Supper time can easily get to being the same thing over and over again; or at least that’s a common problem at our house. I enjoy cooking, but sometimes coming up with what to make is frustrating. I have three new recipes to try this week to hopefully spice up your dinner menu! There are little measurements here, adjust to how many you need to feed and preferences on flavors and seasonings.
Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
I love anything on a sheet pan. It’s fast to make and the cleanup is easy.
- cut of chicken of your choice, I used 4 boneless skinless thighs
- 1 onion
- 2 bell peppers
- Fajita seasoning packet or seasonings of choice (garlic powder, chili powder, salt, pepper, and paprika was what I used)
Spread ingredients across tray, drizzle with oil. Cook at 425* for 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked.
My husband named these and I think it’s so funny of a name I had to share! This is the least homemade one, but it still involves frying something so call it homemade-ish. It is also something different, a twist on chicken and waffles and gets dinner (or lunch, breakfast, brunch?) on the table in a flash.
- frozen waffles
- Popcorn chicken, chicken tenders, chicken nuggets, there’s no rules here- get some sort of breaded boneless chicken
- Oil for frying
Before beginning set out your waffles, allow to defrost for 10-15 minutes to make them easy to fold and not break. Using tongs pinch the not-so-frozen-anymore waffles and dip into hot oil. There’s no need to deep fry, just a think layer of oil in a frying pan works. Cook both sides to a golden brown. Heat chicken and fill the waffle taco to the brim with chicken. Drizzle with pancake syrup or honey and enjoy!
Loaded Cheeseburger Baked Potato
Oh man, this one is good. I love a baked potato for dinner, serve with a side salad and you have a scrumptious meal.
- Ground beef
- Sour cream
- Green onions
- BBQ sauce
- Salt & pepper
Bake your potatoes your preferred way. I always cook mine in the microwave. Brown your ground beef and fry your bacon, bacon crumbles will work just as well! Once the potatoes are done scoop out the insides, place in bowl. Add butter, sour cream, salt and pepper to the potato. Replace mixture into potato skins. Top with ground beef, bacon, cheese, and green onions. Place in oven on broil for 3-4 minutes until cheese is melty.
Supper time can be such a struggle, but knowing what to cook is half the problem- at least for me. I hope one of these recipes inspires you to add something new to your menu.
