Truth, our house is not a Pinterest house or even an Instagram worthy house. On any given day there are dishes in the sink, dirty clothes somewhere and sports equipment laying around. We are just like any family out there struggling with trying to juggle life’s demands.
By the time dinner rolls around mama is T-I-R-E-D! On top of being tired I am also brain dead. Every brain cell has been sucked out of me and I don’t have the strength to come up with some fancy dinner that everyone will eat. #youfeelme So I made a list of 12 easy weeknight dinners that I can put on rotation to make life simpler. These recipes aren’t necessarily winning health awards but they get the job done.

Easy Weeknight Dinners Outfit Details
12 Easy Weeknight Dinners
- I use the shake parm out of the can if I don’t have fresh parm. This recipe sounds really odd but the chicken is so juicy. This is one of my kids’ favorite easy weeknight dinners!
2. Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Foil Packs
- To save extra time, I use real bacon bits instead of cooking bacon.
3. Mississippi Pot Roast
4. Panera Copycat Broccoli Cheddar Soup
- If you want to add protein, I will add rotisserie chicken at the very end.
5. Taco Soup
- I like to add extra water so it is more soup like.
6. Million Dollar Spaghetti
7. Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Stew
8. Bacon, Apple & Pecan Salad
- This is the perfect dish for company, a new mom, etc.
9. Panko Crusted Salmon
- If you need a quick dinner for guests, this will be an immediate crowd pleaser!
10. Pot Roast
11. Pork Chops In Mushroom Gravy
- I like to cook mine in a dutch oven on low heat 275 degrres, for 2-3 hours depending on the thickness of the pork chop.
- I either buy canned mushrooms or the mushroom medley bag from Trader Joe’s and add more mushrooms.
12. Taco Pie
