What’s not to love about these 15 One Pot Meals? Just one dish, and You’ve got dinner on the table! My Royal Kitchen One Pot Meals are quick, easy, and best of all delicious!
Cooks used to make casseroles, and then let them bake while they cleaned the kitchen for the next 30 minutes. Who has time for that? Some days I do. On those days I love nothing more than to scrub every nook and cranny. Yeah, right!
I really do love to cook and love pulling out all the stops, but many weeknights I find myself reaching for my trusted favorites that get me from stove to table and out the door. On some of those rare sweet occasions, my One Pot Meals get me to soaking in a hot bath! also check out my Homemade Bath Fizzies, Peppermint and Eucalyptus Bath Salts, and Panaway Bath Salts, Interested in saving time at the stove?
Check out this great round up of some of our most popular recipes to get you out of the kitchen and back to where you want to be!
Easy Cheesy Sausage Mac
Comfort food at its best! This is a macaroni dish kids AND parents will enjoy. No one will be hungry with a big pot of Easy Cheesy Sausage Mac for dinner.
Cast Iron Skillet Harvest Squash
A seasonal main dish for that can be adjusted easily to be meatless or gluten free. Try it out for your next meat-free meal!
Easy One-Pot Sausage Pasta
For those evenings when you want to switch it up from beef or chicken, or you just happen to have some smoked sausage in the fridge that needs to be eaten! We get lots of coupons for smoked sausage so if you have a hard time thinking of a meal to eat it with as a main course, this is a great idea.
Tomato Basil Soup
This recipe wasn’t actually written as a one-pot meal, but it certainly can be! Just use an immersion blender or if you have a sturdy hand mixer, blend the soup right in the pot! It is finally getting to be cool enough here in Oklahoma for soups, and these are always so filling and comforting on a busy weeknight.
Easy Sausage and Corn Chowder
Again, this is a great comfort food for the middle of the week. It has a veggie, meat and filling potatoes so you don’t even need anything else to go with it!
Easy Homemade Goulash
One of my favorites is good old fashioned Goulash. It is such a good meal to go a long way, and we always have leftovers to take to work or have for lunch the next day. And it’s kid friendly of course, since it contains pasta!
One Pan Lettuce Wraps
For a lighter one pot dinner, check out these One Pan Lettuce Wraps. These are so good, guys!! They are also easy on the budget and perfect if you need to finish up the lettuce in the fridge. 🙂
Pumpkin Soup with Spiced Whipped Cream
This seasonal dish isn’t light, but it’s full of fall flavors and can be ready in one pot using an immersion blender or hand mixer. The spiced whipped cream is definitely outside the box, but pairs perfectly with pumpkin! I love the colors of this soup, too.
Easy Chicken Recipes
Parmesan Crusted Chicken
I make this often and it’s a family favorite. Parmesan is an easy topping for this baked chicken recipe, and it goes well with a pasta side if you wish.
Smothered Balsamic Mushroom Chicken
Check out the rich flavors of this Smothered Balsamic Mushroom Grilled Chicken! This is probably the closest I’ve seen a one-pot dinner come to a restaurant quality meal! Something about the mushrooms and the balsamic flavoring gives this dish a gourmet flair. Try it this week!
Cheesy Bacon and Ranch Chicken
I made this last night! It feeds a crowd and of course the kids LOVE it since it contains bacon–a family favorite.
It takes very little time to cook, and of course can be served along sides of mac and cheese, potatoes, salad or even rolls and veggies. So good!
Super Simple Hawaiian Chicken
Chicken is a staple at our house at least twice a week. Sometimes you need an exotic flavor to change up the menu! Check out this sweet but filling chicken dish! Best part, one pan in the oven and dinner is ready shortly!
Skillet Teriyaki Chicken and Rice
Instead of ordering take out, get your teriyaki chicken fix at home with this simple one pan meal. You can do rice as a side in a rice pot if you prefer, but this recipe is designed as a one-pot meal to feed the family.
Quick and Easy Italian Chicken
A lot of evenings we want something with an Italian food flair but just don’t feel like spaghetti night again. Italian chicken is a nice change! This one comes to gether in no time. Great as a light mid-week meal too, if you’re watching calories!
Hearty Chili Chicken and Rice
Here’s another great fall and winter comfort food. Something you can get ready in the skillet. I love chili in the slow cooker of course, but sometimes you don’t have time to prepare it in the morning! This favorite will be ready in no time.
