Nothing says, “easy weeknight dinner” like a one-pot meal. Try incorporating these easy one-pot dinners into your weekly routine to save time cooking and washing the dishes afterward!

Chicken Cacciatore With Orzo

This easy, Italian-inspired one-pot meal offers comfort from chicken thighs and orzo and brightness from fresh veggies in one dish! Ripe cherry tomatoes (or canned if it’s winter), fresh thyme, and fresh rosemary help make this the perfect dish to enjoy the fresh summer produce.

Lemony Tuna, Tomato, And Caper Pasta

This recipe proves that canned tuna doesn’t have to be boring or gross! The lemon zest, lemon juice, capers, and tomatoes bring a zingy brightness to the dish while creamy mascarpone and parmesan add a rich creaminess. Plus it all comes together in 30 minutes!

Honey Mustard Chicken With Parsnips

Save for the parsnip, you probably have almost everything else you need to make this easy, family-friendly one-pot meal, including chicken thighs, onions, vegetable stock, mustard, honey, and a few fresh herbs. You can serve this over rice, pasta, or veggies to complete the meal.

Meatball Black Bean Chili

If you’ve never thought of using meatballs in your chili, it’s time to reconsider! You can buy them pre-made or make your own – either way, this dish feeds a crowd and satisfies everyone with its rich flavor and heartiness.

Zucchini-Lemon Risotto

This one-pot vegetarian risotto is great as a side or the main dish – we won’t judge! If you don’t prefer zucchini, you could easily swap it out for eggplant, tomatoes, broccoli, or cauliflower. P.S. – the recipe calls for two tablespoons of crème fraîche – you can make your own, buy it, or substitute it for plain Greek yogurt or sour cream.

Chicken And Bacon Stew

This hearty one-pot stew will keep everyone’s tastebuds satisfied and their bellies full. Like the Honey Mustard Chicken, you can serve it over pasta, rice, or more veggies.
