Many of the simplest and most delicious meals you will find here on The Busy Foodie website are stovetop recipes.

Although small kitchen appliances such as electric pressure cookers (like the Instant Pot) and air fryers are popular, cooking on your stove top can be just as quick and easy!

The stovetop recipes on The Busy Foodie website focus on convenience and easy cleanup. For example, many are made in just one pot or skillet!

For an easy weeknight meal, be sure to try One Pot Lemon Ricotta Pasta or Skillet French Onion Chicken Breasts. Both are delicious stovetop meals that come together in less than 30 minutes, with super simple cleanup!

Most of the recipes you’ll see here use basic pantry staples, and they come together in a snap!
