7. Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Chicken

I've wanted to make this recipe since the day it was published, and I finally made it last night. It was light, refreshing, and oh so easy — basically everything I hoped for and more. Boneless chicken thighs will work in place of breasts (just err on the upper end of the cook time).

6. BBQ Tofu Bowls

Grab a couple sheet pans, because that's the secret to pulling these meat-free bowls together in a flash. While the tofu and veggies roast in the oven, cook up some rice and stir together a quick yogurt sauce.

1. Vietnamese-Style Chicken & Noodle Salad

This dinner salad starts with a lemongrass-ginger marinade that pulls double duty as the dressing. It can be made in advance, along with the rice noodles, and you can expect these leftovers to hold up when you pack them for lunch for the next day or two.
