First up we have delicious Thai Lettuce Wraps with Ginger Lime Satay from Kristen at The Endless Meal.
And because I love Thai food we have some lovely Thai Spring Rolls from Compass And Fork.
Crisp Honey Shrimp with Candied Walnuts is definitely a favored recipe for the Chinese New Year table. We have 4 Sons ‘R’ Us to thank for this yumminess.
Noshtastic offers the next beautiful dish. Here we have a gluten-free version of P.F. Chang’s Beef a La Sichuan recipe.
This Soy Ginger Lemon Chicken from Sugar and Soul is another great option for your Chinese New Year menu.
Spicy Cashew Chicken is offered from The View from Great Island as another option for your Chinese Feast. I actually substituted tofu for this one. 😉
Fried Rice, anyone? If you are going to have it then it should be a good one! Try out this Crab Fried Rice from Siam Sunset Restaurant. Thank you PKP Way.
Here I get more decadent and offer a link to the amazing Maggie over at Omnivore’s Cookbook. You simply must visit her site and see all of the delights but pick just ONE cookie (if you can) to round out this Asian feast. I am in for the Quinoa Sesame Brittle.
For sure Chinese New Year is not about small dainty meals. The food is plentiful and some foods hit on the really healthy part of the spectrum and some are far on the other side. choose wisely and remember, if it is not delicious then do not eat it! I am in for the Quinoa Sesame Brittle.

Hi Elise. I am so bookmarking this page. My husband and I eat a lot of Chinese food, and it’s his favorite. These recipes look delicious. Thanks for sharing.
All the best,
I am so pleased to hear the excitement in what you have just shared. Thank you so much.
It’s not so much about what I like, Elise, it’s what the fussy eaters in the family will eat. I’ll have to make changes to some of them 🙂
Ah yes… I can understand that. It is something that I am often working through with families. I have no doubt that you can effect those changes but do let me know if you need any help.
Awesome recipes! Will definately have to try 🙂 Love chinese!
I do too 🙂 Do let me know which is your favorite.
These all look delicious, We were getting a bit lazy with cooking and using too much frozen stir fry veg and ready made sauces. I grew tired of the same old thing so I’ve been looking for new ideas. I love Chinese food too. Thanks Elise.
I love that this is coming to you with perfect timing. That is fabulous and I am very interested to hear about what you like best.
I’m not sure which one I will try first. It will probably be between the Beef a la Sichuan or the Soy Ginger Lemon Chicken. Either way, I am excited to try all of these. Thank you for sharing.
You are so welcome. I am excited to hear of your results.
