Put a pot of salted water on for the pasta and if the shrimp have to thaw out put them in a bowl of water.

While the coming to a boil and the thawing out are going on lets put together a salad for tonight’s veggie and chop up the garlic. Caprese Salad would be our choice for our Italian mood dinner.

The salad is ready, the shrimp have thawed out and the pasta water is boiling.

Put the pasta in the pot of water and stir it right away to keep it from sticking together. Remember to stir it a few times as it cooks.

Put on a skillet that is large enough to handle all the shrimp laid out flat. Set the burner at medium and add the olive oil and 1/2 of the butter. When the butter has melted put in the garlic.

 

As soon as you get the fragrance of the garlic cooking add the salt, pepper, parsley and red pepper flakes.

Stir it all together and lay the shrimp out in the skillet. Give the shrimp just half a minute to a minute a side depending on their size.

Then put in the rest of the butter, squeeze in the lemon juice and add the white wine. Oh, and a splash of the pasta water

One Pot Chicken Tenders Meal

You and your gang will like this one. You can substitute pasta or potatoes for the rice and just about any vegetable for the peas. Minute rice and peas get your One Pot Chicken Tenders Meal on the table pretty quick and make a good flavor combo.

First put a sauté pan or a large skillet on at Medium High. Add the chicken broth, the rice, salt and Pepper. Mix it up and bring the liquid up to a boil then lower the heat to keep a fast simmer. Add a little water if the broth dries up before the rice is done. When the rice is chewable but still firm put the tenders in. Squeeze in the lemon juice and toss in the rind. Sprinkle with the spices and mix everything together. Turn the chicken tenders over a couple of times as they cook.

Frozen peas cook real fast so wait until the chicken is firm to a poke or reach 165°F on an instant read meat thermometer Then add the peas and mix them in. Stir a few times as the peas cook.

Pork Tenderloin One Pot Meal with Peppers and Onions – Quick and Easy – 25 Minutes – Gluten Free

Pork tenderloin One Pot Meal

You can do this one sooo many different ways. Of course the first that comes to mind is the traditional New Jersey style “Sausage and peppers” or you could substitute pieces of chicken instead of the pork tenderloin and on and on…….

……..More often than not the leftovers are just the veggies and it still works just fine for lunch the next day…..

…….This is your go to method to put together a quick and easy one pot meal on a busy weeknight and still have it turn out great.

Using a sharp knife remove the silver skin from the pork tenderloin and cut it crossways into about 3/4″ pieces. We usually get the pork tenderloins that have been coated with herbs and spices and vacuum sealed. Put a large skillet on at medium high with enough olive oil to generously coat the bottom. The veggies are going to absorb some of the oil so you may need to add a little more oil during the cooking process.

Pork Tenderloin One Pot Meal-poppopcooks.com-one pot-quick and easy-gluten free-

While the skillet is heating up cut up the veggies into the size chunks that you want. We like them like this……

Pork Tenderloin One Pot Meal-2-poppopcooks.com-one pot-gluten free-quick and easy

The potatoes and the meat are going to take a little bit longer to cook so let’s put them in first and let them get about five minutes head start. Salt, pepper, dried basil and if you want it a little spicier some red pepper flakes. Toss them a few times as they cook.

Pork Tenderloin One Pot meal-3-poppopcooks.com-One Pot-quick and easy-gluten free

Add the rest of the veggies and toss it all together. Then toss a few more times as it all cooks.

Then serve up and enjoy your Pork Tenderloin One Pot Meal. Top it off with some grated parmesan cheese. A nice smooth red wine like a Pinot Noir goes good with this quick and easy one pot meal.
