“What’s for dinner?” is a common question around my house every day. It seems dinner is on my kids’ minds as soon as they step foot in the house after school. I have every intention to make a weekly meal plan for both convenience and cost, but that doesn’t always happen. With no dinner plans, I am often left staring in the fridge and pantry to see what I can whip up quickly. Having quick meals on hand saves my sanity when the kids are asking for dinner and I’m on the verge of giving in and ordering takeout. In between chauffeuring kids to soccer, football or play practice, I need to make something quick! Easy meals are also perfect for those days when I just don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. During my weekly visits to Target, I always make a point to grab everything I need to get me started.
Ingredients, meals, and tips for quick meals from a mom of five.
I recently gave in to the hype and bought a pressure cooker. If you don’t know what a pressure cooker is, it basically cuts the cooking time in recipes down substantially. Flavorful soups packed with veggies can be made in twenty minutes. Roasts that would have needed to start slow cooking in the morning are done in as little as 90 minutes!
I usually avoid pre-cut veggies because the markup is expensive! There are a few pre-cut veggies that I routinely use in recipes and the convenience is worth the extra price. Shredded carrots (used in the yummy Crispy Chicken Salad recipe below!) and cauliflower rice are my top two veggies that I keep on hand for quick meals.

I picked my no antibiotics ever Tyson chicken products up while doing my shopping at Target! They have a large variety!
Tyson chicken is yummy by itself (or with curly fries!) but can also be used in an unlimited amount of quick and easy recipes like this Crispy Chicken Salad. You can also easily turn this salad into a wrap for the kids for school lunch!
