5 tasty one-pot dinners to make when you’re too lazy to wash up

Now that we've entered the month of August, the days are getting slightly shorter and the evenings are getting darker a bit earlier, meaning all we want to do each night is curl up on the couch with a good book and a steaming cup of tea (or a nice cold glass of wine).

Instead of wasting your evenings slaving away over a hot stove, mustering up a homemade meal for you and your family, why not try one of these five tasty one-pan recipes?

The beauty of these simple dishes is that they only require one pan/pot, meaning less fuss, less washing up and more time spent on the couch, catching up on Netflix.

Tangy Chicken and Squash Tray Bake

You can’t go wrong with a chicken tray bake, and this delightful tangy recipe is one of our favourites. Add some chopped spuds for some extra carbs if you’re feeling quite peckish.

Moroccan Lamb Tagine with Herb Couscous

A classic recipe from famed Irish chef Neven Maguire, this Moroccan dish is a fool-proof crowd-pleaser and is the perfect autumn staple.

One-Pan Salmon with Roast Asparagus

One-Pot Chilli Chicken

This is one of our favourite recipes whenever we find ourselves entertaining a few friends or family members — a lovely alternative to your basic barbecue. However, it can easily be halved if you’re serving it up to just your nearest and dearest.
