I have got eggs, bacon, pasta, rice, parmesan, milk, butter and some chicken that needs to be used. Plus regular spices. What should I cook? Suggestions should be healthy.
Here are a few healthy meal ideas that you can make using the ingredients you have listed:
1. Egg and bacon pasta: Cook some pasta according to the package instructions, and while it's cooking, cook some eggs and bacon in a separate pan. Once the pasta is done, drain it and then toss it with the eggs, bacon, and a little bit of grated parmesan cheese.
2. One-pot chicken and rice: Heat some butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add some diced chicken and cook until it's browned on all sides. Add in some cooked rice, a can of diced tomatoes, and any spices you have on hand (such as chili powder, cumin, and paprika). Stir to combine and let everything cook together for a few more minutes.
3. Scrambled eggs with pasta and vegetables: Cook some pasta according to the package instructions and set it aside. In a separate pan, scramble some eggs with a little bit of milk. Once the eggs are cooked, add in the pasta and some diced vegetables (such as bell peppers, onions, and spinach). Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
4. Chicken Parmesan: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pound some chicken breasts until they are about 1/4 inch thick. Coat the chicken in breadcrumbs and then bake for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Top the chicken with some marinara sauce and grated parmesan cheese, and then bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve the chicken with some pasta or a side of vegetables.
I hope these suggestions give you some ideas for healthy meals you can make with the ingredients you have on hand!
