Reviewed babe's chicken dinner house

Aug 25, 2014 on

Like most other mentioned, Roanoke (the original) is our favorite location. We make sure that every out-of-town guest experiences Babes at least once. There is always a wait but they manage to quickly get people through without rushing your dining. It's decorated in early American garage sale with family stle portions. You can split an order (half...

Saw the episode where he literaly tossed it together in minutes. I had everything already and never looked up the recipe...just recalled his instructions. It came out great! Now I re-read the recipe and will follow more closely to see how it compares w=to what I did (mI had more brandy and less cream).

This is a fantastic recipe. Like everyone mentioned, you need a 9x13 dish. This makes a ton. I halved the recipe one time and it still fed 8 people. A couple nice tweaks to experiment with. When making the quick grits, substitute cream for about half the water. Also, try adding a bulb of roasted garlic."

If you want to be the hit of the party...bring these rolls. It's a bit to lengthy of a process to do for our regular dinner, but if someone asks me to bring an appetizer, this is the one. I've made these on four different occasions and was asked for the recipe on each one. They pack up great and the sauces pack in tupperware. Did not need to c"

How easy and looks elegant. Everyone goes crazy on this and it is a great no fat way to start a meal (and curb your apetite. Find whichever shrimp are freshest and on sale. Of course small shrimp take less time. I've made this a half dozen times and served from 6 to 20 people (adjusting accordingly). Add a wedge of advacado to the glass to mi"
