Most Popular Recipes of the Year

I can’t believe it is FINALLY 2021. YAY!!! 2020 was a unique year, to say the least. BUT 2020 wasn’t all bad. I shared over 200 new recipes last year. That is a lot of yummy food! Today I am sharing the most popular recipes of 2020. SO many yummy recipes!

Almost half of the list is made up of Crack recipes. What does Crack mean? If a recipe has crack in the title it means that it has cheddar, bacon, and ranch in the recipe. It all started with my Crack Dip way back in 2007. I made the dip for a Titans football game. Everyone went crazy over it. We couldn’t stop eating it and said it was like crack. The name stuck. The flavor combination is totally addicting.

I’m busy working on 2021 recipes right now. It is already shaping up to be another delicious year!

This list is a great place to start if you are new to Plain Chicken. Heck, even if you aren’t new you might find a few new favorites. Make sure to pin this post to reference for later!

Keep reading to see the best of the best from 2020! Did your favorite recipe make the list? If not, what was it?!?!? Leave me a comment with your favorite recipe or what you want to see in 2021.

  1. We tried a lot of these delicious recipes in 2020. They were all just too good. Especially loved the Crack Keto Biscuits and our top favorite was the 3 Ingredient Brown Sugar Italian Chicken. In fact several years ago your 3 Ingredient Chicken recipe was how I got my “chicken hating” hubby to finally eat and really like chicken! I fix this recipe at least once a week for us and I don’t know how many times I have shared it with others and they all have loved it for its simplicity and great taste!
    Thanks so much Stephanie for all the hard work you do and for sharing your good recipes. Your blog is my very favorite recipe blog and I can always find something good to try. Oh yes, I love reading the Meow Monday blog and seeing the cute kitties. They are the bright spot in my week.
    Looking forward to the recipes (and kitty pictures) you will post in 2021!
