Yum! The chicken was so moist. I used prosciutto instead of ham and I skipped the breadcrumbs. Turned out delicious and not difficult at all!"

This recipe is delicious! I did not have a cast iron skillet, so I put it in a deep ceramic pie dish. I also was pressed for time, so I shredded a rotisserie chicken instead of cooking the chicken. It was soooo good, and my husband loved it. I will definitely make this again!"

I normally stick with the chef's recipe the first time I make something, but after reading some of the reviews, I altered this recipe a bit. I diced two 1/2" slices of pancetta and sauteed them until they were cooked through. I removed the pancetta and deglazed the pan with about 1/4 cup of a dry Pinot Grigio. I did not use any olive oil since...

I made this recipe the other night and it was delicious. It is simple to make, but looks and tastes elegant. The only thing I shouldn't have done is follow someone's advice that said it wasn't lemony enough. I love lemon flavor, so I went ahead and added about 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice instead of the 1/3 cup and it was too much (tart). I t...

These were SO good! I made them for a Superbowl party and they were a huge hit. I used Nathan's little hot dogs and there are 40 in a pack, so I doubled the recipe. You do not need to double the dipping sauce, though. There is more than enough and it was delicious. ""

This was so simple to make and it was delicious! I made it even simpler by using a rotisserie chicken that I shredded. I did add about 1/2 cup skim milk because it seemed too thick and I also added a potato. Yum!""

This is a fantastic beef stew recipe! This is the first time that I have made it, and it turned out great. Very flavorful, and I did not find the red wine flavor too powerful as others wrote. I used a Cabernet that I had at home to drink, and it gave the stew a delicious flavor. I did add a little cornstarch as I like stew to be a bit thicker...

This recipe was simple to make, and it turned out great. The beef was so tender, and the sauce was very tasty. I omitted the mushrooms (husband won't eat them, and added snow peas instead. I also added one small red chili pepper (sliced into thin ribbons for a little heat. Delicious!""

I made these last week and gave them as gifts for people at work. The recipe is easy to follow and they turned out perfectly. The crust was delicious; tastes like a shortbread cookie. The lemon was a bit sweet for me, but everyone raved about them! I listened to the reviewers and did not grease the pan (just the foil, and they are correct that"
