Delectable Marinated Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 532
I have experimented with so many marinades for chicken using my neighbors as guinea pigs and this one has been branded by all as simply delectable, thus the title.

Chef John's Chicken Teriyaki

Rating: 4.5 stars 53
I have enjoyed teriyaki many times at Japanese restaurants. If I've made it at home I've probably just bought a bottle of teriyaki sauce and brushed it on some chicken. This is an authentic version. I'm very glad I did it. The term teriyaki comes from of two Japanese words 'teri' and 'yaki'. Teri refers to the shine or luster of the glazed sauce, and yaki means to broil or grill the meat.

Chef John's Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Rating: 4.5 stars 183
When I visit my mom we usually make it to P.F. Chang's® at least once and always start the meal with their very popular chicken lettuce wraps. They do a good job with most of the dishes I've had, but the wraps are clearly my favorite. I don't do a lot of copycat recipes; these chicken lettuce wraps, however, are a delicious exception.

Easy, homemade taco seasoning is cheaper than store-bought versions.

Pork Tenderloin Diablo

Rating: 5 stars 808
This is a great pork recipe. Mustard is a classic with pork, but when you add the extra zing of horseradish and cayenne, and then smooth it out with a little cream and butter, well, it's devilishly delicious.

Chef John's Crab Cakes

Rating: 4.5 stars 567
These are what crab cakes are supposed to be like. They are basically a fried lump of crabmeat, held together with a minimum of filler. Delicious!

Chef John's Chicken Paprikash

Rating: 5 stars 58
After many, many requests, I'm excited to be sharing what is my second favorite Hungarian dish of all time. I really love making anything Hungarian, since the recipes tend to be simple and easy to make, as well as comforting and delicious, and the names are never not fun to say. Top with extra sour cream and freshly sliced chives on top.
