My husband is difficult to cook for as he lived off of restaurants most of his life. I am trying to get him used to eating at home but he is picky! He hates steaks, pot roast, rice, and pork. I took him grocery shopping and told him to pick out something he likes and he runs up to me with hot pockets and hamburger helper. NO.
So ladies please help me out, what are some good recipes that are fairly healthy, not to time consuming and sure to please? If they are one-pot meals so much the better! I love to use crock pots and lots of veggies. What do your husbands love? I need some recipes!

It’s interesting how much the way you were fed growing up influences adult eating choices/habits. There are quite a few foods FI had never tried until the last few years…even some common things like a hamburger…as his mUom never served red meat!
Some of my man’s faves that I make:
Pulled BBQ chicken (he hates pork, too) super easy In the crockpot and freezes well
Tacos (usually lean beef)
Pizza or calzones (homeade or store bought crust) sometimes we do BBQ chicken or buffalo chicken pizza!
Broccoli cheddar soup or chili both made in the crockpot (just last week he said, man we need to stock up on soup for winter!)
Grilled cheese and tomato soup
Mac and cheese (from scratch!)

My SO grew up very poor, so he kind of learned to eat what was there. So I guess ‘anything’ would be the best way to describe what he likes.
He’s a in a better place now, but he’s still very hestitant to make choices about food. I’m kind of glad when he tells me he doesn’t like something, because it means he’s starting to have preferences. I try to keep a mental list of what he doesn’t like, and so far a lot of them are things I don’t like either, which is fantastic.

Chicken Parmesan! I bread the chicken then saute it and top with some mozz cheese. Then I make a side of spagettie with marinara. It’s his fave!

Our favorite recipe for chicken is pretty easy!
Mix a can of whole cranberries, about half a bottle of french salad dressing, and an onion souppacket. Pour over chicken and cook in the oven.
I will usually make this with steamed rice and veggies. For veggies, we usually will have brocoli, cauliflour, or asparagus. Lightly coat whichever you choose with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Throw it in the oven too.
