Fast Weeknight Meals with Ready. Chef. Go!®


Whether you’re working late, helping the kids with homework, or trying to keep up with household responsibilities, weeknights can easily get hectic. You might feel you simply don’t have the time or energy to cook a healthy meal for you and your family. Fortunately, the cooking bags from Ready. Chef. Go!® have made it easier than ever to cook a quick, healthy meal that your entire family will enjoy. Better yet, if you aren’t sure where to start, we offer an online library full of easy and delicious recipes to further simplify your fast weeknight meals.

Side Dishes

Do you need a delicious side dish to add to your weeknight meal? Try our Fingerling Potatoes with White Mushrooms and Rosemary recipe. A great example of how easy it is to season your food with our microwave cooking bags, this recipe infuses potatoes and mushrooms with garlic, rosemary, salt, and olive oil. When using the microwave, your side dish is ready to serve in as little as 8-10 minutes.

Cookouts and BBQ

Just because it is a Tuesday night doesn’t mean you can’t fire up the grill and eat outdoors. In fact, our grilling bags are made for just that! Our Simple Sausages and Corn recipe is an easy way to get a well-balanced meal in under 15 minutes. If you’d rather cook indoors, the same recipe can be prepared by microwave or in a conventional oven at 400° F.

Healthy/Vegetarian Meals

We all know that eating well is time consuming, but our cooking bags make it easier than ever to create a healthy dinner. Whether you’re a vegetarian or not, you will love our 3 Bean Lettuce Wraps recipe, which can be put together in as little as five minutes. Simply combine garbanzo, white, and green beans with your favorite dressing and walnuts. After only three minutes in the microwave, garnish your meal with seeds and fresh lettuce.

Comfort Food

When you’re looking for easy weeknight meals, you might not even consider comfort food as an option. Fortunately, what may have taken your grandmother hours to prepare in the past, can be enjoyed in under a half an hour with our innovative cooking bags. Our delicious Chicken and Biscuits with Mushroom Gravy recipe, for example, cooks in the oven in under 20 minutes.


If you’re tired of the same old toast or cereal for breakfast every morning, it is time to break the cycle. At Ready. Chef. Go!®, we offer quick and delicious recipes for breakfast including our Breakfast Sausage and Tater Tots with Fresh Vegetables. Simply add your choice of vegetables, sauce, tater tots, sausage links, cheese, and seasonings into your cooking bag. Then, allow it to cook in either the microwave or oven until the cheese has melted, and you’ve got a home-cooked meal to enjoy before work or school. Or even switch it up and have breakfast for dinner!


If you are in the mood for a kid-friendly dessert that is also relatively healthy, our Granola Baked Apples recipe will be a hit for the whole family. This delicious dessert can be prepared in the microwave in only three minutes, leaving you with warm, sweet baked apples. Top them off with ice cream, whipped cream, or whipped coconut milk to close your weeknight dinner out with a bang.
