It’s one thing to make dinner once in a while, but doing it every night, seven days a week can certainly get taxing after a while. When you’re a parent, this is pretty much a guaranteed thing, and after a while, you start running out of ideas. If you’re in this particular position, here are three great weeknight dinner ideas.

One-Pan Chicken

Have you ever heard of One-Pan Chicken? You might not recognize the name, but you’ve probably done this countless times before. Gather your chicken thighs or drumsticks, along with whatever you’re seasoning it with, as well as a bunch of veggies, and roast it in a pan for 30 minutes. Easy!

Veggie Stir-Fry

Another meal that’s super healthy and also incredibly easy to prepare is veggie stir-fry. You might think that stir-fry sounds more complex than you’d like to tackle, but when you really think about it, you’re just tossing a bunch of veggies into a pan. Ten minutes later, and you’re done.

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

Here’s yet another recipe that sounds a lot fancier than it actually is. This popular pasta dish is subtle but brims with decadent flavor. After preparing pasta al dente, mix it with minced garlic, olive oil, red pepper flakes, and parmesan cheese. That’s pretty much it!
