The Gadget Guru lists her five favorite recipes from 100 Recipes.

In celebration of our latest publication, 100 Recipes—a book which lists, in our estimation, the 100 most essential recipes in the history of the Test Kitchen—our beloved television personalities have each compiled a list of their five favorite recipes from the book. Below, the Gadget Guru Lisa McManus lists hers, including a simple yet elegant recipe for pan-seared chicken breasts.


1. Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts

You might grab a package of boneless skinless chicken breasts for dinner. It seems easy… and can go so wrong. This recipe fixes everything.

2. Weeknight Roast Chicken

(Yeah, we eat a lot of chicken in my family.) Roasting it in a searing-hot skillet in the oven instantly solves a lot of problems that arise when trying to evenly cook dark and light meat. Plus, it’s quick.

3. British-Style Currant Scones

This is what a scone is. This is why scones are great.

4. Pork Tinga

This dish has a really addictive taste, nice combination of textures, and it’s not hard to make.

5. Chocolate Pots de Crème

Big flavor, rich and decadent, and so good. (Plus, you get to say pots de crème.) Sort of impressive, but actually pretty easy to make. Get the right chocolate, or it will be harder to nail the texture.

Find these recipes and 95 others in 100 Recipes. What’s your favorite Test Kitchen recipe? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
