50 delicious Chinese recipes

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, global cooking trends were showing an uptick in people cooking at home. Gallup and Cookpad’s latest report published Dec. 17, 2020, showed that through 2019, a growing number of people around the world were cooking at home rather than going out or eating pre-cooked meals.

In the U.S., the swelling popularity of at-home meal prep subscriptions from Blue Apron to Hello Fresh! and the growing prevalence of grocery delivery underscore a renewed interest in prepping meals at home. Then as COVID-19 spread, mandatory restaurant shutdowns and capacity limits drove a dramatic jump in home cooking—not to mention demand for recipes and sales of things like yeast and kitchen appliances.

Chinese food is among the most popular cuisines in the U.S., with around 45,000 Chinese restaurants in 2019, more than the combined total of several of the most popular fast-food chains. Many popular staples at Chinese restaurants can be recreated at home—to that end, Stacker compiled a list of Chinese recipes from Allrecipes. Keep reading to see if any of your favorites made the list.
