Chicken Parmesan is a tradition in our family for Valentine’s Day. We always make extra so that we can make chicken Parmesan sandwiches the next day. This fatty dish can be very heavy for Valentine’s, so this lower fat version is a winner.

Lobster is a traditional Valentine’s Day dinner. It can be messy and time consuming to break down a whole lobster, and then you smell like seafood for the night. A good option is just cooking the lobster tails. Mix it up with this delicious ginger sauce.

The porterhouse steak cut is a great alternative to splurging on tenderloin. You still get a large portion of the tender meat, but you also get a whole New York strip steak. It’s a good size for two people, so you need only buy one steak for dinner.
Mussels are a great protein for Valentine’s Day. Buy them right before using, or else you might find they have died in your fridge. They should be very affordable, but some inland cities have a markup on their shipping costs. This coconut sauce gives a unique touch to this dish.

This magnificent one dish dinner is a real winner. Game hens are cooked with potatoes and Brussels sprouts. Bacon is added to the pan first, seasoning the dish and adding a delicious flavor to the meal. You can use any tiny poultry bird, or break down a conventional chicken into smaller parts.
