Dinner. Dinner. Dinner. Oy vey. You can totally shout and scream, I get your frustration. I did however come to the simplest conclusion about dinner. It is NOT supposed to awake feelings of anxiety, right? Right.
You work. Most probably an 8-5 job. You have kids. In school. With loads of extra mural activities, projects and exams. You most probably have a husband. That doesn’t eat veggies.
You have to run the household, from your desk. You have to make sure your family gets dinner. Behold the wrath of man and child when you DON’T deliver.
So here is the thing. Dinner, shouldn’t be an issue. I’m here, with an easy weekday dinner recipe, you’ll want to make over and over again. So breathe. Print this one and keep it close to your heart.
When I think of an easy dinner, four steps of prep is more than enough. Two pans or pots is acceptable, nothing more. A recipe that makes your leftovers the star of the show. And that tastes bloody delicious and fills the tummies with goodness.
An easy weekday Chicken, Leek and Mushroom Pot Pie. That is about right, yes?
Grab that puff pastry from the freezer (because everyone needs to keep a roll of pastry in their freezer!) Nab the stacks of tupperware from the fridge, shred your leftover chicken and saute it with finely chopped onion, leeks, mushrooms, garlic and chili. Add cream and reduce. Top it with pastry and bake. Boom, dinner is served.
You are welcome!
And just to keep those anxiety levels at bay, this Honey and Soy Chicken Strips with Dirty Couscous is a great chicken dinner idea. Or if you have a few stale looking buns floating around, you will love this Easy Spicy Chicken Subs with Parsley Butter and of course a Creamy Chicken and Rice Bowl recipe will also not disappoint.
