Sheet Pan Sweet and Sour Chicken

Rating: 4.78 stars

Inspired by the flavors of our favorite Asian takeout, here's a recipe that uses canned pineapple tidbits, with the usual veggies. In order to make it sheet-pan friendly, the chicken is not breaded or fried. Add as much of the delicious sauce as you like, and if there is any left, store the sauce in the fridge in a sealed container, up to one week. It's also a great dipping sauce for Asian-style appetizers. Serve over hot steamed rice.

"Plastered" Pork Tacos with Apple-Jalapeno Salsa

Rating: 5 stars
4
I was in the mood for some pork tacos, but I was looking for a bit of a change of pace from the normal carnitas-style I would usually make, which led to this wild and crazy experiment. The "plaster" coating traps all the moisture and flavor of the pork in while it bakes, creating the best pork taco I've had in a while.

My family loves chicken Parm but making it from scratch on a busy school night is next to impossible. The good news is the chicken can be made ahead and frozen along with the right portion of sauce and cheese for a quick weeknight meal. Serve with pasta and Caesar salad.

This is my favorite chicken recipe, which I learned while doing low-carb dieting. I prefer dark meat so I'll use 4 legs and thighs. You can do this recipe with pork chops as well.

Okinawan-Style Pad Thai

Rating: 4.68 stars

This is a famous dish popularized in Thailand. Although the recipe varies from cook to cook and region to region, this is a good attempt at recreating what I ate from Thai-owned hole-in-the-wall restaurants in Okinawa, Japan. Key to the flavor are the sugar levels, unsalted peanuts, peanut oil, and either oyster or fish sauce.
