My quickest dinner, serves 2 peope:

2 white fish fillets (catfish, talapia, etc) – sprinkle with cajun seasoning and cook in a skillet with olive oil until done

1 bunch asparagus – into the microwave steamer with 1/4 cup water for 2 minutes, squeeze with lemon juice and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper

Nothing fancy, but only about 5 minutes from start to finish!

When I don’t want to cook anything I make a yummy avocado sandwich with lettuce, tomato, sprouts, mayo, one avocado, and jalapeno slices. So good!

If I’m using heat I sautee squash, tomoto, onion in olive oils and make a pasta

My stomach is grumbling now..

Grilled Cheese 🙂 Simple, but effectively filling. 

Oh, and if I’m feeling fancy (or if it’s cold out) I heat up tomato soup on the stove. I can make enough soup and grilled cheese for 2 people in about 10 minutes.

Pasta with chickpeas. While pasta is boiling, saute half a diced onion in a little bit of olive oil, add three or four cloves of minced garlic and half a tsp or so of red pepper flakes. Pulse a drained, rinsed can of chickpeas in the food processor a couple of times (or mash with a fork), add to pan. Add half a tsp of dried thyme, salt and pepper to taste and saute for a three or four minutes. Add half a cup of chicken stock or white wine, cook down for about a minute, stir in a can of crushed or diced tomatoes and warm through. Toss with pasta, and add a little parm cheese. The sauce and pasta usually finish at the same time.

@TeamMcGowan: You beat me to it 🙂

Other than a salad, I’d probably have to say my stirfries. Depending on what ingredients I use, they can cook super fast. Add in some Shanghai noodles at the end, throw in some teriyaki sauce, dinner is served.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  nope, not cheating! The question wasnt “whats YOUR fastest dinner you ever cooked” but simply “whats YOUR faster dinner”   hehe!

In all seriousness, my fastest dinner is grilled chicken breast over top of a salad with lots of veggies and hard boiled eggs. And lets not forget the Hidden Valley Ranch! Yummmmmmm!

Quesadillas.  Depending on what’s in the fridge…cheese, corn, beans, rice, salsa, and/or chicken often make appearances in ours.

OOOooo everything sounds delish! 

I suck at quick! The man likes food for 5 year olds, so I am always tempted with micorwaving him chicken nuggets!

but to keep it less processed and more adult. ….

I like to saute up some  fresh shrimp. heavy cream, spices and throw it over linguini. I add veggies to that or will broil up a thinly cut steak. Presto!

Fastest dinner ever – does this count?

1 package skinless boneless chicken thighs

1/2 bottle of bbq sauce

1/2 can of beer (finish regardless of time of day. Don’t judge).

Dump ingredients in slow cooker, on low, on your way out the door in the morning. Pick up rolls and slaw on the way home, and devour.


Otherwise, I’m a huge fan of tuna melts done on the foreman grill.
