Time – one of those things we all wish we had more of especially when it comes to getting home and getting dinner on the table. Here are 5 quick weeknight meals that will help you get dinner on the table fast so that everyone can sit down and eat together!

  • Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings  – Throw the ingredients in the crock pot and let this meal cook while you are gone for the day. When you get home, turn up the heat and add the dumplings and dinner will be ready in no time!

  • Tomato Penne Pasta – This pasta dish is easy to prepare after a long day. Boil the pasta and then dress it up with some garlic and tomatoes. If you have shredded chicken in the freezer, which I tend to, you can thaw that out quickly in the microwave and add a little protein to this dish.

  • Quesadillas – This is one of those meals that we turn to when we need a fill in meal or something incredibly fast. I keep onions, peppers, and shredded chicken in my freezer. I also keep flour tortillas and plenty of cheese on hand so that we can fix this for a quick dinner or even lunch on the weekends!
