Easy Alice Springs Chicken

Rating: 3.5 stars 21
Bacon and cheese add to this dish inspired by the famous one at Outback Steakhouse®, but with a twist! Now you can make it at home! Best served with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed veggies with applesauce for dessert.

Meat and Veggie Stromboli

Rating: 5 stars 50
I got this recipe from a friend of a friend. It is so easy to make and can be customized to your liking by adding any of your favorite meats and/or veggies.

Mexican Lasagna Lite

Rating: 4.5 stars 98
This is a lower-fat version of a popular Tex-Mex style casserole. You can increase or decrease the number of tortillas used in order to fit your tray. I'm obviously using low- and no-fat ingredients which can be substituted successfully with full fat versions with great results. If needed, this can all be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated to store. Hope you enjoy!

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya

Rating: 4.5 stars 785
Enjoy a hearty rice stew with shrimp and sausage, stewed full of flavor.

Chef John's New Orleans-Style Barbequed Shrimp

Rating: 5 stars 86
This indigenous American shellfish dish, cooked on the stovetop, has plenty of big flavors from garlic, rosemary, and freshly cracked black pepper. Serve over hot cooked rice. Use the largest shrimp you can get.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Rating: 4 stars 775
A delicious and simple whole chicken recipe for the slow cooker. The sauce imparts wonderful flavor and tenderness, and is delicious served over jasmine rice.

Thai Peanut Chicken

Rating: 4 stars 666
This is a very tasty Asian-inspired dish made with chicken and broccoli in a spicy peanut sauce. If you like it mild, use less cayenne, like it spicy, use more. If you're salt conscious, use low sodium soy sauce.

Peanut Chicken Lo Mein

Rating: 4.5 stars 56
Kids love this chicken lo mein made with chow mein noodles, bean sprouts, and mushrooms tossed in a Thai-inspired peanut sauce. We always get rave reviews and requests for this recipe. You can add additional vegetables as desired (broccoli, snow peas, etc.), but if you add a significant quantity, you may need to increase the amount of peanut sauce.

Pantry Chicken Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 65
Using pantry items plus a couple of fresh items, you can create a cheesy, comforting casserole your whole family will love. Though it includes RO*TEL and a can of mild green chile peppers, it's not spicy; if you like the heat, choose hot RO*TEL and peppers. This pantry chicken casserole reheats well, too, but I had to hide it, or there would have been no night #2! A crusty bread and a green salad complete this easy pantry meal.

Easy and Delicious Mexican Pork Chops

Rating: 4.5 stars 135
Easy and delicious. Tender pork chops in the best Mexican rice. A perfect weeknight meal.

Oxtail Ragu

Rating: 4.5 stars 29
Richly browned oxtail sections are simmered low and slow in a rich tomato sauce until the meat comes off the bones-- this oxtail ragu is almost foolproof. The only way to screw up this incredibly succulent cut of beef is to not cook it long enough.

Broccoli and Chicken Stir-Fry

Rating: 4.5 stars 708
Stir-fry chicken, broccoli, and onion in delicious sauce for an easy meal.
