3-Ingredient Chicken Dinner Winners: 12 So-Easy Recipes


Are you like me? Were you raised with some bizarre 1950s concept that says dinner should be a casserole or other main dish you’ve prepped for two hours straight, a salad, and a side of rice or pasta?

Click through, be amazed, then grab a recipe for tonight, and tomorrow night, and the night after that.
