Tips & tricks for school night suppers

Hit up humble chicken with herbs and spices, such as smoked paprika and fresh thyme – investing in flavour before cooking will give you incredible-tasting results.

Give Jools’ flavour-packed stews a try for guaranteed smiles all round the dinner table. Serve with a side of steamed seasonal veg.

In our house, a traybake is the ideal fuss-free meal. Just get your prep done, then you can let the oven do all the hard work for you. Try these one-pan chicken drumsticks from the Food Allergy Mums; it’s sure to become a weeknight favourite.

Eggs are a super-nutritious source of protein and other essential vitamins. Plus they’re affordable, versatile and can be cooked up in a jiffy. Make a meal of them by rustling up a frittata with your favourite veggies.

Pasta is the ultimate weeknight saviour when you’ve got lots of mouths to feed. It’s super-quick to cook and can be spruced up with all manner of sauces and sprinkles. We love this simple tuna pasta dish.
