The best-laid dinner plans are often littered with overly elaborate Pinterest recipes or gourmet ingredients that are left rotting in your vegetable crisper. Why? Because after a long day’s work and a bone-rattling commute, you’re done, and the idea of having to spend another hour cooking and cleaning makes you feel as hopeless as Frodo at the foot of Mount Doom.

We’ve all been there.

But there’s a better way to get a delicious dinner, and it’s not by spending all your disposable income (and then some) on greasy takeout. Behold the one-pot meal, your new secret weeknight weapon.

These bad boys seamlessly transition from the stove top to the oven in one fell swoop—and can even serve as your plate if you’re just not into cleanup either (no judgment).
