A few easy ways to step up boring chicken dinners
Winner, winner, stuffed chicken dinner.
Aromatics. Roasting a whole chicken is one of the easiest ways to an amazing dinner. Alternatively, gently stuff thin slices of lemon or garlic between the skin and thighs or breasts for the same effect on a smaller scale.
Bacon. The fat in bacon adds flavor to lower-fat chicken.
Cheese. Whether it’s classic chicken cordon bleu or chicken stuffed with fontina, melty, gooey cheese is the perfect addition.
Mayo. Mayonnaise keeps chicken from drying out while it roasts.
Pesto. Whip up a batch of pesto and stuff it between the skin and meat of chicken thighs before grilling, roasting, or searing on a stove top. Although this is a super easy addition, the chicken will look (and taste) like you spent hours on it.
Tapenade. Dried plums balance out super savory olive tapenade in this Mediterranean-flavored dish.

70 Chicken Breast Recipes That Are Anything But Boring
There&rsquos a reason boneless chicken breast recipes are in everyone's dinner arsenal. From tasty finger foods to the most refreshing salads, chicken breasts can be made in so many delicious ways &mdash which is precisely why it's so hard for us to get enough of America's top bird when it comes to great food. And the best part of it all is that chicken breast is actually healthy, which is another reason why this lean white meat is the ruler of the roost throughout the country. In fact, chicken breasts have a slight nutritional edge over thighs: one 3½ oz serving of chicken breast meat is only 165 calories, with 31 g of protein (vs 209 calories and 26 g protein for the equivalent of thigh meat). Another bonus? They&rsquore super easy (and speedy) to cook, especially those that are boneless and skinless.
Of course, with so many ways to prepare chicken breast, it's all too easy to get stuck rotating the same three or four chicken recipes over and over again. That's why we've rounded up some of the best quick and easy chicken breast recipes that use the bird in fresh new ways, including for healthy sandwiches as well as for salads, tacos, sautés, and more. Whether you're going for a comforting soup or a filling pasta dish, you&rsquoll be sitting down to an easy (winner!) chicken dinner that reminds you why you fell in love with chicken in the first place.
6 Things To Add To Canned Soup To Make It Suck Less
By adding your email you agree to get updates about Spoon University Healthier
We’ve all been there before. You head to the cupboard, looking for food. Your stash of mac n’ cheese is dangerously low and you’ve been living the ramen life for three consecutive days—it’s time to explore other options. You stare blankly at the shelves, waiting for something to catch your eye. What’s that, behind the half empty bag of Cool Ranch Doritos? A can of soup.
Now that the polar vortex is back, it’s time for soup to reclaim its place in our hearts as a favorite go-to meal. Most college students don’t have extra time to slave over a pot of homemade soup every week, yet not everyone is a fan of canned soup. The mystery meat and slimy vegetables in canned soup can be questionable, so here are six quick and simple ways to turn your soup from canned to gourmet.
I’ll be the first person to admit that the canned chicken in chicken noodle soup is a little iffy. A simple solution to overcome the protein in canned soup is to add your own. Cook some extra chicken next time you’re making dinner, save it, and add it to your soup. This works with beef, bacon, sausage, and other proteins as well, depending on the flavor profile you’re looking for.
Cheese is an easy fix to add some flavor and creaminess to your soup. Try sprinkling feta on top of tomato soup or adding spicy pepper jack to chicken noodle. You can stir cheese into your soup or just add some to the top. The flavor combinations are limitless.
Sometimes all a soup needs is a little extra salt or pepper, but usually it needs more. Try adding minced garlic or fresh basil, parsley, or rosemary to your soup—whatever’s available. Acid is also a great idea. To make canned soup more gourmet, squeeze in some lemon juice or top it with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
While I don’t recommend adding cream to brothy soups, it makes a great addition to tomato soups and chowders. Cream or milk not only makes your soup smoother, it’ll also add a fresh taste to a food that’s been sitting on a shelf for several weeks (or months).
Fresh veggies are always preferred, but frozen vegetables work just as well and will still add a fresh component to a not-so-fresh dish. Any hearty vegetable works. Pick your favorite, pick what’s in season, pick what your mom sent you, or pick what your roommate’s boyfriend left in the fridge that morning.
If you don’t have croutons in your cupboard, I can almost guarantee that you have a substitute. Some favorites are tortilla chips, goldfish, pretzels, and popcorn. Any kind of chip works, and toasted bread is another quick way to make your own croutons. If you’re feeling especially fancy, cut your grilled cheese into cubes and use those as croutons in your tomato soup.

Sweet chicken with smoked paprika

By this time the sauce will be intense with flavour and texture too. You can store any leftover sauce in an airtight container or bag in the fridge for a couple of days or you can freeze for one month.

Feeding your dog dry food has so many advantages: it’s easy to store, it’s less expensive to buy, and it doesn’t spoil as quickly as wet food does. Also, dry food is better for your dog’s teeth and acts as a natural abrasive to dislodge gunk and bacteria. But dogs, just like humans, can be picky eaters, and they are sometimes resistant to eating the same dry food day after day. You can make dry dog food more appealing by changing the texture and adding different flavors without spending much extra money.
16 Things to Make for Dinner When You Don’t Want to Make Dinner
It doesn’t have to be elaborate — it just has to get done.
"I don’t know how you do it," she sighed.
All the moms were sitting outside our first graders’ tap and ballet combo class when one of them went down this road. "I mean, how do you cook all these nice dinners every night?" That’s when she explained a recent discovery that captured the exact amount of time and energy she has for dinner these days: When you invert a frozen lasagna from Costco, the whole thing fits perfectly in a slow cooker. "I turned it on low and by the time everyone was home for dinner, there it was. Bubbly and perfect. I felt like a winner at life!" She was joking, but listen very carefully when I say this: Cooking dinner every night is no joke. It’s a long and drawn-out marathon that lasts years. And years. And years.
And also, I don’t cook nice dinners every night either.
I have four small kids, two dogs, eight chickens, two bunnies, several thousand bees, one husband and at least three jobs. That means cooking whatever gourmet meals that other mom has running through her imagination is just not possible seven nights a week.
When things get hectic or I get tired, which unsurprisingly seem to coincide, these are the super simple family favorites that make their way to our table:
Throw a pan of water on the stove and saute a vegetable or two on the burner next to it. In twenty minutes or less, you’ve got a full meal with all the food groups present. My repertoire these days is 20-Minute Smokey Pasta with Kielbasa & Zucchini, Cheesy Spinach Pasta with Chicken or Simple Spring Pasta with Tomatoes and Mozzarella, a tangy one-pot dream I learned from a dear Italian friend when we lived in Rome.
This meatloaf makes use of the slow cooker, turning dinner prep into an easy do-ahead affair. Layering fresh mozzarella in the center provides a nice surprise when you cut into the loaf.
