm, holding their shape when cooked so you can pick them up.
Dumplings, on the other hand, steam in the oven and cook submerged in liquid to make fluffy and light covering to your chicken filling.
Either way, you’ll be happy.
15. Beef and Broccoli
I think most of us assume recreating our favorite restaurant dishes at home will be disappointing.
But you never know until you try, and this is the perfect place to start!
Beef and broccoli is a favorite for most households, and it couldn’t be easier to make at home.
Don’t skip the marinade time. It’s what keeps the beef full of flavor and tender.
I like to throw some cooked noodles into the mix for the last couple of minutes cooking, but you can serve with rice, too.
16. Patty Melts
A diner classic, there’s something so homegrown about a patty melt.
Typically served on thick, toasted white bread, they make such a nice change to dry burger buns.
If horseradish isn’t your thing, you can leave it out for something less spicy.
Or, if you like it with more heat, feel free to add in some chillies or hot sauce.
17. Salmon Teriyaki
Salmon is one of those meals that doesn’t need a lot done to make it delicious.
Lemon juice, honey, chili, or just garlic butter will all enhance this already tasty fish.
But I have to say that this teriyaki meal is up there with the best of them.
Store-bought sauce will work wonders, but when it only needs three ingredients, why not try making it yourself?
For fork-tender, moist salmon, cook on the stove over low heat with a lid on the pan.
18. Slow Cooker Hamburger Stew
When making a stew, you’ll want it to be super filling. And this recipe delivers!
Full of potato, carrot, tomato, and plenty of beef, you won’t be hungry after a bowl of this stew.
The prep time is already quick and takes just 15 minutes.
But if you’re looking to save extra time, feel free to add the beef in raw. You’ll cook this for hours in the slow-cooker.
I like to throw my tomatoes in a pot and bring them to a quick boil before adding in the beef because it makes the meat break up faster.
Once the meat is at the desired size, add everything to the pot with the rest of the ingredients.
19. Wingstop Garlic Parmesan Wings
BBQ or buffalo wings often make an appearance at parties and during football games.
Yes, they’re delicious! But I like to have other options on the table.
Garlic parmesan wings are crispy, salty, cheesy and make for a lighter alternative to wings smothered in sauce,
The key to getting all that flavor without burning the garlic?
Fry and bake the wings until they’re beautifully crisp, then pour your mixture of garlic, butter, and parmesan over the top.
20. Potatoes Au Gratin
Potatoes are my go-to for a quick side dish.
I often end up roasting them to serve with chicken or pork, just because it’s the easiest option.
But when I have the extra time potatoes au gratin are a decadent alternative that everyone will love.
This recipe comes together in just 15 minutes. Be sure to cut your potatoes thin, so they cook evenly!
