Classic Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables
A whole chicken roasted with vegetables is a real crowd pleaser. Or, you can just reward yourself for a job well done and have roast chicken for the rest of the week: In sandwiches, a chef salad, toasty quesadillas, or even chicken hash. Why not!
Daily Dish
Roast Leg of Lamb
Roast leg of lamb is a spring classic often served at Easter-time. This dish is also perfect for a group coming over for dinner. Everyone loves a roast leg of lamb, and the whole meal is cooked together so you can entertain friends without spending a lot of time in the kitchen.
Daily Dish
Hashed Brussels Sprouts
This is a nice twist on the traditional Brussels sprout recipe, and a perfect dish to bring for a holiday dinner someone else is hosting. Lemon zest and white wine or vermouth give it an extra zip.
Daily Dish
Mashed Potatoes with Garlic
Mashed potatoes are a staple of the holiday table for good reason. The addition of garlic adds a little more flavor, and if you want to up the ante, you can toss in a few peeled yellow onions along with the potatoes and garlic. Count on one Idaho size potato per person.
Daily Dish
Savory Swiss Lamb Stew
The Swiss give thanks for a bountiful harvest with a savory lamb stew that takes the edge off a cold winter’s night. Exotic spices and lots of red wine give this easy dish a comforting flavor that will have friends begging for more
Daily Dish
Easy Baked Ham
Adapted from the Barefoot Contessa cookbook, this is the perfect centerpiece for a festive occasion with friends. If you add small potatoes to the roasting pan for the final 30 minutes and serve a simple green salad or broccoli on the side, you’ll be the mastermind of a great party!
Daily Dish
Roasted Broccoli
This healthy side dish is a lot easier than pie because you can stick it in the oven and forget about it for 25-30 minutes while you create the main event. We like to add a little grated parmesan near the end to add a little extra zip.

ABOUT CHOWGUYS

My sons started asking for simple recipe ideas when they were in college. They were tired of cafeteria food and going out all the time. I love food and have been cooking since I was in my 20s. So I started emailing recipe ideas which they’d try and then share with friends. We’re still doing this, and I started Chowguys.com to help other guys get comfortable in the kitchen, eat better at home, and have some fun along the way. Cooking and eating well doesn’t have to be complicated. We’ve tried to keep our recipes simple without dumbing down the results. Don’t worry too much about precise measurements. Learn to trust your instincts and you’ll be surprised how well dinner will turn out. – Duncan Pollock
