The days of complicated dinners are over. We asked SJ readers for some of their go-to dinner recipes to make finishing up your day a little easier.

Chicken and penne in vodka sauce – I bake the chicken in vodka sauce for 20 minutes at 450 degrees, and while the chicken is cooking, boil water and add pasta. Easy, delicious and no prepping necessary.
Elise Ethington, Burlington

Jalapeño chicken sausage, cruciferous crunch and half a bag of sweet potatoes – I roast the sweet potatoes, sauté the crunch and sausage before adding the taters and seasoning accordingly.
Elizabeth Adams, Marlton

Chicken breasts with some defrosted mixed vegetables. Quick and simple to maximize your time binging on Netflix.
Dave Pallas, Riverton

Pasta is my family’s go-to. About five times a year, my dad spends a whole Saturday making a big pot of gravy that gets divided up and frozen. When we need a quick meal, we throw some pasta in a pot and thaw the gravy. Tastes like it took hours!
Andy Nocera, Berlin

My easiest (but still healthy) meal is salmon and a sweet potato. I put salt, pepper and lemon on the fish and bake it on a cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes. The sweet potato I wrap in a paper towel and microwave for around five minutes.
Mandy Miceli, Voorhees

Pasta with meat sauce, sloppy joes, tacos; basically anything with ground beef. It’s the easiest thing to cook quickly.
Leah Marie Freiling, Clementon

Carnitas – it’s a Mexican comfort food, and one of my favorites. I learned how to make them in Mexico.
Pat Fisher, Burlington

Breakfast for dinner: eggs, bacon, toast.
Michael Nocella, Voorhees

Chicken tacos with sour cream and lime coleslaw. It’s only five ingredients, plus seasoning, and it only takes 10 minutes to make. It can be put on rice or in traditional taco shells, and it’s fresh and healthy!
Elyse Convery Viana, Riverside
