RECIPE | 7 One Pan Dinners to Try This Summer

Honestly, there’s something so satisfying with only using one pan to make a meal. Maybe it’s the efficiency of it or maybe it’s the fact that my dishwasher can take the night off after we are done eating. Either way, there’s something magical about these meals during a busy work week.

If you’ve been following along, you know one of my goals for 2019 is to share more easy meal ideas with super simple ingredients.

I’ve been working on this post for a while now (like a solid month it’s been sitting in my blog drafts) because I had to test, try and retest all the below recipes to make sure there were no steps I missed when sharing these recipes with you all! In fact, you can hop on over to my Instagram page (@cookithealthy) and you can see all the behind the scenes videos of me making these recipes under the story highlight “One Pan Dinners”

1.Lemon-Butter Tilapia + Roasted Brussel Sprouts


-2 – 4 Tilapia Filets

-20oz or 2 – 3 cups halved brussel sprouts

-A Tbls. of butter for each Tilapia Filet you make

-1 – 2 fresh lemons, sliced (I add 2 slices per fish pouch)

-Salt & Lemon Pepper to season


-Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees

-Season each tilapia filet on both sides with salt & lemon pepper (if you don’t have this, regular pepper is fine too)

-Place each filet in a piece of foil that’s big enough to make a closed pouch around the fish. Then toss in a couple slices of lemon, 1 Tbls. of butter (I like Vital Farms Sea Salted Butter) and close up the pouch. Repeat for each filet of fish you have.

-On a large sheet pan with sides, set your fish pouches on one side of the pan and add your halved brussel sprouts to the other. Drizzle the brussel sprouts with some EVOO & season with S & P or any other seasonings you prefer. Gentle stir them around with a spoon.

-Place the sheet pan in the oven and set a timer for 30 minutes.

2.Italian Chicken Tenders + Roasted Tomatoes & Cauliflower Gnocchi with Pesto


-1lb. Chicken Tenders

-1/2 cup Light Italian Dressing

-1 Tbls. of Avocado Oil

-1 1/2 cups Cherry Tomatoes

-Salt & Lemon Pepper to season


-Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees

4.Pan-Seared Salmon with Dill Yogurt Sauce + Garlic Sauteed Spinach


-Four 4oz Salmon Filets

-1 Lb. Baby New Potatoes

-2 Tbls. Avocado Oil

-2 cloves garlic, chopped

-1 fresh lemon, juiced

-6 – 8 cups fresh spinach

-1 Tbls. EVOO

-2 Tbls. Fresh Dill

-8 oz Plain Greek Yogurt

-2 tsp. lemon zest

-Salt & Lemon Pepper to season


For the Yogurt Dill Sauce

-In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, dill, EVOO and lemon zest. Set in your fridge until the salmon is ready.

For the Salmon + Spinach

-In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, add in half of your avocado oil (which is good for high-heat cooking) and once the pan is heated, add in your salmon filets pink side down first and sear for 3 minutes. Flip over to the skin side and sear for another 3-4 minutes. Remove and set aside.

-Turn the saute pan heat down to medium-low. Add in the remaining avocado oil, fresh spinach, garlic and lemon juice. Saute until spinach is wilted. Sprinkle a little salt and lemon pepper to season.

-On a plate, add on the spinach, then one of your salmon filets and then drizzle with the yogurt-dill sauce!

6.Simple Lemon-Garlic Zoodles with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes


-1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes

-4-5 zucchinis, spiralized

-2 Tbls. Vital Farms Salted Butter

-2 Tbls. minced garlic

-1/2 a lemon, juiced

-Salt & Lemon Pepper to season

Optional topping: Crumbled Feta Cheese, Grilled Chicken, Baked Salmon


-In a medium non-stick skillet, add in the butter and tomatoes. Season with a little salt + pepper and blister the tomatoes over high-heat until they are softened or brown on each side just slightly. Takes about 5 minutes.

-Spiralize all your zucchinis.

-Turn the heat down to medium, add in the garlic and zoodles. Saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes.

-Finally, spritz on the lemon juice, season a bit more if you prefer. Give one of your zoodles a taste-test to make sure it is cooked all the way through, but still holds its shape.

-Add to a bowl and enjoy with some of the optional topping ideas above!
