1 pan meals?

I'm looking for some 1-baking-dish meal ideas, where everything goes into a baking dish raw, can be put in the fridge for a few days, and then popped into the oven. Here are the ones I already have:

1. Salmon w/snow peas
2. Beanie wienies
3. Chicken w/potatoes and carrots
4. Shepherd's pie

Does anyone have any other ideas?

beef stew (or any kind of stew)

chili (I do brown the meat first, but this can be done well ahead of time, and even frozen until needed)

pulled pork

pot roast

My mom used to make this one.

Put 1 cup rice, 1 can cream of mushroom soup and 1 can water in a casserole and mix. Layer chicken thighs or drumettes on top. Shake onion soup mix on top. Cover and bake.

I haven't made this in years, but I remember it being so good and so easy!

Do you really mean leaving in the fridge uncooked for a few days? Raw fish/chicken/other meat mixed with other items before cooking? I'm not the type to apply strict foodservice sanitation controls at home, but this thought did give me pause. I'm much more familiar with precooked or partially cooked meals that can be finished/reheated, or assembled raw items that are cooked within about 1 day.

Yes, leaving in the fridge uncooked, at least that's what I've been doing. Everything is usually cooked within a few days. Raw salmon and fresh snow peas, raw chicken with potatoes and carrots, etc. I do make sure everything is cooked to more than 175, with the exception of the salmon.

Thanks for the suggestions so far, they sound really good!

chicken spaghetti - pioneer woman site has a good basic recipe, we used rotisserie chicken to make it easier and pepperjack cheese because we like that flavor

chili

cabbage rolls

have you looked in to slow cooker freezer meals you prep ahead of time? Lots of resources out there

I don't even have a crock pot anymore, but I will definitely look into getting one! When I had one before I only ever seemed to use it for beef with veggies and things like pinto beans, so it never seemed to be very versatile.

One of my favorites - chicken salsa. Put chicken in dish (tenders orbreasts) pour a jar of your favorite salsa on top. Bake until chicken is cooked through. Top with shredded chedder.

I agree, I think you are walking a thin line here. I'd be very careful. Perhaps you could put the meat and veggies, etc in separate baggies in the fridge ahead of time and then assemble when ready to cook. You don't want to make the whole family sick.

Thanks guys, this is so helpful! Heidi, that's a great idea, I never considered bagging everything separately and then just being able to dump it all into a dish when I'm ready to cook. I'll definitely start doing that!
