One Pot Meals and Easy Sheet Pan Dinners

One Pot Meals and Easy Sheet Pan Dinners are fun to try when you are in a cooking rut. If your family is tired of the same old menu and you are fresh out of meal ideas, keep reading. Over 25 delicious meal ideas to choose from that aren’t all pasta.


Is your family tired of the same old, same old when it comes to dinner? I’m right there with ya. It’s no easy task trying to cater to the masses when each child has their own food preferences. It’s very rare that I make something for dinner that my whole family likes. (And moms all over the country shout “amen”!)

I’m definitely not of the camp where I make several different meals for one dinner. However, I do try to make foods that most of the family will enjoy.


Don’t be fooled into thinking these one pot meals are strictly pasta. While there is plenty of pasta to go around, you’ll find the most delicious one pot chicken meals here too along with easy sheet pan dinners featuring proteins and veggies.

My all time favorite skillet chicken recipe is this Creamy Tuscan Chicken recipe from Diethood. It’s Keto friendly, takes about 3o minutes to make and is one I can put my name behind because it is tried and true, not to mention, delicious!  

Now sit back and get comfortable as you scroll through a tasty assortment of one pot meals for the families on the go.
