Entrees Recipes by AE Dairy

Beef Stroganoff Lite
This hearty entree gets a makeover with AE Fat Free Sour Cream.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken
Buttermilk is a natural meat tenderizer, and this classic favorite includes marinating time as well as drying time to set the coating. The result is a perfect blend of moist, flavorful chicken in a light, crisp cover.
Chicken 'n Cheese Enchiladas
Swap AE Cottage Cheese for some of the hard, full fat cheese in these enchiladas for a boost of protein and added creaminess.
Chicken Pot Pie with Buttermilk Biscuits
Comfort food to feed a crowd starts with a rotisserie chicken in a milky gravy that’s topped with the golden flakiness of buttermilk biscuits.
Creamy Ranch Chicken
AE Whole Milk Yogurt adds delicious creaminess to the southwest flavors of this crock pot entree.
Garden Quiche with Candied Tomato Salsa
Creamy AE Cottage Cheese adds protein to this vegetable-packed quiche. We like using shiitake mushrooms best because they don’t give off as much moisture as button mushrooms. If using button mushrooms, be sure to sauté them thoroughly so the quiche isn’t runny. The fresh flavor of the tomato salsa is a must-have!
Gingered Pork Chops
AE Orange Juice makes this a simply sauced and company-worthy entree.
Grandma Erickson's Mac 'n Cheese
Here it is, the Erickson family version of a comfort food classic! Served with a crisp green salad on the side, it’s a meal in itself.
Lazy Day Lasagna
We thought about giving this a new name because simple and tasty shouldn't be confused with lazy. AE Cottage Cheese boosts flavor, creaminess and protein in this classic Italian dish.
Lite Chicken Alfredo
AE Milk and Cottage Cheese partner in this makeover.
Mandarin Chicken Stir Fry
Citrus and soy combine to make a meal in minutes.
Mr. E’s Manicotti
Mr. E’s Garden Veggie Cottage Cheese adds a flavorful touch to this savory stuffed manicotti. Because the dish is assembled a day before baking, it’s ideal for busy schedules, but is also special enough to “wow” guests.
Pasta Primavera
AE Milk adds flavor and creaminess to this satisfying pasta side. We love the versatility of adding in-season veggies to customize to your liking. Miriam serves it alongside roast beef or pork, but it also makes a satisfying meatless entrée when served with a salad.
Shepherd’s Pie
Classic comfort food, this shepherd’s pie has all the hearty goodness you remember from your childhood, but even better with AE real sour cream dip. Use ground turkey or a frozen veggie combo of your choice to put your own signature spin on the dish.
Tandoori Drumsticks
Unsweetened Whole Milk Yogurt, fresh lemon and spices combine to make a zesty marinade for this Mediterranean inspired main dish.
Traditional Meatloaf
A homestyle classic made with the goodness of AE Milk. Serve this perennial favorite with our recipe for Twice Baked Potatoes or Mashed Cauliflower with Sour Cream. Delicious!
Vegetable and Black Bean Quesadillas
A touch of AE Hot Jalapeño Mexican Style Dip gives these cheesy vegetable quesadillas a spicy kick that sets them apart from the rest. Play around with the vegetables according to what’s on hand—try sliced mushrooms or diced zucchini!
