These 3 ingredient dinner recipes are going to make weeknight dinners so simple!
This list here has more than two weeks of dinner ideas that requite only three ingredients. Not only doest that make life in the kitchen easier, it’s easier on your wallet, too.
I’ve been cooking at home so much more recently. I think with social distancing, we’re all finding ourselves spending more time in the kitchen.
For me, I’ve never been one to love cooking. It just hasn’t ever been my thing and that is OK.
Because of that, I collect easy, simple dinner ideas that can get on the table with little hassle. These certainly are perfect for that!
17 Easy 3-Ingredient Dinners
Chicken + Crunch Cheetos + Eggs
I can tell you that this is a great dinner for picky eaters. Kids love Cheetos chicken!
Ravioli + Cheese + Marinara
If you are in the mood for lasagna but don’t want to spend the time, this is a terrific way to cure your craving.
Meatballs + Cream of Mushroom + Ranch
Grab some buns and you are all set for dinner with this one.
Chicken + Marinara + Cheese
This is another one of my recipes and my family adores it. It is the easiest dinner!
Ham & Cheese Crescents
Crescent Rolls + Ham + Cheddar Cheese
We make this a lot when we have busy sports nights and need to get kids to practice.
Olive Garden Chicken in the CrockPot
Chicken + Parmesan Cheese + Italian Dressing
I love that this just sits right in the Slow Cooker and takes literally 30 seconds of my time!
Beef + Stuffing Mix + Milk
My husband loves meatloaf and this is a simple way for him to get some.

Another super simple dinner!

Similar to our Cheetos chicken, this one uses crackers thought.
Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Grab some tortilla shells and maybe some chips and salsa and dinner is all done.

Sloppy Joe Chicken Bake
Chicken + Sloppy Joes + Cheese
Another kid favorite is this combination of chicken and sloppy joes.
Squash + Mozzarella + Spaghetti Sauce
This is a terrific way to get your kids to eat healthy and try squash. Anything covered in mozzarella cheese tastes great, right?

This is SO GOOD! Trust me, this needs to go straight to the top of your list.

I have a question about the Chicken Parmesan Recipe. Do you cook the chicken in the marinara sauce or do you add the sauce after the chicken is cooked? The recipe and the details above don’t match. If you cook chicken first, I am assuming you will need to add some broth or water to cook and then drain once you shred and add sauce. Please advise. Thanks!
