Weeknight One Pan Meals
Updated: May 31, 2022
All month long we have been giving you ideas to make the school/work routine more balanced. It's been a few years since my kids were at home, but I remember how hectic getting dinner on the table before we all had "snacked" ourselves full. This blog will give you 5 weeknight meals that are simple and quick from prep to table. An easy way to use these recipes is to designate one night a week and sheet or one-pan meals. Even if one isn't to your liking you have a month's worth of weekly meals.

Cod is a great choice when looking for a fish option. It is high in protein, omega-3, and B12. Cod is also low in calories. It is topped with olive tapenade. You can purchase tapenade already prepared in the deli section of your local grocery store or make your own with a food processor.

Cashew chicken is a favorite Chinese dish that doesn't have to be complicated. By using fresh ingredients and making the sauce yourself you control the amount of salt. You can substitute zoodles instead of rice.

We love breakfast for dinner and this one-skillet meal hits the spot. We prefer to use seasonal vegetables when they are available, but frozen varieties work just as well. I like to use white cheese, but you can add your favorite cheese or use a cheese blend.
