12 of the BEST Family Friendly Dinners

12 of the BEST Family Friendly Dinners!

  1. Sweet Potato & Turkey Chili—made originally with ground sirloin, I use ground turkey constantly in place of it, for the beans, use what you have on hand, I love kidney or white beans, and the kids adore this! Tip: If you want some heat for yourself, just sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes right in your own bowl!
  2. Butternut Squash Lasagna—this is always a hit! I tend to sub in turkey sausage for the ground chicken for a little added flavor, but its seriously delish! If you’re not a fan of butternut, this mexican lasagna is always very well received too!
  3. Spaghetti & Meatballs—my 3 year olds favorite, he requests it every week! I make a quick sauce and throw in those meatballs still frozen, cook for about 30 minutes and serve!
  4. Slow Cooker Butter Chicken—plllllease don’t skip the naan with this one! We make this constantly and the fresh naan just takes it over the top!
  5. Chicken Tortilla Soup—my kids always go back for seconds every single time I make this one! Tip: make a double batch, freeze half of it, and you’ll have a dinner ready to go in a pinch!
  6. Sweet Potato Foil Packet Tacos—so fast, easy, & really good!
  7. BBQ Chicken & Pineapple Lettuce Wraps — to make these kid friendly, I serve them to the kids deconstructed, with a side of fruit, and a veggie, usually sliced cucumbers or baby carrots to keep it easy!
  8.  Crockpot Beef Ragu—so much flavor, and it makes a lot so you can get a few different dinners out of this! Tip: we love to use spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles in place of the polenta for a healthier option. If you’re going all in though and aren’t a fan of polenta, this is excellent with cheesy grits!
  9. Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pork Burrito Bowl—I love how easy this is and it has so much flavor! The kids can’t get enough of it, especially with all the pineapple! Tip: I get super lazy sometimes, or I’m short on time and just use a store bough jar of enchilada sauce!
  10. Turkey Bolognese—I use ground turkey in place of ground beef in almost everything, and it’s so good, and so much better for you! We love this bolognese, I love that the kids are getting an extra dose of veggies, and they love any kind of pasta and “red sauce”! Tip: My husband and I will usually eat this over roasted and shredded spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.
  11. Healthier Orange Chicken—its quick to make, so flavorful, & much healthier than takeout, plus the kids love it!
  12. BBQ Chicken Quinoa Bake—easy, delicious, healthy, quick to make and a family favorite!
