8 Quick But Fancy Meals You Should Make This Week
We hope you're feeling hungry this week. While these recipes all require a little more work than, say, making a sandwich, all of these are pretty easy and very realistic for your busy weeknights – bonus, they are all super tasty. Knock yourself out:
1. One Pot Cajun Chicken and Sausage Alfredo Pasta
A one-pot wonder. If you don't feel like buying Cajun seasoning, go ahead and mix equal parts cayenne pepper, onion powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
2. Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef
Let it cook all day when you're at work. Then just serve it with some rice and maybe veggies if you're feeling healthy.
3. Pretzel Crusted Cordon Bleu
You can totally use this formula and up your ingredients if you want – for example, you could totally fill the inside with spinach and ricotta and/or wrap the outside in bacon. Follow your heart.
4. Easy Chicken Piccata
Creamy, crunchy, salty, tangy, moist – this chicken recipe has it all. We recommend serving it with this easy rice cooker rice pilaf.
5. Pork Cutlet Sliders
No, you don't understand – the pork cutlets are the buns!
6. Rigatoni Pasta Pie
It looks awesome and tastes even better. Make sure your sauce isn't too chunky so that it will slide down into the noodles and keep them nice and moist.
7. Spicy Sesame Cauliflower Wings
Be sure to make extra, because you are going to devour these faster than humanly possible.
8. One-Pot Poached Shrimp And Orzo
If you have a rice cooker with a steamer attachment, use it to make this one of the easiest recipes you will ever cook.
