Reviewed Balsamic Chicken with Baby Spinach

Aug 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out pretty decent, but not wonderful. I wasn't crazy about the couscous, and the meal overall was a little too acidic for my taste. I would suggest using fresh heirloom tomatoes instead of canned as sometimes they taste under ripe, which I suspect is to blame for it being too acidic. I love that food n...

Reviewed Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie

Aug 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a great quick and healthy chicken pot pie. It was still very rich tasting and filling even without the traditional pie crust. I had to double the biscuit recipe at the last minute because it was only enough to cover half the dish. I also agree that it could have used a little more seasoning. Other than these two easy fixes this was a deli...

I've found a new favorite with this simple and delicious recipe! The sauce is tangy and sweet and I would use it any time I needed a bbq sauce. Instead of the rotisserie chicken, I baked chicken breasts in the oven on 350 for 25 mins. while making the sauce; the timing turned out to be perfect and just as easy in my opinion. I guess I can see how...

Honestly, these were horrible. You would think that with 5 different spices it would be very flavorful. They were incredibly bland, all it tasted like was plain chicken covered with a clumpy milky flour mixture; which by the way fell off the chicken even before they were cooked. This has happened to me using another RR recipe. Hmmm, maybe there's...

Either I did not have a "large" bunch of greens or this recipe has'nt really been tested. 1 Tbl. of red pepper flakes had me coughing and fighting for air as I sauteed it with the onions and garlic. I could only take a few bites of this, the rest went in the trash. What I did taste was pretty good besides the overpowering heat of the pepper flake...

Reviewed Turkey Meatloaf

Aug 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made quite a few changes to this recipe and it still turned out delicious! I only bought about 2 1/2 lbs. of meat so I ended up cutting the recipe in half and eyeballing alot of the ingredients. I had one lb. of 95% lean dark meat and the rest was turkey breast. I think the dark meat works well when combined with the breast meat because it...
