This list of 6 Ingredient Dinner Recipes is dedicated to meals that require very little ingredients, little effort, but lots of flavor!

Six ingredients or less Delicious Dinner Recipes

We all have those busy weeknights where we either don’t want to cook, or just simply do not have the time to make a lavish spread, and that’s okay! Being busy is a good thing, and that shouldn’t hinder your ability to make a yummy meal. I am so excited to share this list of 6-Ingredient Dinner Recipes. Each recipe only has 6 ingredients to pull everything together. You read that right, only 6! Even when your plate is full of work, laundry, the kids, the pets, the spouse, you can make sure everyone at your table has a full plate of a delicious dinner without feeling overwhelmed.


One of the reasons I have compiled this list of delightful dinners together is that most of them can be prepared and ready to eat in just 30 minutes. I know how many busy moms and dads are out there, and this is list is curated just for you! There are those few recipes that do take longer than a half an hour, but the ingredient size stays the same. 


If you need to stretch your pocketbook a little bit this month, you can find plenty of dinners that are affordable, flavorful, and that your family will enjoy. This is also a great set of dinners that are perfect for college students! If you want to feel comfortable knowing that your student can have a hearty meal while living the campus life, this is the recipe list to give to them.


Yes! So many of these dinners are great to either double up the recipe and put in your freezer for another night. That way, all you need to do is preheat your oven, bake, and you have a delicious dinner ready to go! I recommend this with the casserole recipes especially. There are a few other meals on here as well that are great for leftovers, or meal prepping for the week.
