My wife and I first made this chicken entree as newlyweds and have been hooked ever since. We love it because it's so simple and affordable, yet delicious and healthy. Can't beat that. We make it almost weekly.—Chris Koon, Midlothian, Virginia
This moist chicken takes minutes to cook using the direct grilling method. The thick zesty sauce is equally tasty over pork. If you'd like, make a double batch of sauce and reserve half of it to serve at the table.
"I based this flavorful stir-fry on a fabulous dish I sampled in a San Francisco restaurant," notes Amy Masson from Cypress, California. "It truly is a 10-minute main dish that looks and tastes like it took a lot longer."
From Lake Havasu City, Arizona, Dawn Hart shares an easy method for dressing up chicken. She rolls strips in a quick coating made with potato flakes and bread crumbs, then cooks them for a couple minutes in a skillet.
I've been making this simple yet satisfying dish for more than 25 years," relates Aline Christenot of Chester, Montana. "Just last year, I tried freezing the ground beef mixture so I'd have a head start on a future dinner. It works great!"
"I developed this dish while visiting a friend," says Mary Cokenour of Monticello, Utah. "She came home late from work and didn't have time to grocery shop. So I threw together this all-in-one skillet dish using pantry staples. Her family was so impressed that now she makes it for them once a week."
A taco shell makes a good holder for a hot dog dressed up with a tasty combination of baked beans and cheese. "When our children were young, they asked for this meal at least once a week," remembers Kat Thompson of Prineville, Oregon.
THIS quick-and-easy recipe fits in well with a busy schedule.
Along with a garden salad, it makes a nice light meal for two, but when we want something more filling, I'll serve this potato with a small broiled steak.

We fish on most summer weekends, so we have lots of fresh fillets. Everyone who tries this crisp, golden fish loves it. It's my husband's favorite, and I never have leftovers. Honey gives the coating a deliciously different twist. —Sharon Collis, Colona, Illinois
When my husband and I needed dinner in a hurry, we came up with this dish that gets spicy flavor from pepperoni. We like to use angel hair pasta because it cooks faster than other noodles. —Debbie Horst, Phoenix, Arizona
