Very often we are extremely busy and it seems like we don't have the time to cook a proper meal but there are plenty of quick, easy and tasty recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less and I like to keep a list of them on hand for those busy nights. Below you will find some of my favourite meals that can be made in 30 minutes or less and none of them sacrifice anything in the way of flavour! These quick and easy meals range from the staple chicken and pasta dishes, to soups, salads, burgers, pizzas, fish, Chinese takeout fakeout and even a few kid friendly meals. Many of these recipes use ingredients that are already in your pantry or freezer so you really just need to throw in some fresh ingredients like veggies or a salad for a side dish and you are good to go. The next time you are in a rush to get something ready for dinner on a busy night, don't reach for the phone to order takeout, reach for your list of your favourite 30 minute meals.
