Lasagna? Buy the ready cooked sheets, jar of pizza sauce, and grated cheese. Layer lasagna with sheet of lasagna, sauce and cheese and it's ready to bake. You can add some tinned mushrooms or other veg to make it healthier, or make a salad/cut veg as well for a side.

Sweet chili Salmon? Put salmon in tray, pour sweet chili sauce on, put in oven. For a side put cup of rice in a pan, add some frozen veg or flavor with spices, add water and bake for approx 40 mins. Add cut veg for a side.

If you want a really easy meal, try this. Get chicken pieces in parts. You don’t want wings. Buy two boxes of potato latke mix. Make as per box directions, but let it get a little thicker. Stuff the mix under the skin of each piece of chicken. Season chicken with a sprinkling of paprika, salt, and pepper. Throw some garlic, whole cloves, in the roasting pan, add some baby carrots and whole pan onion chunks, tightly cover,and put in the oven at 400 for one hour and forty five minutes.

Add a salad, and some pareve ice cream with defrosted frozen strawberries and crushed cookie crumbs. Have a good time with your guests.

How much time do you have to cook?
What ingredients do you have in the house?
There are tons of easy yummy suppers but depends on how much time you have! I would try to manage with what I have in the house!
I would make vegetable soup made with frozen vegetables
A nice salad
Macaroni and meat sauce (ready in 30 minutes!)
Lo mein or stir fry(super quick!)
Or chicken and rice and green beans( much longer cause I like chicken well done!)
Or a bbq?

Thank you all for your help.

Have a plumbing problem and they shut the water off (of course now of all times) so wont have time to really do any cooking now.
Going to make a BBQ with hamburgers and hotdogs and fries and coleslaw and potato salad and green beans with pastami.
If I have time will make a soup.
Ice cream and cake for dessert.
Not really what I wanted to make but it should be fine. Anything else?

Tzippy323 your chicken recipe looks yum, I think I will make it for shabbos.
