Q I am searching for recipes to make that are quick and simple for dinner. Something to make once everyone gets home at the end of the day. Can you help?

- Jennifer, WI


Coming home after a long day and getting dinner on the table can be a challenge. One of the best ways to make dinner quick and simple is to have your ingredients on hand ahead of time and another is to use ingredient shortcuts.

I'd recommend three easy, family-friendly recipes that use shortcuts like new Land O Lakes® Sauté Express® Sauté Starter. For instance, Garlic Chicken & Potatoes is a one-dish meal. You simply sauté chicken in a skillet, then add green beans and potatoes to the same pan. Kids love this dish and it takes only 30 minutes from pan to table. Or try Lemon Pepper Fish Tacos. Pre-shredded coleslaw mix is one of the simple shortcuts that help you prepare this tasty weeknight dish in less than 20 minutes. If you like stir-fry, Pork & Veggie Sauté is another meal made easy by using pre-cut stir-fry veggies and adding flavor with Land O Lakes® Garlic & Herb Sauté Express® Sauté Starter.

Be sure to let us know how you and your family like these new recipes!
