Wanting to throw together an easy and delicious weeknight meal is something that just about everyone under the sun has in common. We all want something mouth watering at the end of the day, especially with kids going back to school and summer coming to an end! While I might not be a mom, I’m very familiar with putting a great meal on the table in basically no time flat. Being a private chef for 4 years gave me plenty of practice, sometimes kids (or husbands or yourselves for that matter) are starving NOW and dinner has got to be ready in a flash! And I’ve also had plenty of experience being that kid who wants to eat approximately 10 minutes ago. So I feel for all parties involved, no one likes to be hungry. And some combination of chicken, pasta and cheese is usually the answer.
I’ve rounded up 10 Easy Weeknight Meals that are my absolutely favorites (links below) and that are perfect for any time of year – especially right now during back to school season when we can all use a little extra flavor at the end of the day.
- Guacamole Chicken Burgers
- Mexican Lasagna
- Mexican Shredded Chicken
- Goat Cheese and Shrimp Pasta
- Greek Chicken Stuffed Pitas
- Chicken Parmesan Pizza
- Spicy Peanut Noodles
- Red Pepper Pasta
- Turkey Spaghetti Bake
These are all tried and true favorites that I know you guys are going to love.
And for those of you who watched Breaking Bad last night… who on EARTH turns down table side guacamole? I can’t even handle that as a possibility in life – table side guac is a must. Other than that, last nights episode was so freaking good. Those writers are brilliant. I’m not sure how I’ll ever go on after this season wraps.
Omg, these all look so delicious and I love the fact that these are easy and doable on a busy weeknight!
Omg, these look delicious! I love that these are easy for a busy weeknight!

Thank you for planning the next 2 weeks of meals for me!!
I want that spaghetti bake!! Everything looks wonderful!
Thanks for a great list! I want all the things!
Are you still a private chef? Did you love it/hate it? I’m considering it. I’m not sure how to proceed at this point, though. Thanks 🙂
I’m not anymore – but I absolutely LOVED it!!! Feel free to email me if you have any questions
This is a great list! I know there’s usually at least one day a week where I absolutely need a quick and easy, yet delicious meal.
Great dinner ideas!
What a great group of weeknight meals! Love them!!
Ha! I seriously thought Hank was going to explode when the waiter brought it up a second time!
Yummy weeknight meals!! We love avocados or guac on burgers 🙂 Pinned!
Such a great list!!
I don’t watch BB, but at least when it ends…you’ll still have avocados.
Oh yeah, this is brilliant! All about easy these days.
I made the Guacamole Chicken Burgers for dinner last night. I used ground turkey (which I had on hand) and made the recipe into 12 sliders. It was really yummy! My husband and daughter also loved this dinner. The burgers were extremely flavorful by themselves but the addition of guacamole is a real winner. Thanks for this easy, quick and delicious recipe.
Yay!! Love hearing that 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it
LOVE ’em all girl!
What a lineup. They all look great!
WHAT!? Chicken parmesan on pizza!? YUM! Gotta try that one.
