Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Ginger-lime chicken with broccoli and carrots

    • vickster on March 31, 2019

      Loved all the flavors in this dish but the boneless breasts came out too dry, even though I cooked them minimal time. Probably won't repeat unless I use thighs with bones and skin, but would have to adjust vegetable cook time because chicken would take longer to cook.

  • Instant spaghetti and meat sauce

    • vickster on March 07, 2019

      Makes a thin pasta sauce, but I like my sauce that way. I used ground beef, browned the meat and removed from the pan and drained. Then I sauteed the onion and garlic in some olive oil. Very easy dish!

    • moose1995 on November 11, 2018

      Followed instructions to a tee. Was extremely watery. Didn't look anything like photo.

  • Honey-mustard chicken bake

    • Aggie92 on March 23, 2019

      We really enjoyed this. I misread the recipe and used bone-in chicken thighs so I cooked the chicken and vegetables together for the entire cooking time. The honey mustard sauce was delicious with whole grain Dijon. Will definitely make this again.

    • southerncooker on January 14, 2019

      Daughter, son-in-law and I all agreed this chicken was delicious. Son said just ok. I didn't have cauliflower, asparagus or bell pepper so I just used purple onion and we had green beans and mashed potatoes on the side. I made a recipe and a half of the chicken and mustard sauce. Loved that it used boneless thighs.

  • Crispy codfish cakes with horseradish cream

    • Aggie92 on March 25, 2019

      We love fish cakes in this house and this recipe did not disappoint. I don't own an air fryer so I followed the alternate instructions for baking them in the oven. The only problem I had (totally my fault) was the cod released a lot of water when I baked the fillets and I did not drain them well enough. So my cakes were very wet and there was no way they were going to hold together for dredging in an egg wash and breadcrumbs. I decided to just sprinkle some breadcrumbs on top of the cakes to get that crunch and skipped flipping them over half way through baking. I also did not have seasoned breadcrumbs in the house so I used whole wheat panko and found a recipe on the Genius Kitchen website for making your own seasoned breadcrumbs. I think this recipe would also be delicious and (very) budget friendly made with canned salmon or frozen pollock fillets.

    • southerncooker on March 11, 2019

      Made in my air fryer. Very tasty.

    • Zosia on April 05, 2020

      These were very tasty but I was really impressed by the texture which was more like a crab cake with identifiable chunks of cooked fish. It was a great way to elevate the frozen haddock fillets I used. I served them with the summer succotash from the book.

  • Open-faced French onion burgers

    • moose1995 on November 11, 2018

      Served these with lettuce wraps instead of buns. Almost a little TOO juicy and messy.

  • Quickest gnocchi Bolognese

    • southerncooker on February 17, 2019

      This was delicious. We topped ours with cottage cheese instead of Ricotta since we like cottage cheese better. I used some of my fresh basil from my kitchen window for topping. Quick and easy in the instant pot.

  • Beef, tomato, and acini di pepe soup

    • southerncooker on September 08, 2019

      Good but I forgot to add the Pecorino Romano cheese which I'll do when I reheat leftovers. I also think I added too much orzo.

  • Unstuffed cabbage bowls

    • southerncooker on January 24, 2019

      Easy and delicious made in the Instant Pot. I had about a cup and a half of brown rice left over from another meal so I just stirred that in at the end. I omitted the raisins and used smoked paprika instead of Hungarian since I didn't have any of the latter.

  • Salmon salad with green beans and egg

    • southerncooker on March 23, 2019

      This was so quick and easy in the Instant Pot. I used some of the wild caught frozen salmon I got at Aldi recently. I used whole tiny frozen green beans from Aldi as well and put them both in the IP frozen along with the eggs. I added one minute of cooking time for the beans and salmon and it was perfect. This was a delicious lunch. I did only eat one boiled egg on my salad instead of two.

  • Tomato-spinach tortellini soup

    • southerncooker on February 24, 2019

      Made for daughter and I. We thought delicious. I used a 5 cheese tortellini instead of 3 since they had some at Aldi.

    • Zosia on December 31, 2018

      The base of this was a tomato-vegetable soup that was creamy but not very rich. I realized after I'd added the tortellini that my package was about 100g more than what was called for; with the extra pasta, this fed 4 generously as a meal. Flavour didn't wow anyone but it made for a nice lunch.

  • Mexican pinto beans with queso

    • southerncooker on February 04, 2019

      Daughter and I loved this one. Hubby thought just ok.

  • Beef Stroganoff noodle soup

    • southerncooker on January 09, 2019

      This was very good but family likes it better not in a soup version. Instead of using just 5 oz of noodles I used the whole 8 oz. package.

  • American-style cheesy beef goulash and macaroni

    • southerncooker on March 30, 2019

      I omitted the red bell pepper since son doesn't enjoy them. This was an Ok version of Goulash but I've had some I've enjoyed more. I did like that it was made quickly in the Instant Pot. I added some black pepper to mine to add a little more flavor.

  • Pot-in-pot Puerto Rican rice and beans

    • southerncooker on September 21, 2019

      Very tasty. I used brown basmati rice so cooked for 22 minutes instead of 12 called for white basmati. I was afraid it might be too long for the beans but it wasn't.

    • Zosia on February 27, 2019

      Delicious! It was well-spiced without being hot, everything was nicely cooked and it made excellent use of pantry items. There was a little too much liquid in the beans for me but it took just a few minutes using the saute function to reduce it. I skipped the avocado and served it with tomatoes, cucumbers and lots of fresh coriander.

  • Buffalo drumsticks with creamy cabbage and kale slaw

    • southerncooker on January 07, 2019

      Son, daughter, son in law and I all agreed this chicken was delicious. I didn't have time to marinate just left in buttermilk, hot sauce mix for a few minutes. I bet it would be even better after a longer marinate. Daughter and I really enjoyed the slaw too. Will be making this one again.

    • Zosia on June 13, 2019

      No air-fryer here so I oven roasted the chicken. I think this is the crispiest oven "fried" chicken I've ever made. I marinated it overnight and the flavours came through. Everyone really enjoyed it and no one noticed that the chicken had been skinned. The tangy slaw was the perfect foil. A new favourite.

  • Spicy fried chicken sandwiches

    • southerncooker on February 04, 2019

      Delicious and the slaw was good too.

  • Everything (but the) bagel chicken roll-ups

    • southerncooker on February 13, 2019

      Made these in my air fryer. Son and I really enjoyed them.

  • Spicy stir-fried chicken and shredded Brussels bowls

    • southerncooker on January 27, 2019

      This was delicious. I used leftovers in an egg roll fried in the air fryer and used mae ploy for the dipping sauce for a Skinnytaste challenge on their What's for Dinner FB page. Also amazing.

  • Mom's skillet chicken pot pie

    • southerncooker on January 22, 2019

      Perfect warm us up for this cold night. Delicious! I made my own rotisserie style chicken in my instant pot for this pie. I cooked mine in my deep cast iron chicken fryer and it was the perfect size.

  • Roasted sausage, peppers and potatoes

    • southerncooker on March 12, 2019

      I loved this. I used the Italian Chicken Sausages called for. I did make a few substitutes. I used one red bell pepper instead of two but my pepper was huge, red potatoes instead of russet, and Italian seasoning instead of rosemary. Husband and son hate rosemary. I then followed all the other ingredients and instructions.

    • mjes on March 13, 2019

      Unimpressive but a decent base on which to build.

  • Petite meatloaf dinner

    • southerncooker on January 03, 2019

      Son in law didn't care for the meatloaf but the rest of us enjoyed it. Everyone enjoyed the green beans and daughter, son in law and I loved the carrots. I did a recipe and a half to feed the 5 of us.

    • Zosia on February 03, 2019

      We loved the vegetables but the meatloaf wasn't our favourite. There was a little too much ketchup for us though I used only half and I personally prefer my onions to be less conspicuous (I generally cook them first for recipes like this). The meat and carrots were nicely cooked in the allotted time but the green beans, which must have been on the thin side, were done 7 minutes sooner.

  • Lemon-roasted fish and cauli-rice

    • southerncooker on January 27, 2019

      I found out I love roasted cauliflower rice. The fish was good too.

  • London broil with tomatoes, red onion, and balsamic

    • southerncooker on January 07, 2019

      Son and I enjoyed this one. The meat was cooked in the air fryer. Salad was good but will be even better with garden tomatoes.

  • Glazed Korean BBQ chicken wings

    • southerncooker on December 08, 2018

      I did the drumettes and flats that I bought already cut apart. This recipe is from the air fryer section. My air fryer is small so it would have taken several rounds to get them all fried, so I opted for the oven version of this recipe. I made the marinade early in the day and left in fridge about around 8 hours. It was a hit with son, daughter, son-in-law and myself. Hubby doesn't eat chicken so I made him something else.

    • Zosia on June 26, 2019

      We loved these! I used skinless drumsticks and marinated them for only an hour and they were full of flavour. I didn't have applesauce for the marinade - it's not a staple in my kitchen - and they were delicious without.

  • Italian sausage and pepper calzones

    • southerncooker on March 02, 2019

      Delicious. Had a little problems with the dough but I'm not great at rolling and folding. Some of them didn't look great but didn't deter the taste. Son said best dough and calzones he'd ever had. We used mozzarella, Italian Chicken Sausages and marinara sauce (for dipping) from Aldi's. Made them in the air fryer.

    • Zosia on December 30, 2018

      This was a fun and tasty way to enjoy sausages and peppers. The dough was a little finicky and tore in a few places while I was trying to shape the calzones but my patches held and there was minimal leakage. I followed the instructions for oven-baking.

  • Wild salmon with avocado-basil salad

    • southerncooker on March 20, 2019

      I got some Wild Caught frozen salmon recently from Aldi - a 2 pound bag for just over $4. I made one for me in the air fryer as instructed in the book and topped with a half recipe of the salad that goes with this. It was delicious.

  • Crispy salmon fish sticks with lime-dill dipping sauce

    • southerncooker on March 22, 2019

      I only did a fourth recipe of the fish and a half on the dipping sauce. Son doesn't like salmon and hubby's still not eating very good and did feel like fish. Son ate some beer battered fish fillets with some of the dipping sauce. I did the salmon in the air fryer. I wasn't sure about salmon as a fish stick but it was really good. I was out of dill but everything was still good but bet it would have been even better with the addition of dill.

  • Shepherd's pie stew

    • southerncooker on December 23, 2018

      Daughter made this and shared with me. It was delicious and very filling on a cold day.

  • Kielbasa and cabbage

    • southerncooker on February 06, 2019

      Good but hubby didn't care for it.

  • Caramelized onion soup with cauliflower and melted Gruyère

    • southerncooker on February 17, 2019

      I enjoyed the addition of cauliflower in this soup. It was great with one of the garlic knots from the Skinnytaste blog.

  • Spinach and cheese manicotti

    • southerncooker on July 29, 2019

      This was delicious, daughter, son and I all agreed. Pasta was cooked perfect.

  • Turkey breast with sweet potatoes, green beans, and gravy

    • jenmacgregor18 on October 21, 2019

      I used a whole turkey breast. This is pretty easy and timing was good. Lots of good, peppery gravy. My only problem - I had a hard time fishing the sweet potatoes out without them disintegrating. It was easy to put together, the turkey was good. But the sweet potatoes kind of got lost and tasted like the gravy more than sweet potatoes. I don't think I'd repeat. The turkey breast & gravy was good in IP. But I'd cook potatoes & green beans separately.

  • Dijon-maple chicken with Brussels and butternut

    • julesamomof2 on February 19, 2020

      A decent weekday dinner, nothing special but nice for a healthy everyday dish. I used sweet potatoes instead of butternut squash because that's what I had on hand and it was good. My only complaint was my sauce was a little thin, and I didn't achieve the look of the picture, and actually wasn't as flavorful as I had hoped. Perhaps a run under the broiler would help.

    • Zosia on February 16, 2020

      Really delicious! The sauce is tangy rather than sweet and gives the chicken a burnished look - no one even noticed it was skinless. You don't want to skip the direction to line the baking sheet with parchment/foil as the sauce burns easily (kitchen was quite smokey) and you might want to give the vegetables a toss half way through cooking for the same reason. I doubled the vegetables.

    • bwhip on January 15, 2019

      So easy, so tasty! This recipe was remarkably flavorful and interesting, despite such simple ingredients and easy prep. The only change I made was to use boneless, skinless thighs, which worked great for us. The combination of Brussels and butternut was really good, and the sauce was perfect. I’ll make this again for sure.

  • Tandoori chicken with vegetables

    • Zosia on December 29, 2018

      Great flavour and the timing worked well. I particularly liked the high ratio of vegetables to chicken and the method of broiling at the end to add extra colour.

  • Pesce primavera

    • Zosia on March 01, 2020

      This was a very nice combination of vegetables and cut as directed, they cooked in the same amount of time. They were done in 5 minutes less time in my oven but so was the fish so the timing worked well. Flavours were good - not spectacular - but family enjoyed it so it will be repeated.

  • Dad's Czech meat patties with potatoes and cucumber salad

    • Zosia on February 25, 2020

      Simply flavoured comfort food. I'd never had this type of patty with cabbage in it and I think it prevented the lean meat mixture from drying out. I used green cabbage that I thought wouldn't soften much during the short baking time so I sauteed it first until it wilted. There was still a little crunch to it in the patties but it wasn't tough. Family enjoyed the meal.

  • Cheesy turkey, leek, and potato gratin

    • Zosia on March 01, 2019

      This is described as a gratin but my family thought it was a different take on Shepherd's pie, one everyone really enjoyed. The turkey filling was moist and flavourful and the potatoes, especially the ones on the very top, were golden and crispy and delicious. I made this dairy free, omitting the cheese and replacing the milk with stock. I brushed the potatoes with a little olive oil before broiling.

  • Bacon-wrapped BBQ ranch chicken salad

    • Zosia on January 27, 2019

      Another great chicken recipe from this book. Turkey bacon, a recommended substitute, worked really well in keeping the chicken moist. We used only about half the BBQ sauce and (store-bought) ranch dressing and it was plenty for us.

  • Weeknight chicken souvlaki

    • Zosia on March 14, 2019

      Quick and very tasty. Cooking the marinade with the chicken and onions ensured that none of the flavour was left behind.

  • Garlicky shrimp with smashed chickpea "mofongo"

    • Zosia on January 23, 2019

      The flavours were good - very garlicky but tasty - but the dish was quite heavy to me. I also discovered with this recipe that I don't care for the texture of mashed chickpeas, and they made up a large portion of the dish. I used 2 skillets to reduce the cook time.

  • Arroz con pollo

    • Zosia on April 13, 2019

      I mistakenly defrosted boneless thighs for this and had to adjust for it so I can't attest to the success of the recipe's cook time in the instant pot but I can say that this was very tasty.

  • Chicken and lentil soup

    • Zosia on February 11, 2020

      Delicious soup with great depth of flavour. It tasted as though much more effort had gone into it than just putting raw ingredients in the pot and letting the appliance do its thing. It was even better the next day though did require extra stock to thin it out.

  • Navy bean, bacon, and spinach soup

    • Zosia on February 03, 2019

      Delicious cold weather soup - simple to make but rich in flavour. I used an immersion blender in the pot to break some of it down and thicken it after it had cooked.

  • Turkey cheeseburger soup

    • Zosia on February 20, 2020

      I didn't quite get the cheeseburger connection but this was a tasty soup. I omitted the flour at the start with a plan to add it at the end if it was needed but it wasn't as the pureed cauliflower did its job of thickening the soup (without anyone knowing it was there!). The vegetables were very nicely cooked but the turkey was a little chewy, but I suppose that's to be expected with extra-lean. I also used 454g/1 lb turkey.

    • Harptist on January 19, 2020

      This soup turned out really well. I used 1 lb turkey rather than half a pound.

  • Shawarma-spiced grilled chicken thighs with tahini

    • Zosia on January 18, 2019

      Great flavour and simple to put together especially if you prepared the chicken the night before.

  • Tex-Mex turkey tacos

    • Zosia on May 05, 2020

      Tasty and family enjoyed it. I cooked it stovetop, simmering the filling for an hour to let the flavours meld after first browning the turkey in the pan. I also omitted the onions and tomatoes from the guacamole but included them in a fresh salsa I made to serve with this.

  • Grilled swordfish with summer succotash and basil oil

    • Zosia on April 05, 2020

      Even made with frozen corn, frozen fava beans and hot house cherry tomatoes, the succotash was delicious...I can only imagine how much better it will be with fresh summer produce. I didn't make the swordfish - that will be for another day - but served the salad with (modified) codfish cakes from the same book.

  • Nuggets three ways: breaded cauliflower nuggets

    • Zosia on January 27, 2019

      The method worked perfectly (I oven-roasted them) resulting in a crisp coating and cauliflower that was tender and held its shape. The flavour was fairly neutral and went well with just lemon juice but I would have liked a bit more oomph. I think it would be delicious with the buffalo chicken nuggets coating. I used the recommended amount (and number of pieces) of cauliflower but needed only 2 eggs.

  • Nuggets three ways: Buffalo chicken nuggets

    • Zosia on January 27, 2019

      These were a huge hit. The coating was crisp and flavourful and the chicken was moist. I followed the oven roasting instructions.

    • averythingcooks on March 18, 2020

      This book is why we finally researched and bought an air fryer! This recipe resulted in juicy bites of chicken surrounded by the flavourful crunch we wanted. Frank's Redhot beaten into the egg gave them a lovely hit of heat and they were delicious with a simple blue cheese dip and a side of coleslaw. A definite repeat.

  • Shrimp quesadillas with stuffed avocados

    • stef on November 10, 2018

      This was a quick supper and we enjoyed it. A repeat

  • Crispy chicken schnitzel dinner

    • stef on July 11, 2019

      This was quick and easy to prepare. I added a red pepper to the veggies. Chicken cooked in 15 minutes but putting it under the broiler didn't make it a golden colour. Still very nice and moist. Will repeat

  • Seafood fried brown rice

    • stef on March 07, 2019

      A good basic recipe. Came together quickly. I used all shrimp.

  • Creamy cheddar-broccoli soup

    • averythingcooks on October 26, 2019

      A fridge clean out netted me 2 cups of broccoli florets needing a "home" so I decided to try a new version of broccoli soup. I like this version with the additions of carrots, potatoes and celery but full disclosure means admitting using 2% milk, regular cheese and I certainly puréed mine more throughly than the one in the picture. It is good and was simple to 1/2 and I will probably make it again ....but I'm not sure it's better than my 2 favorite versions (one of which is certainly far richer than this one).

  • Cheesy jalapeño popper stuffed chicken

    • averythingcooks on March 22, 2020

      Air fryer expts continue! This book has me making my own Italian bread crumbs (in addition to the plain ones I always make) from the bag of bread ends saved in freezer and they worked well here (& for my recent chicken nuggets). I wondered about 3 jalapeños because mine seemed huge and once I had a "mountain of diced pepper" I stopped at 2. Of course, we both agreed they could have used more - I really wish authors would give volume or mass measurements to prevent this guess work. I also think my cutlets should have had more surface area - it was tough to seal the ends with the toothpicks BUT the crispy & flavourful chicken rolls beside a green salad made a great dinner.

  • Philly cheesesteak egg rolls

    • averythingcooks on May 04, 2020

      This was another air fryer success! I used a mix of red & orange peppers and yellow & red onions and some minced garlic for the veg (crisper cleanout :) The recipe has you use the airfryer for everything (cooking the steak and then the veg AND THEN the actual egg rolls) so.....no - not how I did it. I used a cast iron skillet for the veg followed by the thinly sliced steak. I followed the 1/4 cup filling guidelines and we got 8 (not 12) egg rolls. They really did crisp up beautifully in the airfryer (the olive oil spray certainly helps). I made a quick dip by mixing leftover ceasar salad dressing with a bit of sour cream & some hot sauce. With a side salad, this made for a great meal. And since I have more wrappers - I have found a southwestern filling (thanks EYB!) to try this with a different spin.

  • Chicken-avocado burgers with jalapeño slaw

    • bwhip on January 29, 2019

      These were very tasty, especially with the slaw on the burger. The color of the burgers was certainly unusually pale, but to be expected with chicken and avocado, and didn't really develop grill char marks like the ones in the photo for whatever reason. The patties are quite fragile, but didn't fall apart when flipping as I was very careful and used a thin spatula. Nice when you want a flavorful burger, but also want to keep it light.

  • Garlic-Dijon roasted pork tenderloin with potatoes and green beans

    • heidimia on February 04, 2019

      Really delicious and easy recipe.

  • Crispy beach fish tacos

    • flipptyflipflops on May 13, 2020

      Tasted a little bland, also needed a but more time in the oven than 10 minutes

  • Coconut chicken and butternut curry in a hurry

    • Sleeth on December 28, 2019

      Tasty for the WW points, easy to make in about an hour on the stove (I don’t own a pressure cooker). Perfect for a cold, rainy day. I made no alterations, though topped with raisins and coconut, and served it with homemade roti. Even better because I used a butternut squash grown in my garden.
