The secret to the best, juiciest shredded chicken? Cooking boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a flavorful sauce in the Instant Pot. Then on taco night, everyone builds their own dinner, piling tortillas (or beds of crunchy lettuce) high with the seasoned shredded meat and all our favorite toppings. A creamy avocado sauce spiked with lime juice does double duty, standing in for both guacamole and sour cream. The result is saucy shredded chicken tacos topped with a cool avocado dressing for the ultimate taco dinner.

Paella is an iconic Spanish dish, known and loved by many. It's named after the pan the dish is cooked in, and originated in Valencia, home to wetlands that produce the short-grain rice essential to the dish. True Valencian paella is made with chicken, rabbit, green beans, butter beans, and sometimes snail, duck, or artichokes. This recipe, which features a mix of shrimp and fresh veggies, veers from the classic, so I'm respectfully calling it an “arroz” — a rice. It uses the same methodology as paella, but with different ingredients. See the full recipe post [HERE](https://www.thekitchn.com/arroz-con-gambas-recipe-23149571)

Imagine crispy, breaded chicken cutlets with all of the flavor of ranch dipping sauce. Now stop dreaming, because these chicken breasts are precisely that. They're crispy, golden, and intensely flavorful with that signature herby flavor of ranch dipping sauce. The secret? Seasoning the breadcrumbs with ranch seasoning packets to give it a bold pop of herby flavor. And the best part is that you don't have to fry them, either — these oven-baked chicken breasts get crisp and golden without ever having to heat up any oil. They're the perfect balance between easy and flavorful — and who doesn't like ranch? See full recipe post [HERE](https://www.thekitchn.com/ranch-chicken-recipe-23135074)
You only need one pan to make this quick and cheesy ravioli dinner — no pot of boiling water required. Skip that usual step and instead, pan-fry your ravioli in a hot skillet with an abundance of tender, caramelized mushrooms made rich with garlic butter and a splash of balsamic. Top it all off with lots of grated Pecorino or Parmesan cheese, for good measure, then toss the skillet under the broiler for a few minutes to ensure a melty, browned and crisp top.
