Make one of our top-rated casserole recipes tonight for a delicious dinner.
For a healthy, comforting dinner, try one of our best casserole recipes. Many of our lightened-up casserole recipes can be made ahead and reheated for an easy weeknight dinner. From Chicken Potpie to Tuna Noodle Casserole, these popular casserole recipes are perfect for a healthy dinner to feed your whole family.

 

 

Creamy Chicken Potpie
An irresistible crisp (but easy) phyllo crust tops these homey individual chicken potpies. Make a double batch and freeze extras to have on hand anytime. Serve with a butterhead lettuce salad with red onion and white-wine vinaigrette……..

 
Skillet Tuna Noodle Casserole
Known as Tuna-Pea Wiggle to some, this family-friendly tuna noodle casserole tends to be made with canned soup and whole milk, which means high fat and sodium. We remedy this by making our own creamy mushroom sauce with nonfat milk thickened with a bit of flour. Look for whole-wheat egg noodles—they have more fiber than regular egg noodles (but this dish will work well and taste great with either)……..

 
Individual Brussels Sprout & Potato Frittatas
Brussels sprouts and preshredded potatoes make these oversized muffin-shaped frittatas hearty. They’re as good served warm for dinner as they are at room temperature for lunch. Pair with a mixed green salad with cherry tomatoes and buttermilk dressing……..

A good one to remember when using skewers…..

 
When using foods with different cooking times (such as shrimp and beef), don’t combine them on the same skewer. Instead, make skewers of just shrimp or just beef, start cooking the beef first, and then combine them on a serving platter.

Make-Ahead Casserole RecipesEatingWell2

Healthy casserole recipes to make ahead for easy meals.
Make sure you have a quick and easy dinner ready to go next time you need dinner in a hurry: cook one of these delicious make-ahead casserole recipes and pop it in your refrigerator or freezer. All you need to do is reheat these make-ahead casserole recipes and dinner is ready. Try a chicken and rice casserole with mushrooms and green beans or our broccoli cheese casserole with lean ground beef and a crunchy potato topping—both easy to make ahead when you have the time and to reheat when you don’t. Whichever casserole recipe you choose, you’ll have a satisfying meal on the table in no time.

 

 

Broccoli, Beef & Potato Hotdish
This easy casserole, full of ground beef, roasted broccoli and topped with hash browns, was inspired by the classic Minnesota Tater Tot hotdish. Roasting the broccoli before adding it to the casserole gives the whole dish a much more complex and exciting flavor, but it’s by no means necessary. If you want to keep it simple, skip roasting the broccoli (Step 2) and use 6 cups frozen broccoli, thawed, in its place (omit 1 tablespoon oil, as well)……

 
Curried Chicken Thighs with Buttery Croutons
These saucy curried chicken thighs makes a great dish for a big easy family supper. There’s plenty of curry sauce, so serve with brown rice or whole-wheat egg noodles. We call for boneless, skinless chicken thighs here, but we’ve also tried it with bone-in thighs and it worked wonderfully……

 
Chicken, Mushroom & Wild Rice Casserole
In Minnesota, chicken, mushrooms and wild rice are often bound together in a casserole with cream of mushroom soup. We forgo the sodium-rich canned soup and make a light, creamy sauce that gets depth of flavor from dry sherry and Parmesan cheese. If you already have cooked chicken, use 4 cups and skip Step 2…….

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Coffee-Braised Brisket

A coffee, brown sugar, and paprika rub gives this slow cooker brisket a complex sweet-and-spicy flavor. Use a brown sugar substitute to bring this already low-carb meal down to just 5 grams of carb per serving…….

 
Aztec Corn Chowder

In just five minutes, throw together a creamy, fiber-rich corn chowder that’s short on carbs but not on flavor. Simply toss the ingredients in the slow cooker for 5 to 6 hours. Enjoy a 1/2-cup serving for just 15 grams of carb…….

Slow Cooking…..

 

For the best results, fill a slow cooker between one-half and two-thirds full. Go ahead and cook big roasts and whole chickens; just make sure you use a large crock and that the lid fits snugly on top. As they say “Set it and forget it”.

Chicken……..

 

Chicken breasts are always thicker at one end, and this unevenness means that the thicker end will just take longer to cook. Next time you prepare them try pounding it out or butterflying it, you’ll have a piece of meat that cooks quicker and more evenly.

Get-Skinny Dinners to Help You Lose Weight

Delicious, low-calorie dinner recipes to help you slim down.EatingWell2
If you’re trying to slim down, our low-calorie dinners to help you lose weight are delicious, filling meals. Many of these light and healthy dinner recipes feature lean protein, whole grains and salad—dinner components that can leave you feeling satisfied (find out why here). Try our Quick Chicken Cacciatore for a low-calorie dinner recipe perfect for an easy weeknight meal or Aparagus-Mushroom Mini Lasagnas for a filling dinner.

 

 

Quick Chicken Cacciatore
This version of the classic Italian recipe, chicken cacciatore, is done in half the time of most traditional versions, but is still full of rich flavor thanks to plenty of mushrooms, tomatoes and herbs…..

 
Loaded Spinach Salad
Like many spinach salads, this one features lots of chopped-up hard-boiled egg. But since most of the calories in an egg are in the yolk, this recipe uses just two whole eggs, plus the whites from six additional eggs, for a satisfying spinach salad that keeps the calories in check…..

 
Charred Tomato & Chicken Tacos
Charring tomatoes in a cast-iron skillet yields smoky results…..
