When it comes to easy and familiar, roast chicken is an appealing choice as well. Roasting the whole chicken in herbs and butter creates a golden-brown delight that will look wonderful on your Christmas table.
Add in a few vegetables, like carrots and potatoes, and you have an easy, complete, and festive holiday dinner. Of course, you can dress it up with extra sides, or even bake it in a crust, but a delicious Christmas alternative to turkey is available with just a little salt, pepper, and butter. You can’t go wrong.
A favourite of pescatarians everywhere, countless salmon recipes can serve as an unforgettable main dish for your holiday gathering.
With just one main ingredient and a few spices, this dish can also be a bargain, depending on where you buy the salmon and what type you select.
Ham is just about as popular as turkey when it comes to a festive holiday meal. And with good reason. It is easy to glaze, feeds a crowd, and many hams just need to be heated through, so you do not have to worry about undercooked meat.
Look for a high-quality ham and a simple glaze for an easy and delicious Christmas alternative.
