The Most Popular Recipes in January

Want to know what the most well-loved recipes for the month of January were? You know the ones: the recipes our Simply Sous Chefs (that’s you!) have been cooking, sharing, and talking about nonstop. Read on to see what made the cut!

We made it through what felt like the longest month, and our team is welcoming February with open arms!

As always, we are working behind-the-scenes drumming up new recipes, taking all the photos, and sending those recipes to our Simply Testers who make and test every single recipe that goes on our site. But before we get carried away, let's see which recipes you were loving the MOST in January.

It was a big month of easy appetizers, comfort food, soups and salads. In case you missed any of these fan favorites, it's not too late to get in on the (delicious) fun!

    You all want your wings, and you want them fast and crispy and we don’t blame you! We love this easy recipe with the spicy gojuchang sauce, but you are more than welcome to pair the wings with any dipping sauce your heart desires.

  • Skillet Chicken and Rice

    Chicken and rice are basically best friends, and we have no intention of breaking up this famous duo. In fact, we made a few tweaks here and there to make our version easier, tastier, and more kid-friendly than ever!

  • Slow Cooker Spinach Feta Dip

    This dip won’t last long after you’ve made it: it’s just that good. It’s creamy to boot, has a little tang (thank you, feta!) and is packed with spinach. Serve with pita chips or veggies - day made!

    Shepherd’s Pie is a comfort classic for sure, but we felt it needed a little Tex-Mex twist. We added black beans, corn, salsa, but still kept the potatoes and cheese! The end result will surely make your taste buds sing!
