Reviewed spanish chicken and potato roast

Mar 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This chicken just didn't do it for me. I thought the flavor was pretty bland. However the potatoes were delicious! I cooked them in the microwave first as stated in the recipe and they came out perfect. I will definitely make the potatoes again but not the chicken.

This was really tasty meatloaf. I especially like that it was so simple to put together.

This was really good fried chicken. The only change I made was to use the sirachi after it cooked because my daughters don't like spicy food. Even my 5-year-old who constantly says she doesn't like chicken is already asking for me to cook it again! Thanks Tyler

Dec 8, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

These were very good. I wanted to give 5 stars but the rosemary and garlic flavor did not come through as strongly as I would have liked. After I removed the chips from the oil and added the salt, I sprinkled on some garlic powder and dried rosemary.

These tasted really good. My oldest daughter ate 3 wraps and asked to take some to school for lunch. I will definitely make this again and also try with chicken.

These were absolutely delicious. I assembled them as explained in the recipe, minus the tomato, and they were a huge hit at our cookout. I will definitely make these again."

Apr 5, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I have been thinking about making this recipe for over a year now and finally did it. I marinated the steak in the green chimichurri over night, but the flavor did not come through like I thought it would once cooked. I am definitely glad I made the red chimichurri to use as a sauce once the steak was cooked. My husband also really enjoyed it ("

Dec 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a pretty good recipe. Even though I liked it I wasn't blown away by it. I gave it 4 stars because when I made it for Christmas dinner, my family really loved it and asked for the recipe.

I will make it again but with a little more brown sugar and a little less dijon mustard.""

Jul 31, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I only made the beef taco filling, and it was delicious. It has just as much flavor as the packets, but it's better piece of mind to be able to control all of the ingredients used.

Since this is so easy, I'll definitely make it again."

This was a very good salad. One of the best things is that it is so easy to make, and even the younger kids liked it. I will definitely make this again."

I was looking for a new shrimp and grits recipe to try when I came across this one. Since I have yet to be disappointed with a Tyler Florence, I knew this would be a winner. I did make a couple of adjustments. I put a little tabasco sauce on the shrimp while I started on the grits (being from SC I only use Quaker). I also had some applewood sm"

This steak was pretty good. I liked that it is so simple to marinade and cook. My kids and husband really enjoyed it too. In fact my 2-year old asked for seconds.

The only things I did different were with the ginger and lime juice. I did not want to deal with fresh ginger so I used just under a teaspoon of ground ginger. ...

I saw Big Daddy making this dish on Sunday and knew that it would be a hit with my 2 and 4 year olds. They love cheese (althought you don't taste it), chicken and dishes that incorporate lemon. Just as I suspected this was a great dish. My 4 year-old said it was great before she finished chewing her first bite.
The only thing I would...

This is a great recipe! I have made it several times and it is always delicious. The dressing is so light and refreshing. I haven't made it with the grilled chicken, but I do grill the lettuce for a few minutes which adds another dimension of flavor to the salad. I recently served it at a party by putting it on top of slices of grilled french "

This is a really good recipe. I love the flavors in the marinating paste. It helped to seal in the moisture while the meat cooked. I used a bone-in pork butt and let it cook slowly on the grill for about 5 hours (4.5lb pork butt. I cooked it about 350 and was able to just rub the meat between my fingers to pull it.
