Let’s face it school day dinners are usually hectic and snatched in-between rushing from school to football or dance class or play dates. Dinners need to be tasty, quick, easy and pack in some vegetables. We’ve rounded up a few of our favourites for a week of easy school day dinners.
Easy Kids Dinner Recipe – Baked crunchy chicken dippers
You can prep these crunchy chicken dippers ahead of time and leave them in the fridge until ready to cook – serve with oven baked potato wedges and a traffic light salad which always goes down well with kids.
Easy Kids Dinner Recipe – Quick BBQ pasta
You can throw a pot of BBQ pasta together in just over 10 minutes. Perfect for those really busy nights. We like our BBQ pasta made with slices of smoked sausage, peas and corn, but this is one of those recipes you can mix and match to suit your own tastes.
Easy Kids Dinner Recipe – Savoury mince
Great little recipe that’s nice and versatile. Our savoury mince recipe can be served with cheesy mash, in a taco as a sloppy joe or use to top baked potatoes. I make this ahead of time and just reheat when ready to eat.
Easy Kids Dinner Recipe – Baked chicken chimichangas
Another yummy recipe you can prep ahead of time and just cook when you’re ready to eat. Or you can even eat our chicken chimichangas cold. Serve with lots of colourful salad and pot of sour cream and salsa for dipping. Perfect for a keeping little-ones full.
Easy Kids Dinner Recipe – French bread pizza
Total weeknight favourite – French Bread pizza is literally ready in under 15 minutes and you can swap and change the toppings depending on what’s in and what you like. A good dinner recipe for getting the kids involved with the cooking. Serve with a pot of beans or slaw for extra veggies.
