9 Savory Autumn Main Dishes


Autumn is just one of those seasons that involves special foods and dishes that we don’t necessarily enjoy other times of the year. And you know we could never just pass up the opportunity for a culinary celebration of all the fall foods! Two weeks ago we shared 17 Autumn Desserts that are sure to delight, and last week it was 14 Flavorful Fall Sides. As much as we might like to just have sides and desserts, main dishes are pretty important when it comes to dinner, so today we give you 9 Savory Autumn Main Dishes.

Chicken and Poultry for Fall

You’ll never believe how easy it is to make Homemade Chicken and Dumplings! And by homemade, we mean not refrigerated biscuit dough or cut up tortillas, we’re talking from scratch, rolled out dumpling dough. Way easier than you might think and so delicious that it’s one of the most popular recipes ever at Eat at Home.

This Turkey Sheet Pan Dinner was inspired by Aimee’s recipe at Simple Bites, and Oh My Word it was amazing! Even the second and third times that we all went back for more!

Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Chicken and Sweet Potatoes is so delicious that even your “I don’t do sweet potatoes” people will be impressed. And if for some reason, you don’t feel that adventurous, substitute carrots or add apples or more brown sugar. It’s practically impossible to mess this one up!

Just look at all the sweet maple syrup flavor in this Maple Balsamic Roast Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner! And it’s a sheet pan dinner which means quick prep and the simplest clean-up ever. You’re welcome!

Harvest Apple Salad with Parmesan Pepper Chicken and Caramel Apple Cider Float is a perfect light meal with slices of chicken that boasts a  sweet crunchy outside and juicy moist inside. And with all the calories you save on a salad, you can also say yes to a Caramel Apple Cider Float.


Fall Pork Recipes – the Other White Meat

If you enjoy the flavor of barbecue, and who doesn’t, try this fall version of Apple BBQ Pork Chops. It delivers a sweet smoky flavor that’s hard to beat!

Honey Dijon Pork Chops and Apples make good use of one of every cooks favorite appliances, the slow cooker. Just toss a handful of fall goodness into the slow cooker in the morning, add a side dish or two, and your fall feast is served!

This Pork Chop & Apples Sheet Pan Dinner is just as delicious as it is pretty. And you can use it as an opportunity to introduce the kids to Peter Brady and his “Pork Chops and Applesauce” scene from the Brady Bunch. There’s a fun dinner conversation starter!

Pork and apples just go together like cookies and milk! Keilbasa with Potato Apple Slaw is a tasty dinner combo that cooks in your slow cooker while you’re off enjoying everything that fall has to offer.

Pork Chops and Root Veggies with Cranberries Sheet Pan Dinner is another culinary masterpiece that combines the best of fall flavors in an easy and satisfying meal. And now you’re hungry!

Which of the 9 Savory Autumn Main Dishes will you choose first?

Granted, these recipes call for chicken and pork, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t be adventurous and switch things up with some beef or other meats here and there. Whatever meat you choose to go with, be sure to save room for those flavorful fall sides and delicious desserts!

And here’s a fun thing to do – which of the main dishes, fall sides and desserts would you use from our Fall Series to create a classic autumn dinner menu?
