We’ve all been there. You just getting home from work, you’re hangry, tired and have zero patience. You want something to eat now and you want it with a minimum of fuss and drama. Using ingredients you usually have on hand, what’s your quick dinner of choice? The only rule - there has to be some actual cooking involved on your part. No reaching for a purchased microwavable frozen meal and no calling for a meal delivery or restaurant reservations.
I usually go in one of two ways:
OPTION 1 - I don’t care if in the evening, I’ll make breakfast. I can have sausage, pancakes and eggs on the table in ten minutes.
OPTION 2 - plop a frozen chicken breast into a skillet along side some chopped onion, peppers and mushrooms. When the chicken is thawed enough to permit, remove it, cut it up and return to pan with spices and a can’s worth of drained black beans or refried beans. Wrap the resulting glop into a flour tortilla and call it a day.
What’s your quick meal strategy?
