I absolutely adored these. They’re pretty simple to make and you can use canned crab or those krabsticks that are really fish puree to make them. They go well with thick dipping sauces and you can make them ahead of time and freeze them before frying for a crowd or for an easy lunch.
I can absolutely tell you that this was delicious and it was just about the ugliest thing I have made in ages. In the future I would probably add some jalapenos and made diced up onions and peppers to it but this was a big hit as is.
Chicken Tamale Pie
I really love this recipe because frying is just a bridge too far for me most days. I understand most people don’t fry because of health but for me it’s mostly just laziness so if you want the delicious taste of sweet and sour chicken but less work – this is the recipe for you.
No Fry Sweet and Sour Chicken
The original recipe touted that this is a copycat of Wendy’s but honestly it doesn’t really taste anything like Wendy’s except for the part where it’s spicy and fried chicken. Nothing wrong with that and this was an absolutely delicious and great sandwich/burger but just don’t expect a miracle of replicating the deliciousness of a professional level deep fryer in your house.
Spicy Chicken Sandwich
This is actually a really easy to make meal. It isn’t exactly like take out but it’s also not completely healthy either so it fills that need for take out without having to do too much work and unlike a lot of Chinese-American food it isn’t fried so it’s not too terrible as long as you’re not worried about salt content. You can easily switch out snow peas for broccoli/other vegetables or add them in this one dish, just make sure to par-boil or soften them in the microwave beforehand so it all cooks together.
Chicken with Snow Peas
I’m sure there’s only about 1000 recipes for turkey burgers. In the end it’s basically a reverse meatloaf in some ways but I also thought these burgers came out perfectly and they took less time than I assumed. By adding some finely chopped vegetables to the recipe, I think it keeps them moist while also stretching the amount of burgers you get from a pound of meat.
Delicious and homey this dish is a little heavy for normal days but sometimes you just want to slip in to a food coma and that’s what this recipe is for.
Chicken and Dumplings
This is a delicious change from soup and a nice throwback to a lot of peoples childhoods. I haven’t had Spaghettios in probably over a decade and I’ve never eaten the one with meatballs but I can almost assure you this one is way more delicious than the one in a can and honestly, very easy to make! You can sub in any type of meatballs or leave them out for a vegetarian version.
Homemade Spaghettios with Meatballs
This is a great recipe that uses pizza dough, cheese, and cold cuts to make something delicious and easy. You can serve it without or without a marinara dipping sauce depending on how you feel. I love the way it looks and how quickly it comes together.
While I do have a perfectly good quiche recipe already posted, this combination of things is completely out of this world and deserves it’s own recipe. Also in this one I used the shortcut of freezer puff pastry which creates a light vehicle for this but you can make your own crust or even use a pie crust if that’s how you want to do it.
