1. Chinese “Takeout” Chicken by Ashira Mirsky

A tasty one-pan Chinese fakeout-takeout chicken dinner with onions and peppers. Serve over rice or your favorite grain to make this a complete meal.

2. Chinese Crispy Beef (Paleo, Gluten-Free) by Tamar Teitelbaum

I love “Better than Takeout” Chinese food. Ordering in definitely has its place in my life. It is a convenience and timesaver. However most of the time, I would much rather avoid feeding my family excess salt and any msg. So, I have created this Chinese Crispy Beef recipe. It tastes better than even my favorite takeout spot. Plus, it’s a natural and healthy dish; paleo, dairy-free, and gluten-free.

3. Chinese Chow Mein from the Nitra Cookbook

Who doesn’t like Chinese food? This chicken chow mein with celery, peppers, mushrooms, baby corn and of course crunchy chow mein noodles tastes like the real deal.

4. Chinese Fried Rice by Estee Kafra

We made this the other night to accompany grilled chicken. The kids and adults both enjoyed, and the best part is that it was so simple!

5. Chinese Sauteed Chicken and Vegetables from the Dining In Cookbook

A delicious and easy Chinese fakeout-takeout dinner that only dirties one pan!

6. Chinese Style Chicken with Broccoli from the Nitra Cookbook

7. Sesame Chicken by Rivky Kleiman

Rivky Kleiman’s classic Sesame Chicken, from her latest cookbook Simply, is the perfect crowdpleaser for a holiday meal or party.

8. Easy Fake-Out Chinese Chicken and Vegetables by Sarah Botwinick

This easy one-pan Chinese Chicken with broccoli, peppers, and onions tastes just like the real thing. Great choice for a midweek dinner that everyone will enjoy.

9. Crispy Skirt Mushroom Potstickers by Michal Frischman

We are going through a potstickers phase in my house. It’s not the easiest or quickest to make, but delicious really does trump all, and if you make ahead and freeze, that definitely helps.

10. Takeout Style Orange Chicken by Michal Frischman

Chinese-takeout inspired, this would be great over some white rice. Don’t see yourself juicing mandarins? Use orange juice with pulp from the carton and skip the zest. Still good!

11. Wontons in Garlic Sauce by Miriam (Pascal) Cohen

This recipe began with my obsession with wontons and garlic sauce from a particular Chinese restaurant that’s nowhere near my home. Naturally, I had to recreate it myself. Since then, these wontons have become the stuff of Pascal family legend. It’s my family’s all-time favorite Yom Tov appetizer. The only downside? It’s pretty much guaranteed to upstage basically any other dish you serve at the same meal!

12. Beef and Broccoli by Sina Mizrahi

There’s a deep-seated love of Chinese food in my house. But I don’t love cooking it from scratch. Many of the ingredients are either hard to find, expensive, or unhealthy. So I came up with this Beef and Broccoli to appease my crew. It isn’t as unhealthy, it’s definitely uncomplicated, and it’s pretty close to the real deal. A definite win-win!

13. General Tso’s Tempeh by Alison Gutwaks

This is the plant-based version of the Chinese takeout favorite General Tso’s Chicken. The tempeh is pan-fried and the sticky sweet sauce tastes like the real thing. Serve with your favorite grain and a quick-pickled salad for a delicious supper.

14. Mini Egg Rolls from the Dining In Cookbook

A real winner!

15. Chicken Chow Mein from the Dining In Cookbook

You might enjoy some chow mein noodles with your meal. Mix them in or eat them on the side.

16. Light Sesame Chicken by Victoria Dwek

When you’re looking for that great takeout-restaurant taste with a fraction of the sugar and fat, this lightly fried sesame chicken is a flavorful favorite.

17. One-Pan Chicken and Broccoli by Rena Tuchinsky

If you love Chinese chicken and broccoli you’ll absolutely love this meal! What’s even better, it takes less time to prepare than placing your takeout order.
