Easy 3 ingredient Recipes

If you are living a hectic lifestyle, you would understand that the one thing that everyone always seems to “forget” to do is to eat your favorite comfort food! This makes sense since it takes time to decide what to eat and then more time to cook your meal in your house and lot for sale, plus you need to think about how much you are spending on each meal. Of course, you will also be thinking about how balanced your diet is so that you are able to maintain your busy schedule.

But feeding yourself and staying healthy need not be too stressful. We forget that there is also beauty in the simple things and that food can be simple too — so simple, that you can make a delicious meal from just a handful of ingredients! Get your air fryer, slow cooker, stove, or whatever you may use in your home, and whip up these meals using only three ingredients from your groceries.

Amaze your guests and save a lot of effort, too! Here are quick, easy, and delicious recipes that you can make using only a few ingredients

(not including oil, salt, and pepper since everyone has these in their pantries already!)

1. Teriyaki

  • 2 lb chicken thighs, sliced into chunks
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar (110 g)

If you are looking for a meal that is easy to prepare and store in your house and lot for sale, then you might want to try a teriyaki marinade. Just heat some olive oil, mix soy sauce and brown sugar and have your chicken thighs (or chicken breasts if you are maintaining weight) absorb all that flavor. Teriyaki sauce is good on everything, so you could choose to soak chicken or even tofu in this marinade. Then, you could just stick this into the freezer and thaw it out for your next meal.

2. Pancakes

  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Perfect for when you are rushing out the door in the morning, these 3-ingredient pancakes require you to simply mix everything into a bowl, cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, then serve. This is also the perfect recipe to use your overripe bananas on, so it doesn’t go to waste. Add some maple syrup while you’re eating to make it taste even better! This is great to pair with some orange juice in the morning.

3. Breakfast Skillet

  • 3/4-1 lbs beef
  • 1 cup salsa of choice
  • 6 eggs

This skillet is another breakfast option that is fast and simple. Simply cook the beef in a skillet (preferably cast iron) until there are no pink bits left, mix in the salsa, then create 6 wells in the meat for each of the raw eggs. Give the eggs about 7 minutes to cook in the meat and salsa, and it’s all ready to go. You can add sour cream to this afterward for extra flavor but seeing that there can only be 3 ingredients in these recipes, save the sour cream for later or another dish.

4. Coca-Cola Chicken

  • chicken
  • 2 liters of Coca-Cola
  • soy sauce (preferably light)

This is a rather convenient and different way to flavor your chicken: by adding soda into the mix! All you have to do is boil the chicken in water first until it is cooked, then replace the water with Coke and wait for the sauce to thicken. Add in the soy sauce to cut the sweetness of the soda and you will be surprised with the finished product.

5. Grilled Steak with Poblano-Corn

  • 2 ears of corn, husked
  • 1 large poblano chile
  • 3/4 pounds skirt steak

If you are looking for an easy recipe that is a bit on the fancier side in your house and lot for sale, then try making both salsa and sauce out of corn and poblano pepper. First grill the corn and poblano to get more flavor out of them before dividing them into two. The first half will go into a blender with some oil, salt, and pepper for the sauce; and the second half will be mixed together for the salsa. Cook the steak to your preferred rarity, put some sauce over it and some salsa on the side to enjoy your fancy 3-ingredient meal!
