In a pinch trying to figure out what to make for dinner and then head off to all your families evening activities? I have the solution for healthy 3 ingredient meals.

Think that three ingredient meals can't be exciting and complex? You're wrong because these meals from Self Magazine look and sound fantastic.

How about Salsa Verde Quinoa with chicken thighs. Just cook the chicken thighs on the stove in a cast iron skillet (a must for every kitchen), remove the bird and add to uncooked quinoa and a jar of salsa verde plus some water. Place the cooked thighs back on top of the ingredients in the skillet, pop it in the oven, and when done this is one fantastic dish.

Not sure what to do with all the tomatoes from your garden? Try the roasted tomato and ricotta sandwich. Roasting your tomatoes makes them even sweeter to eat.

Another healthy 3 ingredient meal is whole wheat pasta with broccoli and parmesan. This is a delicious and very easy "go to" meal.

This one will make your mouth water: sheet pan roast chicken with roasted sweet potatoes and wilted spinach. It looks delicious, so it has to be delicious.

Hummus and avocado sandwich. It does not get much simpler than this. Plus it's vegetarian and dairy free.

Dazzle your family with this one: skillet chicken thighs with pear and cauliflower. Lots of different and delicious flavors and textures.
