My main goal when starting Running to the Kitchen was to make healthy, wholesome food approachable and fun! Nutritious meals don’t have to be boring and quality ingredients go a long way when putting together a meal. This collection of main dish recipes has you and your family covered for lunch and dinner.

Whether you’re in the mood for chicken, beef, turkey or seafood there are plenty of entrees to choose from.

Some of these main dish recipes can be made in as little as 15 minutes like this buffalo turkey cauliflower skillet while others are perfect for simmering on the stove for a few hours when you have the extra time on weekends like these apple cider braised lamb shanks.

There are sheet pan meals like this maple mustard chicken and one pot wonders like turkey skillet mac and cheese for those who don’t want to make a mess in the kitchen too.

Don’t forget about dessert afterwards and definitely check out the full recipe index to see the full list of main dishes and find one you love!
