Some one-pot meal ideas include simple beef pot roast, six-can chicken tortilla soup and Italian chicken skillet. Each meal requires less than an hour of preparation and cooking time.
Simple beef pot roast requires pre-browning a beef roast and sauteeing vegetables in the same pot. Juices form during the cooking process to create a rich sauce with no additional steps required. The six-can chicken tortilla soup includes black beans, corn, canned chicken, chicken broth and diced tomatoes. Green chiles add heat to the dish. Finally, the Italian chicken skillet incorporates cubed chicken breast, pasta, fresh spinach, garlic and herbs. The pasta cooks with the other ingredients, eliminating the need to pre-cook and strain noodles.
