Nothing satisfies quite like chicken, ours made even juicier and more flavorful by stuffing a dab of homemade tarragon butter under the skin. For the spring side dish, we dreamed up an asparagus-sweet pea gratin that is hearty enough to be a vegetarian meal on its own, but pairs perfectly with the flavors of the chicken.
The salty crunch of flash-sauteed kale would be a knock-out with just about anything, but when the leafy greens are tossed with ribbons of silky pasta and spicy, ground chicken, you have a quick and easy dish that’s perfect for Tuesday night “in.” It’s also packed with Vitamins A, C, K and cancer-fighting anti-oxidants!
Cod gets really interesting with the fun, unexpected addition of sauteed cucumbers- kind of like warm pickles (but in a good way!) Roasted eggplant— both smoky and sweet— mixes with Thai basil and chili-spiced cherry tomatoes for a light, delicious sauce that will beat out your corner Thai joint any time.
James couldn’t help himself- he had to share his “last supper” meal with you. Chances are, it’ll become yours when you soak your pork (and a hunk of crusty baguette) in the silky, bourbon sauce. That flavor you can’t put your finger on? A touch of cumin.
We call this a “please your man meal”—even though Brooke loves it just as much as Jamie. Pour yourself a glass of Malbec while the skirt steak sizzles and the oven fries roast. Set out little bowls for the salsa verde and smoked Spanish paprika garlic aioli and you’ve got the perfect dinner.
