It’s hard to believe, but 2021 is about to end. It’s time to look back and see which recipes you have been cooking this year. It is a pretty diverse round-up featuring all-time crowd favorite dishes and some worldly cuisine mashups we expected at the beginning of the year.

Once again, chicken seems to be one of the most beloved ingredients for home cooks. And we can’t blame you; you can never go wrong with nicely cooked chicken for any meal of the day!

Without further ado, here are SideChef’s Top 10 Recipes, counting down to the most popular of all.

10. Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings

These Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings are easy, simple, take less effort but flavorful, and most importantly they only need 5 ingredients to make! Seasoning your chicken wing with lemon pepper seasoning and flour will not only make the taste wonderful with the refreshing flavor but also make the skin become so crispy. Finishing your cooking by brushing with butter mixture will bring these chicken wings to another level! What are you waiting for, let’s get your wings done before the game starts!

9. Healthy Zucchini Brownies

Here is a super easy and quick recipe for healthy brownies with zucchini. Zucchini will make your brownie moist and rich while balancing the cocoa flavor. It’s the perfect ingredient for fudgy brownies, and unless you tell you used zucchini, no one will know!

8. Sheet Pan Lemon Chicken with Parmesan Asparagus

This sheet pan lemon chicken with parmesan asparagus is a simple dish that everyone can make. It’s tasty and full of nutrients and protein from chicken breast and asparagus. The perfect amount of lemon and the right cooking time will make the chicken breast tender and tasty. Also, dijon mustard will make it more flavorful and more fragrant with herb de Provence which is one of the best spices for spring! It’s even better when paired with parmesan asparagus that is cooked in the right amount of time!

7. Garlic Roasted Smashed Potatoes

You can’t go wrong with these tender, buttery, garlicky potatoes as a side dish for any occasion. From weeknight dinners to date nights, these potatoes will be a new staple on your table. Our secret ingredient? A little baking soda to really help the potatoes get those crispy edges we can’t get enough of. Feel free to throw in a pinch or two of your favorite dried herbs to punch up the flavor!

6. Asian-Style Pork Tenderloin

This Asian-style pork tenderloin with ginger orange marmalade is the perfect centerpiece for your dinner table! A flavorful spice mix rub gives the pork a deliciously savory crust. Served with a zesty ginger orange marmalade, it’s a sweet and tangy flavor combination no one can resist!

5. Sheet Pan Sweet Sour Cashew Chicken

This recipe combines 2 well-known Asian-inspired dishes into a sheet pan and those recipes are the sweet-sour chicken and stir fry cashew chicken. Perfectly cooked chicken and vegetables with crunchy roasted cashew coated in a sweet and sour sauce that has applesauce and apple cider vinegar as a highlighted main ingredient for bringing up the tangy flavor in this fall!
