If you want to use a framework but avoid the "kitchen sink" you could use micro frameworks like Lumen, Slim or Symfony (with the symfony/skeleton starter) and then add packages as required.

Next step from making web apps with plain PHP and JS? What to learn next? Laravel? React?
1 project | reddit.com/r/webdev | 10 Mar 2022
If you are concerned about the framework being too cumbersome, there are more lightweight options out there too. I have heard good things about Slim https://www.slimframework.com/
Project rewrite; to Laravel, or not to Laravel...?

Do you have a router? I presume not as most people that don't use a framework end up with 100's of PHP files in the htdocs/public folder that all act as a kind of router/controller. If that is the case, you may benefit from a micro-framework like Slim. Don't port over all your pages in one go, instead migrate them one by one as needed over a period of time. A good strategy is just if you need to touch the page for something, do the migration at that time.
A personal project | roady v1.0.0

Extra tip: To prepare yourself to use other frameworks in a job, look at how they lay out their application directory structure. They tend to be somewhat similar, and you can use those common structures to make your roady app structure more in line with them or to get to grips with them for when you get a job in the industry. Slim is a microframework with minimal extra features, so it may be a good starting point to compare with if you wanted to (https://www.slimframework.com/), and they have a skeleton app you could use to examine its structure (https://github.com/slimphp/Slim-Skeleton). People will probably also happily fight to the death about which framework is better, but you find one you like or a company you want to work for uses. Slim is just a suggestion.
Yes, PHP Is Worth Learning/Using in $Current_year

My team has been using the Slim Framework for years and it has servered us well for years. It is a microframework and follows most of the PSR standards so it is possible to replace libraries with relative ease.

Sure but it is specific to the slim framework: https://github.com/slimphp/Slim-Skeleton
Vue App with Lumen Passport API (Part I)
5 projects | dev.to | 25 Jun 2022
Lumen is a stripped down version of Laravel for building APIs. This makes it a lightweight framework. I'm currently using Lumen in a project and I want to use this opportunity to share some of the things I've learnt.

If you're concerned about frameworks perhaps being "overkill" for what you want to do with PHP, you'll be happy to hear that Symfony is a microframework out of the box (all components outside of the core framework are 100% optional), and Laravel also has a microframework variant called Lumen.
What is the best practice for sending and receiving data between HTML and PHP?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/webdev | 12 Nov 2021
I would let a framework handle this for you. It can render your HTML views and handle the security for you. It’s been a while since I’ve coded PHP, but I used to love https://laravel.com and https://lumen.laravel.com
