These simple dinner recipes are serious crowd-pleasers in my house!

Below are my family’s 4 FAVORITE easy dinner recipes – that also happen to be MY favorites too because they’re not only delicious, but they are so simple to make – and I almost always have the ingredients on-hand.

If you already have some ground beef or chicken (even left-over chicken!), your family is going to love these easy recipes too!

Before we jump in, I just have to share something with you…

My family (a.k.a. my KIDS) are super picky eaters and it can be a real challenge getting them to eat anything that’s not PB&J or chicken nuggets.

If your kids are picky-eaters too…

PLEASE try some of these “whine-free” recipes.

My kids LOVE them – shocks me every, single time, but they really eat them!

And, if your kids like to COOK…

These kid-friendly recipes from Rachael Ray are wonderful.

It’s funny how it works, but if my kids cook it, they tend to EAT it too =)

Yes, that’s it!

How To Make It:

  1. Mix the Italian Seasoning packet and the brown sugar.
  2. Coat the chicken in the mix on all sides.

  4. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and crispy and chicken is thoroughly cooked.
