“Here is my very favorite chicken-and-spinach recipe,” writes Julie Fitzgerald from St. Louis, Missouri. A creamy topping and pretty presentation make it elegant enough for company but it’s also fast to fix on busy weeknights!
"My grandmother gave me the recipe for these moist golden chicken breasts topped with a tangy butter sauce made with chives, parsley and basil," says Irene Cooney of Manheim, Pennsylvania. "It's simple but very good- our family loves it."
I created this version of oven-baked chicken by modifying a recipe to match my family's love of garlic with chicken. Just coat the chicken, pop it into the oven and forget it. The crispy coating really stays on. My family always enjoys this flavorful main dish.—Jan Walls, Dover, Delaware
I enjoy cooking for my parents and two brothers. I usually prepare things that are a little out of the ordinary. These strips, seasoned with curry, are great for a family game night. —Betsy Baertlein, Mazeppa, Minnesota
"This casserole has so much zesty Mexican flavor that my husband doesn't even realize it's a low-fat dish," says Shirley Meyer of Alden, Minnesota. "With its creamy sauce made from soup and cheeses, it tastes like a calorie-laden meal when it's not."
This is the best fajita recipe I've ever tried. It sounds complicated, but it really isn't. The servings are hearty, but this dish is so good that my husband and I never have a problem finishing it! —Kathleen Smith, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
"This colorful combination of chicken, pasta and vegetables is very popular at my house," notes Raelynn Bulkley from Pleasant Grove, Utah. Coated in a creamy sauce, the made-in-minutes meal is sure to be well-received at your house, too.
"Chicken marinated in this fuss-free mixture comes out tender and tangy," informs Nancy Ode of Sherman, South Dakota. "Its mild curry flavor is equally good on pork," she assures, "but I marinate it for an hour or two longer for the best results."
