Simple homemade dinners are the name of the game during the week when you’ve got a few too many things to juggle. When The Chew Crew makes their favorite take-out dishes at home, what they’re really doing is showing you how easy it can be to throw together a quick, easily and delicious weeknight meal.
Each of the co-hosts relies on simple recipes to get them through the week. Clinton recently threw together a cornmeal-crusted chicken paillard in under 5 minutes (also check out Daphne's lightened-up Chicken Paillard); Carla whipped up a chicken soup using leftover chicken wings; Daphne made vegetarian chili using vegetables she already had in her fridge; and Michael used some leftover pancetta in a simple pasta dish with tomatoes and basil.
Save those 10-step recipes for the weekend! In fact, use your weekends to whip up some big-batches of grains and rice, or take the day to make a recipe that can be cooked low and slow with family by your side!
