Quick and Easy Dinners Everyone Will Flip For

Dinner during the week is just no joke, you guys. In our house, it's a nightly struggle, and try as we might to meal plan, in reality that doesn't always work for our lifestyle. 

My husband and I are terrible at leftovers, so making things in bulk to eat throughout the week simply never works out for us. Especially because our oldest son doesn't deal well with casseroles and soups. 

That makes up the majority of any recipe that can be made ahead in bulk, making this a frustrating process for everyone. 

Figuring out dinner on the fly, that can be on the table in 30 minutes or less, is definitely the place where my family resides at least four nights out of seven. So I thought, why not pull together some of my favorites that I've made from the Food Fanatic archives over and over again. 

These are recipes my family loves, and I think you will too. Now hurry up, you've got soccer practice to get to!

1. Easy Coconut Chicken Curry Recipe

We've made this Chicken Curry three or four times in the last month. We leave some chicken out of the sauce for our picky eater, but otherwise, it's a family favorite!

2. Instant Pot Panera Mac and Cheese Recipe

My two-year-old adores Panera's mac and cheese. Now we can make it at home and I don't have to change out of PJ pants. Win-win.

3. One Pot Spaghetti Recipe

Normally I turn to jarred sauce to get spaghetti on the table, but this recipe is so simple, I didn't need it. And on a random Tuesday, I had every single thing I needed on hand already!

4. Chicken Satay Stir Fry Recipe

We looooved the satay sauce, and this recipe was SO easy! We served it with roasted broccoli and jasmine rice, and dinner was done super quick.

5. Easy Chicken Fried Rice Recipe

I love making rice dishes because they're something everyone will eat happily. We're starting to introduce more Asian flavor profiles to our littles, and they both loved this chicken fried rice.

6. Instant Pot Mongolian Beef Recipe

One of the best "fauxlivery" recipes I've ever made. Skip the delivery fee and tip and make this at home instead.

7. Chicken Taco Salad Recipe

Chicken tacos and taco salad are favorites in our house. We customize the toppings per each kid and ourselves, and have one happy crew.

8. Sheet Pan Chicken and Squash Dinner Recipe

A sheet pan dinner can be a total game change for your routine. We do crispy chicken thighs a lot, and change up the vegetables, but squash is one of my favorites.

9. Garlic Baked Chicken Recipe

We love love love baked chicken, especially if it has lots of garlic. We've even taking to using Roasted Garlic Triscuits for some of the coating.
