Best Meatloaf Ever !! I goofed and bought ground chicken by mistake but I think that made it even better. Now I only make it with ground Chicken. I've passed the recipe on to others and they loved it too. I'll NEVER use Ground Beef again. "

Reviewed Stuffed Chicken Thighs with Smashed Potatoes

Apr 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this recipe (minus the smashed) for company on Easter. Since I had possibly 8 people I doubled the amount of chicken thighs I needed and doubled the stuffing ingredients. Only thing was I ran out of stuffing before I ran out of all the chicken thighs. I had enough though. When rolled up, they were quite large so I figured maybe one per per"

Unfortunately I didnt make any of this recipe ahead so really time consuming. From scratch it took me almost 2 hours and I used jar marinara sauce.

The crepe recipe was good but I wouldn't use it for manicotti again. Crepes are too soft and not a contrast to the filling. I didn't quite understand the purpose of the bechamel...

This recipe was really good but took a long time to make. Maybe next time it will be easier. I think the first time I follow a recipe it goes slow.

I had made a short rib recipe from another Food Network show a few weeks ago and it was horrible. We threw it out and so I debated whether to try another. Glad I did.

I made this Sunday for dinner. I only had a 1 lb pork loin (for 2) so cut back amounts. It turned out delicious.

Since I didn't have prunes, I used raisens. My only negative was that after freezing the log for at least 2 hours, it was breaking as I tried to put in into the pork. The hole was big enough so maybe not using prunes...

Hate to give the Neelys such a low rating, since I usually love their recipes. But this one was different. I followed it exactly and had it cooking in my dutch oven for 3 hours. We didn't care for the sauce and I didn't even finish my food. I have no idea what it was about the taste. Maybe too sour or too acidic.

I made this today and was pleased with it. Since I didnt have 'honey' dijon, just plan dijon mustard, I added a little honey. The chives made it too strong so the honey helped. My husband doesnt like Dijon mustard and he had no clue what was on it.
I only made a 1 lb tenderloin so had to adjust the measurements. As other said, the time...

The hens came out great and the rub was just right to complement them. I didnt use the glaze (thus the 4) as it didnt thicken. I would up pouring it down the drain. I followed the directions. Who else had problems with the glaze. Today was the first time I used the Rub and had to search to find it. I have it stored now so next time I am all set....

I made this last night and it turned out great. I found sliced london broil in the store (couldn't find skirt steak) but I sliced it further after cooking it. The marinade made it tender and tasty. The only change I made was adding a little more olive Oil since 1 person said there was a typo. I only added another 1/4 to 1/2 cup and that was fine....

This was so good ! And the spices in the egg mix made it so different. Ive made a lot of the Neely's recipes this week (probably 6 of them) and my husband loved them all.....though he has no clue where they are from. Again I only made half and so I may have had a little too much egg but I let it set longer. I would suggest they give the recipe amounts...

I made this the other day and like others said the spices in the flour mix really made the chicken good. My only negative was that the bread crumbs fell off and were messy. but that isnt the fault of the recipe. I will definitely make it again. It was for only 2 of us so I just used 4 pieces of chicken. I will make it again and maybe next time,...

Over all this was really tasty. If I had problems it was that I used frozen corn and cut the recipe in half. It was a bit spicy so next time I'd put in a little less ceyanne pepper. Also it didnt set well so I baked it a little longer. But I may have added too much milk and cream. When I try to cut a recipe I always seem to have problems as measurements...

I think I will try another recipe...
