Top 10 Easy Skillet Meals - Favorite Recipes for the Skillet


Skillet main dish recipes are usually extra easy to prepare and quick to cook. Here are some of my favorite skillet recipes, including main dish chicken and pork recipes and a few all-in-one skillet meals.

1. Skillet Cranberry Pork Chops

3. Beef and Mushrooms in Sour Cream Sauce

Cooked noodles complete this flavorful sirloin and mushroom mixture. Ingredients include sirloin, mushrooms, onion, beef broth, and red wine, along with seasonings and sour cream.

4. Chili Beef Burgers

This skillet burger mixture is easy to prepare, and makes delicious sandwiches with split rolls or hamburger buns.

5. Paprika Chicken With Sour Cream

Chicken pieces are cooked with onions, paprika, chicken broth, and sour cream for a flavorful family main dish. Serve this dish with hot buttered noodles or potatoes, along with green beans or steamed broccoli.

6. Garlic Chicken and Shrimp

A delicious combination, serve this garlic chicken and shrimp over hot cooked pasta and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.

7. Tex-Mex Mac 'n Cheese

This is a delicious skillet macaroni and cheese made with ground beef and tomatoes, along with easy prepared macaroni and cheese. A great one pot meal the whole family will love.

8. Pork With Maple Glazed Apples and Sweet Onions

The apples and onions cook slowly to caramelize, so you'll want to make them ahead of time or start a bit early. Replace the apples and onions with a flavorful chutney or relish if you're in a hurry. Use boneless pork chops or country style ribs in this tasty recipe.

9. Veal Scallops With Lemon and Capers

I love these tangy veal scallops with angel hair pasta and steamed veggies. Use thin veal scallops or pound thicker cutlets to about 1/4-inch thickness.

10. Robin's Skillet Chicken

This is a chicken dinner in one skillet, with chicken pieces, vegetables, and cooked rice.
