Anything with grilled or baked chicken is a win in my book.

I've actually enjoyed experimenting with curry as of late. Usually composed of chicken + potatoes + onions + rice + curry sauce.. the curry sauce changes every single time until I find a perfect blend though.

I make odd combos of things. I'll put like... Tabasco sauce in my ramen along with eggs, spam, bacon. I've even put red wine vinegar in it as well.

Like I said, I'll mix things that I like together and somehow it turns out good.

Japanese cuisine, French, and Mexican in that order.

My go to Japanese dish is Sukiyaki, it's basically meat sliced thinly( I prefer beef put it's up to you ) , shirataki noodles, various vegetables such as chinese cabbage or shungiku , I usually like to add pan fried tofu. You then cook it in a broth of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin. You then dip the ingredients into raw egg while they are still hot from your pot. Then if desired you can serve it alongside steamed rice. It was the first dish I ever learned to cook and by now I can do it in my sleep.

My favorite French dish is Cassoulet, which at it's most simple is bean and meat casserole. White beans must be used, then you add duck confit, sausage, and then pork and mutton. .

As for Mexican food the enchilada of course. A simple dish consisting of a corn tortilla wrapped around a filling and then covered in a chilli pepper sauce.

I like to grill foods. I dont have a grill atm though, so i usually just cook chicken and rice.
For college, depending on your cash flow, chicken and rice might be the cheapest for you.

I get white rice and cook in in my rice cooker, i pan fry the chicken and then I put 1 or 2 sunny side up eggs on top of it. Its really good, and very healthy. You can also switch out the egg for steamed broccoli, or add the broccoli with the egg still in. Both are good and healthy choices.

I know a lot of people that live off the chicken, rice, and broccoli diet who also work out and have great bodies. Im just going for a slim body and it works if I do some mediocre daily exercise. (1.5 miles daily)

Anything tasty and simple. I cook mostly Japanese stuff, but anything that doesn't involve elaborate processes is easy to me.

1. Gyudon - You basically throw everything together and simmer the beef for half an hour. Doesn't get any easier than this.

2. Oyakodon - Same as above.

3. Pasta - If you buy premade sauce, it's so quick and easy with little cleanup involved. You can also mix premade sauce with your own additions.

4. Sushi and sashimi - Minimal cooking is involved, but you need to know how to cut and serve the food properly.

5. Cold soba or somen with men-tsuyu - Cold dipping noodles. All you need is green onions, ginger, and egg in addition to noodles and sauce. Refreshing dish for hot days.

6. Any kind of slow cooker recipe - Toss everything in and forget about it.

7. Fried rice - Best part is that it's actually better with day-old rice. Fry onions and maybe garlic and some meat, throw the rice in with a beaten egg, and season with anything you want.

8. Steak - The actual cooking process is very short and simple.

9. Tamago kake gohan - But I mostly eat it as breakfast.

Pho! I try to make it at least once a month. Made sure that before I moved out on my own I got my moms recipe. I swear though she left something out because it still tastes waaaaay better when she makes it...

Hmmm... simple meals... lets see here.

Some soups are very simple. Minestrone, Black Bean Soup, Beef and Vegie Soup, Chicken Noodle Soup, all are easy to make and gives 8-10 servings.

Couscous, grilled chicken, onion, tomato, garlic, basil and some herbs and spices to your liking can be a very simple meal as well.

Spaghetti (meatless and with meat) is also simple to make. Chili is very simple and can be left on the stove to simmer to make it taste better (some chili I make takes 20 minutes, some 3-4 hours).

You can use a crock pot as well. A great example of this is get onion soup mix, oregano, 2 lbs of rump roast, a lager (beer), and a can of beef broth. Mix them together is a crock pot and let it sit for 8-10 hours (you never need to touch it again until it is ready). Serve on some good bread.

If you actually want any of these recipes, I can send you them in a PM. Message me if you want any.
