  • In your grocery deli, you can often buy roast beef or roasted turkey, both of which are lean meat choices. You can even ask for extra thick slices so you can dice it and use in recipes.
    Fresh off the rotisserie or grill, skinless chicken breasts, whole chickens, and half turkey breasts are available in many supermarkets. Remove the skin, then shred or cut the meat as needed for your recipe.
    A couple of companies are now offering seasoned grilled chicken strips. Find the packages near the lunch meat section in your grocery store.
    You can buy cooked shrimp at the fish counter

  • Fast-Cooking Tip No. 2: Have a Main Dish Salad

Main dish salads are the perfect summer supper -- cool, light, and quick to fix. Salad greens are the base ingredient and that's easy: just open a bag of salad greens or spinach leaves and pour into a bowl. Then throw in the rest of the ingredients!

  • Fast-Cooking Tip No 3. Make It Vegetarian

    One way to save time cooking the meat portion of your meal is to skip the meat. Some easy vegetarian entrees include bean and cheese burritos, vegetarian burgers (they take about four minutes to brown in a nonstick frying pan), egg-based entrees like omelets, and vegetarian sandwiches featuring cheese and/or roasted vegetables.

  • Fast-Cooking Tip No. 5: Add Some Store-Prepared Gourmet Items

    Save time in the kitchen -- while cranking up the fancy factor -- by buying a few key gourmet items often prepared at Whole Foods Market and similar upscale markets. Look for items like:

    Freshly assembled avocado-mango salsa (great for gourmet style quesadillas, tacos, meat entrees, and more).

    Roasted vegetables (great for sandwiches, vegetarian quesadillas and tacos, and more).

    Grilled salmon and chicken breast (great for pasta dishes, main dish salads, Mexican-style entrees, and more).

  • Fast-Cooking Tip No. 6: Whip Up a Stove-Top Meal

    Even on a hot evening, some of us are willing to spend five minutes over the stove if it means a freshly made meal. Armed with a nonstick frying pan, you can quickly whip up:

    Grilled sandwiches (you could also use a panini press)

    Quesadillas

    Omelets

    Fried rice (if the rice is already cooked)

    BLT sandwich (while the turkey bacon is cooking, toast the bread and slice the tomato)

    Fajitas take 5 minutes to make if you buy your meat already cut into small pieces and use bottled fajita sauce.
