This simple one-skillet meal is full of flavor! With only five ingredients, it makes an easy weeknight dinner for the whole family (even the kids will love it). This recipe easily doubles or triples to suit your family and tastes just as good, if not better, as leftovers — perfect for throwing in the kids’ or your husband’s lunch box. Drumsticks are generally one of the cheaper cuts of meat, so this will make for a quick, easy and budget-friendly meal.
The flavor of bright lemon mixed with the tangy sweet kick of cranberries make this meal a win. With minimal prep and mess, this dinner is ready from fridge to table in just 50 minutes. This dish looks beautiful when served in the same pan, but you can also toss all the cranberries into a bowl or blender to make a side sauce. Squeeze the lemon into the cranberries, add a touch of sweetness with sugar or honey and in just a few minutes have yourself a cranberry dipping sauce for both the chicken and Brussels sprouts. Feel free to get fun with the veggies, too! Add any other greens or root veggies your family loves — especially if you are serving any picky eaters.
This savory dish is the ultimate form of comfort food! The gravy-like sauce blends perfectly with mushrooms and sits below crispy chicken thighs. The recipe requires minimal prep and cooks in under 40 minutes, making it a great meal for those busy evenings when you want something warm and filling. Not a mushroom fan? Replace them with cauliflower or even thick-cut bacon! Make a double batch for leftovers, because once you taste this, you’ll want to enjoy every night of the week! To reheat, stir a few teaspoons of water or chicken stock into the gravy and microwave in 30-second intervals. Microwave or warm the chicken in the oven separately since ingredients will have different reheat times. To make a whole new breakfast or dinner from leftovers, bake some biscuits or rolls and serve the chicken and gravy overtop.
