2. Weight Watchers Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

27 Fast and Simple Healthy Dinner Recipes

If you cook the chicken in a slow cooker all day long these buffalo chicken taquitos come together pretty fast. Other options are to have a chicken already cooked in t he fridge, a rotisserie chicken, or even canned chicken works with this.  Add the warm chicken in a bowl with cream cheese, buffalo sauce,  and stir. Stuff  the chicken in a flour tortilla and bake them in the oven. I used the broiler to get them a little extra crispy on top. Then start dipping. Finger food is perfect for game day. It’s a lot like buffalo chicken dip wrapped inside a tortilla.

6. One Pot Spinach Artichoke Pasta

27 Fast and Simple Healthy Dinner Recipes

I use fresh spinach in this recipe but, in a pinch, you can substitute it with frozen spinach. Just be sure to squeeze all the extra moisture out of it before adding it to the recipe. Either way, it is one of the best spinach and artichoke recipes you will find.

27 Fast and Simple Healthy Dinner Recipes

The dressing has so many flavours packed into it, that when you fry your chicken with it AND dress your salad with the rest of it, you won’t know what to do with yourself. No only does it contain the obvious balsamic and olive oil, get ready for your mind to be blown with a sprinkle of Italian herbs, a kick of garlic and a hint of honey. You will be table top dancing, along with your taste buds.

8. Balsamic Glazed Steak Tips & Mushrooms

27 Fast and Simple Healthy Dinner Recipes

Maybe you’ve never heard of steak tips before, or maybe you’ve been eating them this whole time. I was introduced to the inexpensive cut by my husband’s New England-based family. It’s an inexpensive cut of beef that has a loose-grain texture, perfect for soaking up marinades like this soy and balsamic one that’s salty and tangy at the same time. Throw some mushrooms into the pan after the meat’s ready, add some more vinegar and a touch of butter, and you’re left with a glossy sauce to drag each bite of steak through.

9. Perfect Herb Roasted Chicken

27 Fast and Simple Healthy Dinner Recipes

The sauce is truly the best part, but if you want to skip it I’ll forgive you for sure. You add butter at the end which really makes it silky and wonderful. A good sauce is easy to make but make sure you skim the fat off.
