5 New Dinners You Need to Try Now

November 1, 2015 | By | Comments (0)

It’s November, which means you’re about to be overrun with Thanksgiving recipes. You’re going to see so many turkeys, you’ll start to gobble. The stuffing will pile so high you have to don waders to shuffle through them. The pie recipes… Wait, you can never have too many pie recipes.

Thanksgiving is only one day, but you still have to put dinner on the table the other 29 nights. That’s why we’re providing you with a few delicious dinner recipes you just have to try this month. Bonus: we made sure they’re all quick so that you have more time to pin pumpkin cheesecake and daydream about your perfect Thanksgiving tablescape.


Beer-Braised Chicken Thighs with Cremini Mushrooms: A wide skillet and less liquid allow for a relatively short, intense braise–less than 20 minutes, compared to many hour-long versions.


Pan-Seared Chicken with Pecan-Scallion Gremolata: The lemony, nutty gremolata is addictive. Dollop it over any number of proteins, or spread it on a toasty sandwich. Serve the chicken with a peppery arugula salad, and you’re good to go.


Tofu Banh Mi Wraps with Quick-Pickled Carrots and Radishes: Drain the pickles well before adding to each wrap. This is a saucy sandwich, so extra liquid can make it a bit messy once you bite in.


Fast Skillet Chicken Cacciatore: Lean chicken breasts cook quickly–in just 15 minutes compared to the hour-long braise in most cacciatore recipes. If you’d like more heat in the sauce, kick up the crushed red pepper to 1/2 teaspoon.


Pork Sliders with Smashed Avocado: For smaller sandwiches like these, we prefer to smash the avocado into a spread before assembling so that no slippery slices are lost on the journey from plate to mouth.
