Reviewed Antipasti Stuffed Chicken Recipe : Giada De Laurentiis : Food Network

Nov 17, 2014 on

oThis is a keeper. I pounded out the breast, spooned the filling, and then rolled up the chicken. I then tied then off, and cooked the breast as per the receipe. I pounded out the breast so we could have the filling in every bite. We found the chicken to be moist. The next time we make this, I'll use a small amount of red pepper flakes....

The gravy of the stew has a good tang. Don't be intimidated by the list of ingredients, this is an easy recipe. I had a small bit of frozen peas that I threw into the pot, and they added a nice perk of color."

I am not an expert at red velvet so am giving this a 3-star rating due the multiple tweaks necessary to make the end result satisfactory. That being said, these cupcakes were a success at last night's BBQ party.

Based on prior reviews, I took the advise to increase the cocoa powder in the batter. I used 2 tablespoons. Also,...

AWESOME SAUCE AND RUB! This BBQ sauce will be our go to for sauce from now on. We did not attempt the smoker portion of this recipe, so cooked the ribs as per another Emeril's recipe for baby back ribs. We rubbed the ribs and let marinate wrapped in foil in the refrigerate for two hours. Then the foil package was put into a 3250 oven for two "

Like all of the other reviewers, we agree that the frosting is a) too much, and b) tastes awesome. It is rich, creamy, but not too sweet.

However, we were not so successful with the cookie part of the recipe. I used an ice cream scoop as recommended, but the cookies were far too large. The cookies didn't cook properly, and...

We did try at our tailgate and it was a smash. The prep was done all at home - it took me an hour to prep but I am not the speediest chopper. I put the indredients into a zip-lock bag and labeled them 'step 1, step 2" etc to prevent me to keep from messing up at the tailgate. I did halve the amount of cayenne pepper to allow those that are n...

We usually cook a jambalaya at our tailgaters, so I couldn't resist trying this one. It passed the test at home so I am sure we'll work it into our tailgating repertoire.""

I was looking for a way to prepare edamame other than heating it up in the microwave with salt. I don't think I'll go back to that! Enjoyed the flavor of the saute'd onions, but it seems the overall flavor was missing some component - perhaps a dash of soy sauce?"

The balsamic helped cut the sweet from the syrup. A little of the sauce goes a long way."

Too lemony for our taste. Was hoping it would be a complimentary side dish but it was over powering.
