Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken
Made tonight finally. I had attempted a few nights ago, but the dog ate all of the raw chicken when I left the room for a minute!! I had simmered the sauce for about 8-10 minutes as others had suggested. Tonight, however, I just went straight to cooking the chicken and poured the previously simmered sauce on it. I left everything else the same. This was just ok, and will not likely make again. I have other chicken recipes (like the Kung Pao recipe from this site) that we like better. We did add some peanuts to our individual servings after it was cooked as it seemed like it needed something. Broccoli would have probably been good mixed in too. Also, the smell was a bit overwhelming, but the taste was better than the smell.

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese
This was just okay to us. It seemed dry, and not very creamy or cheesy. Felt like I should have put a can of cheddar cheese condensed soup in it. We actually didn't even finish it, and several days later after no one ate any more of it, I threw it out. I was disappointed, as I expected it to be better since all of the other "Chef John" recipes we have tried have been awesome!! I only gave it two stars because I will not be making this again, but it was still edible.

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff
This was a pretty good recipe. I followed directions exactly except had one can of Healthy Request soup so used that instead after seeing the sodium content. Split the noodles into two pans at the with ground beef for most of us, and a small pan of soy "ground beef" for my vegetarian daughter. It was a solid dinner, but sort of tasted like a Hamburger Helper from a box kind of thing. May make again if short on ideas.
