Main Dishes

Honey Sriracha Nut Oven Fried Chicken – Melanie Makes

Marinated in buttermilk, then coated in panko bread crumbs and mixed nuts before being bathed in a delicious honey Sriracha sauce– this recipe is the definition of sweet heat.

This seven ingredient Honey Sriracha Nut Oven Fried Chicken says so long to spattering oil and instead gets its crisp from the oven. This chicken’s amazing crunchy nut coating makes it impossible to tell the difference that this recipe is baked and not fried! Serve on sandwich rolls with salad greens and tomato.

THIS is a sandwich!

Grilled Sausage and Pepper Pizza – Diary of a Recipe Collector

This pizza dinner is topped with delicious Italian Style Smoked Chicken Sausage, peppers, onions, basil pesto, and Fontina cheese. A great option for pizza night, this pizza recipe is a favorite amongst kids and adults alike!

In this unique recipe, pizza dough is placed directly on the grill for an extra smoky touch. If you already have provolone or mozzarella cheese in the fridge, just use it instead. You’ll still get a creamy, crunchy, smoky style pizza perfect for weeknight dinners or weekend gatherings.
