If you’re trying to keep dinner super simple and don’t want to go to the grocery store for extra ingredients you might like these seven 2-ingredient recipes for dinner.
Today I’m keeping it super simple with some 2-ingredient recipes for you! All of these recipe can be make with just 2 main ingredients (not counting broth, water, salt and pepper, etc.).
1. Chicken Breasts + Italian Dressing = Easy Italian Chicken
To make: Follow the recipe for 2-ingredient balsamic chicken except use Italian salad dressing in the place of balsamic dressing.
2. Orzo + Garlic Hummus = Creamy Garlic Orzo
To make: Cook orzo according package directions and drain. Stir in desired amount of hummus. To amp it up a bit stir in cooked peas and rotisserie chicken.
3. Pork + Cream of Mushroom Soup = Creamy Mushroom Sauce Pork
To make: you can make this recipe in the Crockpot or the Instant Pot. Follow the instructions here.
4. Chicken + Buffalo Sauce = Buffalo Chicken
To make: Follow the instructions here. If you have lettuce roll up the chicken and make lettuce wraps. Add in bleu cheese for some extra oomph.
5. Potatoes + Canned Chili = Chili Baked Potatoes
To make: Bake potatoes in the oven or use your Instant Pot. Warm chili on the stove and scoop onto the potatoes. Top with any thing you like. For me, sour cream is a must.
6. Frozen Cheese Tortellini + Marinara Sauce = Lazy Man’s Lasagna
To make: Cook tortellini according to package directions. Stir in the pasta sauce and warm through. To make it more like lasagna you can stir in some ricotta cheese, cooked Italian sausage and mozzarella cheese.
7. Beef Roast + Au Jus Packet = French Dip
To make: Add a 2-3 pound chuck roast to your Crockpot or Instant Pot. Pour in 2 cups of beef broth. Sprinkle the au jus packet over the top of the roast. For the slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours and then shred. For the Instant Pot, cover and pressure cook for 60 minutes with a full natural pressure release and then shred. Serve meat on a bun and dip in the pot’s juices.
