Who has time to really cook these days? You’re living in the 21st century and life moves pretty fast. In the mornings, you’re usually running out of the house for work, and once you get home, you’re so exhausted that you can barely even think about blinking.
Before you call Uber Eats, let me show you 5 quick and easy meals that you can make in literally 5 minutes!
Buffalo Chicken Wrap
I like this recipe for lunch or even dinner because it’s very easy to make. It’s tasty and really keeps me full.
This recipe calls for 2 cups of cooked shredded chicken, ½ cup of buffalo sauce or hot sauce + 2 tablespoons of melted butter (I think that the buffalo sauce tastes 10 times better), 1 cup of shredded lettuce (I use spinach instead), ¼ cup of ranch or blue cheese dressing, and 4 medium flour tortillas.
Additionally, you can add tomato onion and shredded cheese.
All you have to do is mix the cooked chicken with the buffalo sauce, then pour this mixture onto the tortilla, then pour on the dressing, lettuce (or spinach), and the optional ingredients (if you would like to add them).
Wrap that burrito and your good to go! A tasty burrito bursting with delicious flavor!
This recipe requires absolutely NO COOKING! It’s simple and easy to make, with simple ingredients, right in your own kitchen!
This recipe calls for 1 handful of maple granola, 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/2 sliced banana, 1/4 cup fresh raspberries, and 2 tbsp honey. Just add the yogurt to a small glass and then top it off with your granola, banana slices, raspberries and a bit of honey.
This is a can be a quick and easy dish to make for breakfast when your own the go. It shouldn’t take too long to prepare. There are many types of other parfaits that involve lots of fruits like strawberries, blueberries, pineapple and more!
You can also add on other yummy treats like chocolate bar pieces, Oreos, M&M’s and even whipped cream!
Easy Cheesy Microwave Macaroni
This might be a cool side dish for a small appetite.
Just get a half a cup of pasta, and pour in half a cup of water, 3 tablespoons of milk, and salt to taste. Put the pasta in the microwave for about a minute, then, add a 1/4 cup of shredded cheese, and put in the microwave for another minute, and just add a bit of chive and you’re done.
I personally would want to put shreds of buffalo chicken on top, just for a bit more flavor.
Homemade Mozzarella Sticks
This is another quick snack that I think could tithe you over for a bit. Just roll each cheese stick in an egg roll wrapper and then put into a pot with oil that is already boiling until brown, and that’s it! You have a tasty, cheesy and quick & easy snack. Serve with marinara sauce.
I think that this could be one of those snacks where you’re not that hungry enough to want a real meal but perhaps a bit too hungry to only consume chips.
Barbecue Chicken Nachos
This is another great snack, it might even be good to share with friends…or not. It’s a bit more hearty than the mozzarella sticks perhaps.
Grab an empty bowl and dump in a cup of Rotisserie Chicken and 3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce, then mix. Grab 2 handfuls of tortilla chips, and pour on the mixture on top. Then, add on a cup of cheese, 1/4 cup of pico de gallo, and ¼ of a cup of green onions. Put this in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes and voila! A tasty a dish snack for you and frien…I mean yourself.
It’s optional to add on a spoonful of guacamole and sour cream.
