First I’m featuring just a few of our all time favorite pantry recipes…

Sprite Chicken

If you are looking for a quick, hearty meal, this one is it! It’s called Sprite Chicken only because you add sprite as the liquid, but I’ve made it plenty of times using just apple juice! Grab a few helpers and get the potatoes, onion and chicken chopped up… add in some baby carrots and bacon and you’re set! All my kids LOVE this one!

No Yeast Flatbread (aka Pan Bread)

Only five pantry staples needed to get hot, fresh bread on the table in less than an hour! Flour, baking powder, salt, oil (vegetable oil, olive oil, or avocado oil all work well in the recipe), and water. No sugar or yeast needed. No oven needed. Use this for a mini pizza, or use it for sandwiches, as a taco, or enjoy dipping in this super easy alfredo sauce. There are a ton more ways to use this flatbread!

Cheeseburger Stuffed Shells

This has quickly become a family favorite and the ingredients are sooo simple! Ingredients needed are ground beef, pasta shells, onion, mustard, worcestershire, pepper, ketchup, cheese, and tomato sauce. This is a great one to double and freeze the other half for dinner on another night! It freezes soo good!

Poor Man’s Lasagna

I love lasagna, but it takes so much time and effort. That is why I love this recipe…  simple, delicious, and frugal! You can use our homemade spaghetti sauce recipe if you don’t have any jars of pasta sauce on the shelf!

Baked Pancake Squares

These pancakes are delicious and easy. It is a fun new way to make and eat pancakes – and the maple glaze will make your real maple syrup last even longer. Another hit with the fam!

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

I love this recipe because it is so versatile! You can use chicken OR turkey… and it’s a hearty all in one dish that doesn’t take too much time to throw together either!

Rotel Chicken

Add some pop to your chicken with this recipe! Make up a batch and enjoy tacos, salad, fajitas, and you can even throw it in soup!

Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

Comfort food at it’s best… and you can make it in your instant pot too!

One Pan Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies

I love a classic chicken and vegetable dinner. And this one is my favorite because of the honey garlic marinade. Amazing and even better that it’s all baked in one sheet pan!

Cake Mix Banana Bread

This is a simple and simply delicious banana bread recipe that only requires cake mix, bananas, and eggs!

Cinnamon Popcorn

This is a guilt-free snack or treat that is so easy to make – perfect snack for movie night at home!

Pizza Dough

Our family loves making pizzas, mostly because this dough recipe is so so easy and super good. In fact, the dough is ready in less than 30 minutes!

Whole Wheat Bread

This is the easiest and best whole wheat bread that I have ever dared to make.

Ham and Scalloped Potatoes

Potatoes, ham, broccoli, and cheese… all rolled up into one delightfully easy dish!

Stewed Apples

Another easy and frugal dessert idea – stewed apples! All you need is apples, butter, brown sugar, sugar, cornstarch, water, and cinnamon!

That’s just a small sampling of the awesome pantry recipes we have for you!
