If you are tired of spending money on mediocre takeout, take heart. These quick-cooking dishes taste like the best renditions off of your go-to menus. So skip the delivery and get cooking. You'll be so happy you did.
Though Thai noodle dishes in restaurants often include hard-to-find
ingredients, you won't need them here. The resulting dish may not be as
authentic, but it's still extremely satisfying.
Crisp & Spicy Chicken Tenders with Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce
Whether they're called chicken tenders or chicken fingers, crispy, tender, white-meat chicken strips are a favorite,
Bison Burgers with Thousand Island Barbecue Dressing
Who needs two all-beef patties when you can have flavorful, and healthier, bison instead? The Thousand Island dressing may remind you of a certain "special" sauce.
Quick Chicken Parmesan
Crisp chicken cutlets are topped with two cheeses and a super-fast tomato sauce in this easy take on an Italian restaurant favorite.
Kung Pao Chicken
Kung Pao chicken is an iconic Sichuan stir-fry; this version of the classic requires only a large skillet and everyday supermarket ingredients. The dish comes together in about a half hour, plenty of time to steam some white rice.
Smoked Turkey Reubens
In this update on the classic, smoked turkey stands in for corned beef, while a fresh slaw and sun-dried tomato mayo take the place of sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing.
Spicy Thai Beef Curry
Jarred curry paste, available at most supermarkets, cuts down on the time it takes to make this favorite Thai dish.
Portabello Mushrooms with Creamy Spinach-Artichoke Filling
A favorite of laminated-menu style restaurants everywhere, this dip is even better when used as a filling for meaty portabellos and topped with crispy breadcrumbs.
Chicken Fajitas with Red Pepper, Onion & Lime
The rich, dark meat of boneless, skinless chicken thighs stands up well to intense flavors like the cumin, red pepper, and lime in this quick and easy dish.
Five-Treasure Fried Rice
Not only is this recipe quick to make, but it is also much better for you than greasy takeout fried rice. This recipe makes good use of leftover broccoli stalks, but its easily adaptable, so feel free to substitute other vegetables you might have.
