You Won't Believe How Simple—Yet Delicious—These Dinners Are
Fast and easy, with a miniature ingredient list: These dishes have it all.
The Salmon with a Surprise Secret Ingredient
You don't need much to make this intensely flavorful, healthful dish, because each component pulls its weight, and then some. The hero is bourbon; a spoonful of the spirit mixed with honey, a couple of spices, lime juice and zest delivers a sweet punch with serious depth. Spoon the glaze over the fish, broil for eight minutes and you're done.

A Dish Where Faster Is Actually Better
If you're in a hurry, we've got good news: This hearty vegetarian meal, a tumble of stewy leeks and chickpeas, is best when you just barely cook it. Ten to 15 minutes is all you need to soften the vegetables slightly but still keep them firm and springy. A burst of lemon enhances the flavor.

A No-Dredging, No-Searing, No-Carving Chicken Masterpiece
Finally: a one-pan dish that works every time (and also happens to be budget-friendly). All you need are chicken drumsticks and thighs, a handful of cherry or grape tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. Everything roasts on one sheet pan, and the tomatoes blister and wilt, creating a sweet, chunky sauce.

The Mexican Dinner You Probably Haven't Tried Before
This delicious main course takes the key ingredients of huevos rancheros—eggs and salsa—and applies them to pasta, so the egg yolks and salsa turn into a silky sauce for spaghetti. It's salty, creamy, a little spicy—and comes together in fewer than 20 minutes.
