Healthy convenience items, such as frozen hash browns and pretrimmed veggies help to get dinner on the table in a flash.

Za'atar-Roasted Chicken Tenders & Vegetables with Couscous: Za'atar (or zaatar)—a Middle-Eastern spice blend that's a mix of thyme, sumac, salt, sesame seeds and sometimes other herbs—gives this sheet-pan roast chicken recipe tons of flavor. Chicken tenders and pretrimmed green beans make this healthy dinner super-fast.

Chickpea & Potato Hash: In this easy one-dish dinner, frozen hash browns and canned chickpeas speed up the prep process.
