How to Make Skillet Recipes:
There is definitely a basic formula for any type of skillet dinner, and that’s usually picking your protein (chicken, steak, eggs, tofu) and pairing it with a ton of veggies, and possibly a starch like potatoes, pasta or a pre-cooked grain like quinoa or rice. If you’re going with grains, I suggest you cook them ahead of time at the beginning of the week. A rice cooker usually comes in handy here!
If you haven’t prepped ahead, no need to fret! Most of the skillet recipes in this round up come together with a ton of protein and veggies so they’re also low carb. The seasoning is key with these recipes; you’ll be using anything from pre-made fajita or taco seasoning (store bought or make your own!), Italian seasoning, minced garlic, chili flakes and more. There’s usually a super easy way to boost flavour without having to run to the store. Just take a look in your pantry!
In this round up we’ve got everything from tasty skillet chicken recipes to steak fajitas, pasta bakes, breakfast skillets and more! For the oven-based recipes you’ll need a cast-iron skillet but for the others any old frying will do. Get ready for the easiest, fastest dinners of your life with these skillet recipes!
