Fall Recipes to Try This Season

The crisp fall weather has arrived! If you’re looking forward to comforting, fall-inspired dinners, you may be on the search for new recipes to try this season. Here, we share a few of our favorite options to keep you warm during those chilly autumn evenings.

Bacon Harvest Chicken Skillet

Looking for a one-pan meal with easy prep? This bacon harvest chicken skillet recipe is bursting with fall flavors and is a great option for a quick and nutritious dinner. To prepare this meal, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and pat six chicken thighs dry with a paper towel. Set aside on a sheet tray. Then, toast ½ cup of whole pecans in a cast iron skillet over medium heat for about two minutes before removing the pecans and allowing to cool. After roughly chopping the toasted pecans, return the burner to low heat and add four slices of thick-cut hardwood-smoked bacon (cut into ½” pieces) and cook until bacon is crispy. Transfer the cooked bacon to a paper towel, leaving the fat in the skillet. With the burner on medium-high heat, season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper before adding to the skillet, skin side down. Cook until the skin is golden and crispy, then transfer the chicken to a clean plate. Drain the fat from the skillet, leaving one tablespoon for cooking Brussels sprouts, fennel, onions, and thyme over medium-high heat. When the vegetables soften, add three cloves of chopped garlic and continue cooking until veggies are slightly golden. Pour in half a cup of white wine and turn the burner to high heat and simmer until two tablespoons of liquid remain. Next, add one cup of chicken broth, stir the mixture, and place chicken thighs back into the skillet. Bring to a boil and transfer to the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Finally, transfer the vegetables to a platter or baking dish, top with chicken thighs, and sprinkle with the toasted pecans and bacon. If desired, squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the dish.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Soup is the ultimate fall comfort food, and this roasted butternut squash recipe is perfect as a vegetarian-friendly, low-maintenance meal. Begin by roasting the cubes of one peeled, whole butternut squash and two peeled, cubed potatoes tossed in olive oil at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a large pot over medium heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil. Next, sauté an onion, a large carrot, and one stalk of celery over medium-high heat until softened. Season with salt, pepper, and thyme. Place the roasted squash and potatoes in the pot and cover with a quart of chicken broth. After simmering for 10 minutes, blend with an immersion blender until smooth and creamy.

Maple Rosemary Pork Tenderloin

Maple is a classic fall flavor that pairs beautifully with pork tenderloin and roasted potatoes. To prepare this delicious recipe, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and season the tenderloin with salt and pepper on both sides. Drizzle quartered baby potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and top with the pork. In a small mixing bowl, combine olive oil, maple syrup, mustard, red pepper flakes, and rosemary. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then brush the tenderloin with the mixture. Roast for one hour, until the internal temperature of the tenderloin reaches 145 degrees and garnish with rosemary.
