You’re having a date over and it’s time to impress them with your culinary skills. No pressure. Unless you’re a professional chef, you might be pulling your hair out as you wonder what kind of food you should make. Luckily, we have a list of 4 impressive, beginner-friendly meal that will blow your date’s socks off.

1.     Pan-Seared Chicken Breast

Pan-seared chicken breast is always a great choice if you don’t have much experience in the kitchen. It’s easy to handle on the stove and it takes on the flavor of any spice you cook with really easily. So long as you have the spices down, your dish will taste amazing.

Chicken is almost always the star of any dish and can stand in the spotlight by itself. By making chicken, you avoid having to stress out over the rest of the meal. Throw in some rice, potatoes, or a green salad and you’re good to go.

2.     Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

A classic Italian staple, spaghetti and meat sauce is beginner-friendly and appropriate for a dinner date. You can buy the pasta at the store, but if you’re feeling confident, you can always make it yourself. The pasta takes but a few minutes to cook, so if you time it just right, you can have it fresh and ready by the time your date arrives.

There are many ways to make a good meat sauce. You can use ground beef, vegetables, pizza sauce, or tomato sauce. Layer the sauce on top of a pile of pasta and you have yourself a romantic, attractive dish.

3.     Honey-Glazed Salmon

Salmon is one of the easiest fish to cook. Like chicken, it’s hard to go wrong with the flavor because the secret is in the sauce.

Honey-glazed salmon is particularly impressive for dates because it’s both sophisticated and romantic. The sweetness of the honey and the deep, red tones of the glazed salmon really set the mood. You can pair this dish with vegetables or salads. It’s light and easy to digest, so if you want to make room for dessert, salmon is a great choice.

4.     Crispy Baked Eggplant

A fun vegetarian option is crispy baked eggplant slices. Pop the slices into the oven and you’ll have yourself a jaw-dropping dish in no time. Pair them with a homemade sauce or sprinkle them with cheese.
