When one of my favorite lunch spots closed, this recipe let me hold on to more than just good memories. The peas, bacon and cheese are such a fun and springy combo. I make big batches of the salad for parties—turns out I'm not the only fan! —Merrijane Rice, Kaysville, Utah

For a casual meal, this fast and flavorful sandwich from Sue Bosek of Whittier, California can’t be beat. The tender chicken breasts are coated with seasoned bread crumbs and smothered in marinara sauce. Served on a hoagie, it’s a real treat!
