Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Turkey meatballs with lemony rice

    • BethNH on July 25, 2018

      A very simple one pan meal that works on a weeknight. Turkey meatballs are browned and then finished in a pan with rice flavored with lemon juice and zest. The meatballs can be made the day before which would make this perfect after walking in the door after work.

      We didn't like this much, but we decided it was mostly because we substituted whole wheat bread in the meatballs and brown rice for the white rice. The changes , which we made based on our preferences, made the meatballs heavy and the brown rice took much longer to cook which threw the whole timing off. We wouldn't make this one again.

      It was too lemony for our family. I had to really convince my kids and even my husband to eat it. Will not make again.

  • Modern beef pot pie

    • BethNH on November 18, 2020

      This was shockingly easy and delicious. Beef and vegetables were started on the stove before the liquids were added and the dutch oven was put in the oven for an hour. To finish frozen peas were added and a ring of baguette slices sprinkled with parmesan. This was much better than the sum of its parts. Easy enough to make any time though it does take about 1.5 hours to cook.

  • Lemon-herb cod fillets with crispy garlic potatoes

    • BethNH on September 12, 2018

      I scaled this in half to serve two people. This was quick and easy to pull together. The potatoes were delicious - both my husband and I wished I'd made more. The fish was very good but it didn't absorb any of the lemon flavor from the lemon slices placed on top. Next time I think I'd add some lemon zest before baking. The sprigs of thyme didn't seem to add anything to the flavor - I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to buy fresh thyme for this recipe. We liked this a lot and will certainly have this again.

  • Teriyaki stir-fried beef with green beans and shiitakes

    • BethNH on September 12, 2018

      As with all ATK recipes the direction are meticulous. I had never followed such explicit directions for a stir fry before. The results were quite good - we were all very pleased. It took almost 45 minutes of hands on time from start to finish.

  • Beef taco bake

    • tarae1204 on February 10, 2022

      My children love this recipe and we will surely make it again. It’s funny that it’s described as taking “less time than prepping tacos.” Probably not. But it’s less clean up and easier to eat than crumbly tacos. It’s also a good way to use up stale taco shells. I served it in shredded lettuce and tortilla chips, with sour cream and salsa. The step of microwaving the meat is different but I liked it - less stove splattering, and a tender bite due to less browning.

    • breakthroughc on May 03, 2021

      This was a good weeknight comfort food dish. There is plenty of flavor. I liked it and hubby loved it and voted it a keeper. I use some open tortilla chips instead of the taco shells.

    • breakthroughc on May 04, 2021

      I forgot to add that I could not see the reason to cook the hamburger in the microwave. I put it in a frying pan with the onion and cooked it, added the spice and tomatoes. It is done in the frying pan by the time you have the rest of the ingredients ready so why microwave it?

  • Baked ziti with spinach and sausage

    • tarae1204 on February 10, 2022

      This Dutch oven baked pasta recipe works well as written and incorporates lots of spinach. I used turkey sausage for the meat component. I like how the cheeses are both in and on the casserole.

  • Korean-style beef short ribs with bok choy

    • ldholakia on July 30, 2019

      This is absolutely delicious - in regular rotation at our house. You can skip the bok choy part if for some reason you do not like it, but it makes for a very low-effort side dish.

  • Braised chicken thighs with chard and mustard

    • mgmcewen on November 25, 2020

      This turned out very slimy for us and the chicken didn’t get very tender.

  • Tex-Mex chicken and rice

    • breakthroughc on May 03, 2021

      This dish was really bland and boring, Not a "keeper" at our house.

Publishers Text

Cooking on busy weeknights is a heavy lift—it’s easy to be deterred by time-consuming prep before and a sink full of dirty dishes after. One-pan meals would be a great solution, if they didn’t result in bland, mushy food. The test kitchen solved these challenged to create One-Pan Wonders, a collection of inspired, family-friendly recipes for even the busiest home cooks.

We reimagined classic recipes, streamlined techniques, and honed in on high-flavor ingredients to create 138 fuss-free meals. Recipes are arranged by cookware type, from The Skillet (with recipes such as Roasted Chicken and Stuffing and New York Strip Steaks with Crispy Potatoes and Parsley Sauce), The Dutch Oven (with recipes such as Chicken Stew with Cheddar Biscuits and Quinoa and Vegetable Stew), and The Casserole Dish (including Deviled Pork Chops with Scalloped Potatoes and Hands-Off Spaghetti and Meatballs).
