For the busy cook, skillet meals or dinners can be a lifesaver. These meals are easy, quick, tasty, and combine several food groups into one pan. Clean-up is reduced which is also important to busy cooks. Here are some choices for easy skillet meals. Try the German Skillet Dinner which features ground beef, rice, and sauerkraut. Don't like German? How about a Chicken Veggie Stir-Fry?
