Hearty One-Skillet Dinners

When looking to satisfy all those hungry souls at your dinner table, turn to that fabled kitchen workhorse, the cast-iron pan, for easy, filling fare. The fact that you can bring it straight to the table and scoop out the servings adds to the home-style effect these meals embrace. Here’s a selection that emphasizes the versatility of the method, with pasta, chicken, and even fish options.

Skillet Gnocchi with Wild Mushrooms

Try pan-frying store-bought gnocchi before tossing it with seared veggies.

Browned “pillows” of gnocchi are tossed with hot cherry tomatoes seared until they split to make a light pan sauce. A handful of parmesan and you’re good to go with a cheesy, easy meal.

Barbecue Chicken Quinoa Skillet

Leftover chicken, tricolor quinoa, vegetables, and barbecue sauce add up to a healthy, yummy skillet dinner.

Leftover or rotisserie chicken make this tangy, healthy one-pot meal possible as a weeknight dinner in less than 30 minutes.

Cheesy Skillet Taco Pasta

Rethink taco night with this kid-pleasing 30-minute meal.

Take Tex-Mex to the table for a quick, flavor-filled pasta that the kids will love. This recipe uses turkey but you can substitute lean ground beef if you have that hankering.
