Skillet Pork Chops with Apples and Onions
Elegant and easy, this hearty dish comes with a side and a sauce all-in-one. Be sure to brown the chops well so they'll give the mustardy pan sauce deep flavor.
Lemon-Rosemary-Garlic Chicken and Potatoes
Nicknamed "Anytime Chicken" by Test Kitchen Specialist Vanessa McNeil Rocchio, this winner of a chicken dinner is our new favorite roasting-pan supper for weeknights or easy entertaining with friends.
One-Pot Pasta with Tomato-Basil Sauce
This dish is a revelation. Throw all of your ingredients into one pot over medium-high heat, and about 25 minutes later you'll have noodles perfectly coated in a luscious tomato-basil sauce. This is any busy mom's weeknight dinner perfection. If entertaining, serve with one of our easy green salad recipes for the complete dinner experience.
Curried Shrimp with Peanuts
"This is an updated version of my favorite dinner as a kid," says Vanessa. "Cooking the curry powder with the flour brings out the essential oils, making the dish even more flavorful."
Easy Side: Cook 2 (8.5-oz.) pouches ready-to-serve basmati rice according to package directions. Stir in 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, 1 tsp. loosely packed lime zest, and 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice.
Roasted Chicken Caesar Salad
Reinvent the Caesar by roasting the lettuce to caramelize it, and jazz up store-bought dressing to make it taste like homemade.
Skillet Orzo with Fish and Herbs
Cook the orzo like rice, paella-style, on the stove, then top with fish, and bake. Feel free to substitute salmon for any flaky white fish.
Quick Beef Chili
Rich, beefy petite tender, the quick-cooking foundation of this stew and a supermarket steak cut from shoulder, looks and tastes like tenderloin but costs a third of the price. Can't find it? Try chuck-eye steak, which has good flavor but needs a little more trimming.
