Non Traditional Thanksgiving Recipes

If you’re anything like me, you love Thanksgiving for getting to spend time at home with family and friends, but not such a big fan of the turkey, gravy, and stuffing that’s typical at most Thanksgiving dinners.

2. Baked Sweet and Spicy Chicken

This baked chicken breast tastes just like the sweet and sour chicken you get at a Chinese restaurant, but healthier for you since it's not fried. With honey, hot sauce, and sesame seeds it is the perfect balance of spicy and sweet flavors.
