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

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!
