10. Giada's  Chicken Piccata — An easy weeknight meal, this classic Italian chicken recipe is topped with a sauce made with lemon and capers.

9. Ina's Perfect Roast Chicken — Bring the family together for a whole chicken dinner. Ina's recipe is simple and classic. The cavity is stuffed with thyme, lemon and garlic. Onions, carrots and fennel are spread around the pan to absorb the bird's flavorful juices.

7. Tyler's Chicken Enchiladas — Packed with tender corn and a duo of green and chipotle chiles, Tyler’s cumin-spiced chicken mixture is rolled inside soft tortillas, which are later topped with enchilada sauce and cheddar then baked.

6. Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies — Save time and oven space by preparing these easy no-bake cookies made with oatmeal and a classic peanut butter-chocolate combo.

5. Banana Bread — Best when topped with a pat of butter, drizzled with honey or served with vanilla ice cream, this five-star recipe is an easy-to-prepare classic that won’t disappoint.

4. Ellie's Zucchini Parmesan Crisps — Turn abundant, fresh zucchini into Parmesan-coated zucchini chips for snacking.

3. Alton's Baked Macaroni and Cheese — Alton tops his cheesy pasta with panko breadcrumbs to add crunch and texture to this decadent dish.

2. Alton's Guacamole — Alton’s timeless recipe features just a handful of classic ingredients, like avocado, cilantro and lime juice, and is best served at room temperature after sitting for one hour; this time allows the ingredients to marry and the flavors to develop.
