Creamy Chicken Toast

Rating: 5 stars 20
Diced chicken breast is draped in a creamy sauce with green onions and peppers plus tarragon for the finishing touch. Enjoy a delicious, comforting chicken dish as well as a reminder on how to make cream sauce--it's easier than you thought. I serve this over bread, but any starchy base will do. Garnish with green onions if desired.

Roast Peruvian Turkey

Rating: 5 stars 66
This is one of the juiciest and most flavorful turkeys I've ever made! The rub forms a crust that locks in all the juices, even in the driest part of the breast meat. I served some of it plated up with sweet potato chunks and black beans and some of it covered with rich pan gravy.

Greek Chicken and Potato Bowl

Rating: 5 stars 21
How do you make our Big Fat Greek Salad bigger and fatter? By adding garlic, lemon, and herb chicken. Plus, some crispy, crunchy, pan dripping-soaked potatoes. And yes, we could've called this Greek Chicken and Potato Salad. But it's come to my attention that these days, people really enjoy eating things called "bowls."

Chef John's Chicken and Rice Casserole

Rating: 5 stars 31
Have you ever been eating chicken and rice and thought to yourself, "This is good, but I wish it had a little bit more going on?" If so, you'll love this. This chicken and rice casserole was inspired by many different recipes from many different places. Sprinkle this with red pepper flakes, if desired.

Chef John's Chicken Tikka Masala

Rating: 5 stars 547
Tender chicken thighs cooked in a creamy coconut, tomato, and onion gravy.

Chef John's Cassoulet

Rating: 5 stars 14
This classic French white beans and sausage dish is slowly cooked to tender perfection under a crispy, caramelized crust.

Cherry Tomato and Cheese Galette

Rating: 5 stars 32
While 'galette' sounds a little fancy, they're actually one of the easier type of pies to make, and above and beyond the simple technique, they are incredibly adaptable to whatever is in season. Whether that's sweet fruit or savory vegetables, there are very few things you can't galette. Garnish with fresh basil if desired.

Chennai Chicken Wings

Rating: 5 stars 16
A football snack from the land of cricket, these gluten-free spicy wings are inspired by one of my favorite Indian restaurants. As usual, feel free to alter the spice amounts as you see fit, but as I said in the video, do not skip the rice vinegar sauce.

Burrata Chicken Sliders

Burrata adds extra creamy goodness to grilled chicken sliders.

World's Best Lasagna

Rating: 5 stars 19840
With sausage, beef, basil, and 3 types of cheese, it lives up to its name!

Seven Layer Dinner

Rating: 4.5 stars 39
This was and is my favorite casserole. I hope you enjoy this 7-layer dinner as much as my family does. Great warmed up the next day.

Round Steak and Gravy

Rating: 4.5 stars 23
The meat is so tender and moist and the gravy is so flavorful. Instead of baking it in the oven, I use my pressure cooker. This is wonderful with mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles.
