Quick and Healthy Dinner Ideas

Posted May 17 2013 9:00am

Hello my friends! As you know, Matt and I are on vacation in Italy right now, but I thought a post re-sharing a few of my favorite quick and easy dinner ideas would be helpful in the meantime. The next time you need something fast, check this post! First up is chicken – scroll down for seafood and vegan options. :)

Chicken Entrees:

No time to marinate? Try my Pan Seared Balsamic Vinaigrette Chicken . Exactly as it sounds – just cook the chicken in some store-bought balsamic vinaigrette (I recommend Newman’s Own brand). Juicy and flavorful! Serve atop salad or with some fun sides – my Mexican-Style Sweet Potato Fries and Lemon Garlic String Beans would go well with it!


Want an entire meal in one pan? Try my Saucy Tomato & Spinach Chicken – this would work well with firm tofu, too!


Another quick and easy chicken favorite is my Corn Flake Encrusted Chicken Fingers recipe! Pair it with the sides I noted above, or try my Garlic Herb Roasted Veggies (pssst: here’s How to Make Brussels Sprouts Delicious ).


Fish/Seafood Entrees:

My absolute favorite salmon recipe, Pesto Baked Salmon with Veggies , also happens to be extremely easy. Perfect for summer, too! Serve atop quinoa or greens.


Next up is my absolute favorite tilapia recipe: Almond Encrusted Tilapia . Try it topped with Black Bean Olive Salsa — delicious! It pairs well with any veggie side dish noted above as well.


Love shrimp? Try my recipe-not-recipe (no specific measurements necessary!) for Goat Cheese Shrimp with Rice & Veggies .


Lastly, want a meal idea that will impress guests by how fancy it sounds but that is secretly really easy to prepare? Try my Seared Scallops with White Beans and Spinach . YUM.


Vegan Entrees:

This one is an old favorite and is an entire meal in one pan: BBQ Chickpeas with Sweet Potatoes & Bok Choy .


Looking to experiment with nutritional yeast? Here are two fun vegan recipes that use it: “Cheesy” Coconut Sautéed Chickpeas and Kale & “Cheesy” Mushroom Quinoa .



And if you’re REALLY tight on time, try the easiest recipe of all time: 4 Ingredient Quinoa Salad .
