I make dinners fast for me and my son. I can cook a chicken breast (split it with my son, they are so big these days) cheap steaks, or those thin pork chops in minutes in a teflon fry pan (actually the thin pork chops are super quick). I get the pan hot, sear both sides, then turn the pan down low, put the lid on, and let it steam until it is done (except for the pork chop, that is pretty much done once browned. In general, the meat is done when a puddle of its juices forms around the piece in the pan. And if it is not done, like if a chicken breast is especially thick, cut it in half, return it to the pan, and turn the burner up to medium for a couple minutes.
I will microwave two smallish red potatoes for 5 minutes, then steam broccoli in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, or thaw some other frozen vegie, then either have a piece of fruit or some corn to go with dinner. If I am cooking fresh corn, I leave some husk on two of them and microwave the two for six minutes total.
Sometimes I will do whole wheat pasta instead of potatoes, but it does take a bit longer to get the water to come to a boil.
Pour a glass of milk and that is it.
