If we had an infinite amount of cash in our wallets, there’s a high chance that we would never cook again. Instead, we’d make our way to the nearest food truck, we’d sit down in fancy restaurants, and we’d order takeout to our apartment. Of course, we don’t have these dollar-dollar bills to spare, so most of the time we do have to cook for ourselves. What a drag, right? Well, it doesn’t have to be. If you’re in a hurry, you’re broke, and you need something delicious to tide you over, these takeout swaps will come in handy.
Grilled Chicken Burrito
Do you ever crave Mexican food? You’re not alone. Instead of making your way to your favorite Mexican restaurant, you can don your sombrero and make similar dishes at home. You can never go wrong with a Grilled Chicken Burrito, and it’s surprisingly quite and easy to make. Grilling chicken takes a matter of minutes, and then you just need to add all of your favorite toppings and extras. We’re talking cheese, guac, salsa, and anything else you fancy.
Chicken Tikka Masala
If you want a quick and easy dinner without the fuss, then this Chicken Tikka Masala is one for the recipe books. The best thing about Indian food is that you can make the food as spicy or as mild as you want, and this cuisine is all about the sides. Instead of ordering takeout, cook the chicken and then either make your Tikka Masala sauce or just buy a jar from your local grocery store! We won’t judge you for the doing the latter, because this means that you have more time to eat the delicious meal you make.
Sesame Chicken Noodles
If you’re really in the mood for Chinese food, but you just don’t have the time or money to wait around for the delivery driver to arrive, this recipe will definitely sort you out. This dinner should take just 25 minutes to prep and cook, and is available to mix up as you so wish. For the base recipe, you’ll need chicken breast strips, sesame oil, garlic cloves, chicken ramen noodles, chicken broth, water, teriyaki sauce, and onions. You can then add any other vegetables you want into the mix. All you have to do is cook the chicken and then add everything else into the pot!
