  3. I love Chinese food! I wish I could eat more of it. There’s so many different kinds that I love to eat. Probably one of my favorites is sweet-and-sour chicken with an egg roll and egg drop soup.

  4. I LOVE Chinese takeout even though it is so bad for me. This is a great round-up! I’m probably going to try the “rivals” The Cheesecake Factory salad. We’re heading up there (an hour drive…so worth it) on half price cheesecake day 🙂

  6. Thanks for putting all these delicious recipes in ONE place. I think I’d love to try the Slimming World Best Ever Chinese Chicken in the Slow Cooker and Instant Pot Chinese Beef & Beans from Recipe This. I have never made any Chinese food in my crockpot and I use my crockpot a lot and I’m always on the hunt for new crockpot recipes.

  8. We love Asian food in general (I’m half-Japanese) so I know a bunch of these would go over really well in our household 🙂 I’ll have to try a few of these with gluten-free substitutions (I’m allergic to wheat) 🙂

  9. These look and sound delicious. I am a big fan of Chinese take out food. Not sure I would even attempt to make it myself.

  10. I was meant to stumble upon this post. We do Chinese take out a lot! We should really start to make these dishes at home. They all look amazing.

  11. What a great compilation of recipes. I LOVE Chinese food and always do take out, but it will be handy to have these recipes to make at home.

  12. My kids LOVE chinese food as well – I’m not very good at making it though. I keep trying and fail miserable every single time. I just wish I could make the friend rice correctly!

  13. All of these recipes sound delicious. I love making Chinse food almost as much as I enjoy eating Chinese food.

  14. I think I tried making beef and broccoli once. I haven’t had wonton soup in a long time, this would be a great recipe to start with.

  15. My Teen Guide says

    Oh please don’t make me choose! I would get all of them. Fried rice, beef and broccoli, wonton, fall off the bone spare ribs… argh. My mind is racing and I just want to go out and get these delicious chinese dishes. Thanks for the links to the recipes. I will try my best to make them at home. If I can’t, Chinese take out is just a phone call away. 🙂

  16. Chinese food is my total comfort food and I make a mean sweet and sour chicken and fried rice dish. Would love to learn how to recreate broccoli beef…it’s another favorite!
