Beef & Broccoli
The sauce in this version uses ingredients we always have on hand in our kitchen—garlic, broth, soy sauce, lime juice, and Sriracha. While not traditional, this recipe hits the spot. For a more traditional version (with the addition of hoisin sauce), try our beef & broccoli stir-fry.

Chicken Marsala is a classic Italian-American dish that’s creamy, quick, and irresistible. The sauce made of mushrooms, marsala wine, and heavy cream is straight-up drinkable, and we love serving it over a big pile of spaghetti or angel hair.

Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup
Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of chicken noodle soup? This Instant Pot recipe makes light work of this homestyle classic.
Slow-Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup
Homemade chicken noodle soup is already easy to whip up, but tossing all of your ingredients in a slow cooker makes it even easier. Tip: If you make chicken soup and feel like it’s lacking something, this can typically be not enough salt. Finish the soup with a pinch of flaky sea salt, a drizzle of olive oil, and a squeeze of lemon for a brighter, punchier flavor.
Tuscan Butter Shrimp
Is there anything *authentically* Italian about this recipe? Nope. Is it delicious? 100%. In fact, this Tuscan butter sauce is so good, you’ll be tempted to eat it straight out of the pan. (And we wouldn’t blame you!)

Lemon Pepper Chicken
This recipe starts on the stovetop for a perfect golden sear then finishes in the oven for the juiciest, most flavorful results. If you don’t want to turn on your oven, you can do everything over the stovetop too!

Crock-Pot Pepper Steak
We in the Delish Test Kitchen absolutely love a good stir fry, both for how creative you can be with them and how quick they can be to make. But sometimes, even stir frying is too much effort and you just want something you can set and forget, like this pepper steak recipe.

Crockpot White Chicken Chili
Our slow-cooker white chicken chili couldn’t be easier, and we love the texture it takes on once the beans are partially mashed. It might feel weird to use a potato masher in your slow-cooker, but trust us, it’s worth it! This hearty chili will keep you full all winter long.

Shredded Chicken Tacos
Shredded chicken tacos are the perfect way to spice up your taco Tuesday. This recipe is inspired by chicken tinga, a Mexican guisado (or stew) made of tender shredded chicken that’s added to a tomato sauce spiked with chiles, onion, garlic, and spices. Top the tacos with cilantro, creamy avocado, and good squeeze of lime!

Easy Shepherd’s Pie
In England, the birthplace of this hearty dish, shepherd’s pie is most often made with a ground lamb filling. In the States, it’s more common to use ground beef. Both are delicious, so use whichever you prefer.

Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs
Using a slow-cooker is one of our favorite, easy ways to prepare chicken thighs. The gentle heat helps ensure that the thighs will be tender and juicy. AND the sauce, you’ll be happy to know, doesn’t need any precooking. It just gets poured right in and forgotten about until dinner time. 😉

Easy Creole Jambalaya
You can add all different types ingredients to a jambalaya like crawfish, chicken, okra or carrots but what absolutely most be present is perfectly cooked long grain rice and sausage, traditionally andouille. This is the base of our recipe but we also add some plump shrimp to round out the dish.

Stuffed Pepper Soup
This soup has everything you like about a classic stuffed pepper—ground beef, rice, tomatoes, and CHEESE. It’s perfect on its own or served with cornbread or a salad. Feel free to switch things up too (ground turkey for beef, quinoa for rice, etc.).

Sesame-Seed Crusted Chicken Parm
On the road to creativity here, we take two unexpected turns. First, we add sesame seeds to the breading for a nutty crust, crunchy enough to stand up to lots of sauce and cheese. Second, marinara gets upgraded with a scoop of harissa—a smoky Tunisian chili paste—for some heat and complex flavor. You might never make regular chicken Parm again.
Crispy on the outside, full of herby, spicy goodness inside . . . of all the things you can stuff between pita, falafel is one of our favorites. While there’s nothing as quick as grabbing a sandwich from your favorite falafel joint, our homemade falafel is a cinch.

This loaded fettuccine makes it so easy for you (and your family!) to eat your vegetables. We love adding quick-cooking shrimp to the pot for protein once the pasta is almost al-dente.

This vegetarian chili is till every bit as warm, comforting, and filling as a classic beef chili. Three types of beans do the heavy lifting in the chili and “beef” it up. It’s filled with warm spices, and a jalapeño adds a little extra heat. Serve it on a cold night with a slice of homemade cornbread, or on a hot one over a vegan hot dog.

Perfect Fish Tacos
The fish—we use cod, but any flaky variety, like tilapia, works—marinates in a mixture of lime juice, chili powder, and cumin that will become your standard. But the real gem of this recipe is the cabbage slaw—don’t skip it. It takes just a few minutes to toss together and its brightness is the perfect condiment to the spiced cod.
