A Few of My Favorite Easy Dinner Recipes April 21 2015, 136 Comments

Three easy dinner recipes that deliver

The end of the school year is fast approaching, and with it a flurry of activities. Grade culminations and celebrations, making teacher gifts, and class trips. Like the beginning of the school year, getting healthy dinners on the table at this time of year can be a struggle. Which is when I call up my favorite easy dinner recipes. These quick and simple meals always deliver. They're big on flavor, low on effort. Which is exactly the right combination.

Asian Meatballs

asian meatballs | the 52 new foods challenge | jennifer tyler lee

I love this recipe because I can make the meatballs ahead on a weekend and pop them into the freezer. On busy weeknights, I just toss a few onto a baking sheet, roast ‘em up, and we’re good to go. Pair with crispy green beans or bok choy to round out your colors.

Mini Quinoa Burgers

Quinoa can be a tough contender on the family dinner menu, but these tasty treats are packed with apples which makes them so yummy and delicious. You won't hear any complaints! These mini quinoa sliders can be made ahead and kept in the freezer until you're ready to eat. So easy.

Clay Pot Chicken

Stir-frying is one of my go-to quick cook strategies. This recipe is a riff on Clay Pot Chicken, but made quick and easy in a wok (you can just as easily use a frying pan). It can pretty much take any veggie you throw at it. Bonus, pack it in your kids' lunchboxes the next day. Gotta love double duty dinners!
