I Need Recipe Riffs to Shake Up My Meal Routine

On this week’s episode of Dinner SOSfood director and host Chris Morocco talks to caller Maya about basic “meal frameworks” that can easily be adapted.

Maya’s meal frameworks are dishes she understands how to make and doesn’t often stray from. She’s looking for more recipes that she can add to her repertoire that will let her experiment with a structure that she knows (and trusts!). Chris and guest host Claire Saffitz get to work thinking of recipes that leave room for inspiration rather than needing to be followed to a T.

Claire’s latest go-to framework? Noodles that lean into whatever produce, leftover protein (like sliced ​​steak or shredded chicken), and pantry ingredients you have on hand. Claire also loves dressing up crispy cutlets and ground meat.

Chris chooses to tackle the skillet chicken thigh that seems to have found its way into every weeknight dinner recipe, but he suggests one that’s a winner—Molly Baz’s One-Pan Chicken Thighs With Burst Tomatoes, Harissa, and Feta.

Claire’s prized, beloved cat Felix provides moral support as the hosts dive into Maya’s conundrum. Listen now to get inspiration from Chris, Claire, and Maya to build your go-to dinner framework.
