Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
This recipe is a winner. Big time. For the record, I doubled the sauce and used it for only two servings, and it was the perfect amount and perfect taste. As far as the rest of it, I tried to simplify things for myself as much as possible. I used pre-cooked but fresh cocktail shrimp, pre-cut green onions, pre-minced garlic and added microwave-steamed peas and carrots. The one thing that took the longest is the rice, and if I'd had the forethought to buy instanct rice, I would've done that too. Bravo, foodgu1, a fast and seriously delicious recipe.

Shahi Paneer

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
This was really good. I used diced tomatoes and 1/2 can (about 7 ounces) of tomato sauce instead of the tomatoes (no pureeing) and used 1/2 Half and Half and 1/2 evaporated skim milk instead of the cream to bring down the calories. I also added some potatoes in with the tomatoes because I didn't have that much paneer on hand, and it was delicious and a bit heartier. I found it slightly bland, so I added about 1/2 tablespoon of Garam Masala to kick it up, which immediately did the trick. Really good recipe.

Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
This was the best Indian food I have ever cooked. Possibly the best food I've ever cooked. I substituted the cream for evaporated fat free milk (and a splash of half and half), used onion powder because I had no onion, and used only 3 tablespoons of butter in the sauce. The first time I tasted it as I cooked, my mind was blown as to how delicious it was. The final product was even better, and I'm going to make this a staple in my kitchen.

Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I really liked this recipe. Like others, I substituted most of the water for pineapple juice. I made 5 servings (used only one baking dish) and put it in the oven for 15 minutes. I then dumped in my full can of pineapple chunks, covered it, and put it in for another 7 minutes. Then, I put it back in, uncovered, for another 5 minutes. You could probably just keep it covered the whole time, but I think uncovering it got the pineapples cooked a little more, which I enjoyed. I think it would have been even better if they'd been grilled beforehand. I think one of the bigger things I'd change next time is that I'd dip the chicken in egg or egg wash before dredging it in the bread crumb concoction. It friend up fine, but after I took it out of the oven, the seasonings basically just fell off because it had nothing to stick to. Still, I totally disagree that the pan frying step should be skipped. It helped season the chicken really well. I'll definitely make this again!
