What to cook this week

Cashew Chicken and Asparagus

Tyler Essary / TODAY

It doesn’t get more versatile than this Chinese American-inspired chicken and asparagus dish. The chicken can be swapped with shrimp or tofu, and the asparagus with broccoli. But no matter how you shake it, it won’t take more than half an hour to make.

Coconut Curry Noodle Soup

Casey Barber

As we enter the first official full week of winter, we of course had to include a hearty soup in the mix. This Thai-inspired coconut curry noodle recipe is packed with protein, loaded with veggies and all tied together with a finishing squeeze of lime. Take one sip of the simmering creamy broth next time you’re under the weather and you’ll swear off canned soup for good.

Slow-Cooker Pasta Alfredo 3 Ways

Casey Barber

Crockpot fans, this one’s for you. Our slow-cooker pasta Alfredo recipe calls for cooking the noodles and sauce all together, meaning the only work you need to do is decide on add-ins. Keeping it classic? Opt for chicken or shrimp. Vegetarians in the family? Spinach and broccoli pair perfectly. Just here for the cheese? A Parmesan and Pecorino Romano blend is all you need.

Chicken-Chile Taquitos with Creamy Dipping Sauce

Casey Barber

You could wait for Taco Tuesday to make these Mexican-inspired chicken-chile taquitos, but when you see how easy they are to prepare you’ll be tempted to serve them every night. A pre-roasted rotisserie chicken is the trick to making meal-prep a breeze, and you can store any extra in the freezer for up to three months. Just reheat in the oven, pair with our creamy dipping sauce and you’ve got yourself the perfect finger food for New Year’s Eve festivities.

Cake Pops

Ali Rosen

The easiest dessert to make is also the easiest dessert to clean up. No need to wash extra plates, cutlery and serving utensils when sharing cake pops with a crowd. We recommend dusting them with edible sparkles for a bright start to the new year. And if you’re giving Dry January a go, why not try toasting at midnight with a sweet treat instead?
