These One-Pan Dinner Recipes are sure to please your crowd and make you extra happy that there’s little clean up after a satisfying meal.

I’ve called myself this before and really mean it. I’m a lazy cook. Not necessarily when it comes to prepping and cooking food, but the part where you have to clean up. There’s nothing I detest more than a big pile of dishes from using 2 large pots, a sheet pan, a sauce pan, 2 cutting boards, etc.. Is any of this sounding familiar? 

The best part about these one pan dinner recipes is that you can use the basic cooking methods in the recipes and switch up the proteins and vegetable ingredients. Take for instance the Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner. You could also use chicken in this recipe, add any seasonal vegetables you have on hand including cubed baby potatoes, sweet potatoes, eggplant, butternut squash, carrots and more, and turn it into your own one pan meal with practically no clean up.

The same goes for the fish in parchment. I love this meal beyond words as the only clean up is your knife and cutting board. You can use chicken, scallops, shrimp or tofu and then add your own twist using of the spiced you love to create any flavor combination to steam in the packets and then toss the paper when you’re all done. It’s all about keeping things simple, fast and delicious.
