The convenience of refrigerated piecrust makes this deep-dish favorite easy enough for a weeknight. If you don’t have time to simmer a whole chicken, just substitute an equal amount of canned broth and the meat from a rotisserie chicken.
Forget about calling for takeout! Red curry paste and coconut milk add instant Asian flavor to this soul-warming dish. Rather than chopping the chicken, use 2 forks or your fingers to pull the meat apart lengthwise, separating it into long shreds. Prepare the dish even faster by steaming frozen green beans instead of fresh.
A speedy Italian classic, this tetrazzini can be made ahead for easy weeknight dinners. Freeze an unbaked casserole up to 1 month, if desired. Thaw overnight in refrigerator. Let stand 30 minutes at room temperature, and bake as directed
