2 days ago on

I ordered the Calabrian Chili paste from Amazon and boy was it worth it! If only I knew what else to do with it other than for this recipe. I've made this dish multiple times and am obsessed with it. For a complete meal I top it with some blackened chicken, yum!

Delicious! I love healthy food that tastes so good you feel like you're cheating. I marinated my chicken overnight rather than the two hours and the meat was juicy and flavorful. I skipped the bean sprouts, rice noodles and additional hoisin on top of the wraps, however I must say the chili sauce and crunch from the nuts are a must.

May 27, 2014 on

This sandwich was well worth the mess it took to eat, however that could be due to the mass amount of the ranch sauce I put on top because it was SO good! I did use chicken breasts that I sliced in half since they were huge. My blackening seasoning had salt in it already, so I did not add anymore to the dressing. Served this along with a creamy coleslaw...

Crazy good! I love nachos, seriously, if I got to choose my last meal, it would be nachos. I love variations of the classic, like this recipe. The salsa is great. I couldn't find that type of pepper so I used jarred cherry peppers and turned out delicious! For the toppings, I only used sour cream (not a fan of ricotta), no basil and pepperoni which...

I used boneless skinless chicken breasts rather than the thighs. I also added broth to the pan after it had been in the oven a few minutes because the hot sauce started to burn to the pan. I can't decide if I like the uncooked veg or not. It added some crunch, but I think next time I'll try cooking down the veg for a bit. The ranch is ridiculously...

Apr 14, 2014 on

I made the chicken marinate only, not the sandwich. I marinated some boneless chicken breast over night. I was expecting a much spicier dish, but maybe my jalapenos weren't super spicy (I even left in all the seeds!) Although this dish was good, I will probably never make it again as I am a big fan of a dry spice rub for jerk seasoning.

I made sliders from this beef. After piling on the meat I melted some cheese on top and served with a horseradish mayo. I cut up the onions and placed them in a slow cooker then added the browned seasoned beef and liquids. Next time, I'll skip adding the water, as I think diluted a lot of the flavor. This is a great slow cooker meal to come home to...

I made this in April therefore I had no leftover turkey meat, so I browned up some ground turkey instead. I then added carrots, onions, celery and garlic to the pan. Then I added some flour, stock and milk...

If I opened a bakery and sold only these, I could become a millionaire. Seriously, they are that dangerously good. My family devoured them at Sunday brunch.

I replaced half the sweet potatoes, yams rather, with chicken for our meat eating family. I also doubled the sauce. I thought the very small amount of rue was odd, but the yogurt (I used non fat plain Greek) really thickened it up. It tasted fine. It was a nice change up from a family favorite, chicken pot pie. "
