Retro Recipes: 1980s

Dear Retro Chef,

Who could forget neon clothes, the Brat Pack, or those early days of MTV? Well, it’s time to put down the Rubik’s Cube and head back to the future – or at least back to the kitchen, where we’ll take a culinary trip to the 1980s.

Starting with a delicious, and easy, Spinach Dip, these dishes are so memorable, you’ll want to phone home. Then our Pasta Salad recipe pays homage to the wildly colorful decade with an array of colors sure to brighten even the drabbest day. And you can’t talk about the ‘80s without mentioning after-school snacks, which is where these Pesto Pinwheels come in. They’re the perfect no-bake solution anytime you need to feed your Gremlins (as long as you don’t feed them after midnight).

For dinner, the Blackened Chicken is the thing sweet dreams are made of. Make a large portion of your seasoning blend and store the extra for pork, seafood, or roasted veggies.

Save room for dessert! These Butterscotch Blondies will take your breath away. And when you see how easy they are, you’ll be walking on sunshine!

So let’s dance into the kitchen and get cookin’! The Retro Recipes: 1980s episode is a blast from the past that’s just as tasty today as it was in 1982. Get five complete, easy-to-follow recipes along with a full-color digital cookbook that includes high-quality photos of each dish, so you know just what to expect. Plus, get plenty of my tips and tricks to help you work like a pro in your home kitchen. And that all comes with instant access to a growing library of cooking TV shows, magazine issues, and cookbooks when you join me, Chef Addie Gundry, for RecipeLion’s Retro Recipes: 1980s TV show.

Retro Recipes: 1980s

One of my favorite ‘80s recipes is Blackened Chicken, in part because the seasoning is so versatile. In addition to chicken, the seasoning you make for this works on so many other dishes—everything from steak to grilled vegetables to fish. Plus, you can make it as hot (or not) as you like, since you’re in control of the recipe. And there’s nothing like cooking in a cast iron skillet.

Your first step is to make the seasoning. Simply combine your smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, oregano, and cayenne in a small bowl and blend well. Once your mix is ready, coat your chicken with it and cook in a hot skillet for about five minutes on each side.

That’s it! You now have blackened chicken ready to serve. Slice it to put in a salad, or enjoy it as it is.

The rad dishes in Retro Recipes: 1980s will have you dancing on the ceiling. Along with the recipe for Blackened Chicken, you’ll get the recipes for:

  • Spinach Dip—This is pure ‘80s and oh so good! Mayo, chopped spinach, and sour cream are just the beginning of this crowd favorite. If you really want to make a splash, hollow out a small loaf of bread and serve it from that! Wow!
  • Colorful Pasta Salad—This is an easy, go-to appetizer for entertaining or whenever you need a quick meal. Fresh mozzarella adds a bit of flair to this fun dish. Cheesy, delicious, and healthy! It’s everything you could ask for in a recipe!

Your Retro Recipes: 1980s TV show isn’t over yet. There are still two more delicious recipes that highlight the best of the decade.

  • Pesto Pinwheels—This after-school snack is most excellent! It’s just the thing when your kids bring home an unexpected parade of hungry friends. In about five minutes, they can be munching away, happy as could be.
  • Butterscotch Blondies—Yum! You don’t have to save these for dessert if you don’t want to. I know I have a hard time waiting to taste these scrumptious treats.

And don’t forget, every episode comes with an accompanying digital cookbook, all the show’s recipes and instructions in written form, and full-color pictures of each dish—read it all on any device or print it out for easy use in your own kitchen.
