Last Minute Dinner Ideas For A Perfect Night In

Quick Lamb Kebabs

It's tasty too – minced lamb is mixed with spices, chilli and fresh coriander, shaped into sausages and grilled. Serve in wraps with a dollop of mint yogurt and thinly-sliced red onions.

Salsa Verde Salmon

salsa verde requires anchovies, but this one is a twist on the original, using a tin of sardines combined with parsley, capers and breadcrumbs. It's all served with miso-roasted onions.

One-Pan Pizza

The base for this pizza doesn't contain yeast, so there's no rising involved and it tastes way better than a takeaway. The pizza starts off cooked in a frying pan, to give a crisp base, before being finished off in the oven.

Chicken Casserole

Meltingly tender chicken thighs cooked in stock and white wine with bacon, finished with cream and mushrooms, is high on our midweek favourites list.

Sweet And Sour Prawns

Crisp battered prawns, chunks of pineapple, peppers and cashew nuts are all combined in this easy stir-fry, made mostly with store cupboard ingredients.

Filo Fish Pie

A classic fish pie is a labour of love, but this version with prawns, cod and smoked haddock is ready in around an hour. The sauce consists of a thickened stock, so there's no cream or white sauce to make here.

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken pot pie is a meal in itself, with chunks of juicy meat, potatoes and vegetables .It takes a bit of time to cook but you could prepare the chicken filling the day before.
