Three Ingredient Meals

- Advertisement -spot_img

Simple meals are my favorite. Even though I’m a good cook, tooting my own horn here, I still appreciate a lunch or supper that’s just a few ingredients that come together quickly. I came across three ingredient meals and knew I needed to share!

Ritz Cracker Chicken


-1 pound chicken tenderloins

-1/2 small bottle ranch

-1 sleeve Ritz crackers


Place chicken in a bowl, ranch in a bowl, Ritz in a bowl. Season chicken with salt and pepper, coat with ranch, then coat with the crackers. Place on a greased cookie sheet, bake at 350* for 20 minutes.

Lazy Lasagna


-1 (24oz) bag of frozen cheese ravioli 

-1 (24oz) jar of Marinara sauce

-1/2 cup mozzarella cheese


Place a layer of sauce in the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan. Arrange half of the frozen raviolis on top of the sauce, top with sauce and cheese. Add layers until all raviolis are gone, top with cheese. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and place in 400* oven for 30 minutes, remove foil and cook for an additional 15 minutes, or until the cheese begins to brown.


This one will technically be 4 ingredients since meatloaf is so often served with a sauce, but 4 ingredients is still impressive.


-2 lbs ground beef

-1 box stuffing mix

-1/2 cup milk

-Ketchup or BBQ sauce for topping/dipping

Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Place between two greased loaf pans. Cook in 350* oven for 50-60 minutes.

Hawaiian Chicken


-4-6 chicken breasts

-1 (16oz) bottle BBQ sauce

-1 can (8 oz) crushed pineapples


Place all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 4-6 hours, or high for 2-3 hours. Shred chicken and serve on tortillas or over rice.

Swedish Meatballs


-16 oz frozen meatballs

-1 can cream of mushroom soup

-1 Package dry ranch mix

-1/2 soup can water


Add all ingredients to a slow cooker, stir together. Cook on LOW for 4-5 hours. Serve over rice or noodles.

Dr Pepper Meatballs


-1 bag frozen meatballs

-1 can Dr. Pepper

-18 oz BBQ sauce


Place all ingredients in an instant pot and stir well to combine. Seal lid and cook for 12 minutes on low pressure. Natural release, and stir when timer beeps. 

Keep these six meals in your back pocket for the nights you want a home cooked meal in a fraction of the time or with little ingredients!
