5-Ingredient Spring Dinner Recipes for Every Night in May

Cutting your grocery bill never tasted so good.

If you want a lower grocery bill, listen up. We’ve collected our best springtime recipes that all use 5 ingredients or less. You might notice that some recipes appear to have more than five ingredients—that’s because we didn’t include pantry and refrigerator staples that you most likely already have on hand like milk, eggs, oil, salt, pepper, basic spices, and chicken broth. Stocking your pantry and refrigerator with these basic ingredients is one of our best tips for getting dinner on the table in a flash. Most of these recipes are also versatile enough for easy substitutions. If you have a half-used block of Asiago use it in place of Parmesan for a simple swap. If you always keep a package of chicken cutlets in the freezer, you can easily use them in place of the protein of choice in any of these recipes. Just adjust the cook time accordingly.
