1993: Roasted Chicken and Vegetables
1992: Soupe A L’Oignon (French Onion Soup)

1993: A meal for two that utilizes the cooktop for browning and the oven for roasting all in one skillet. Sage, rosemary, paprika, and pepper, when added with olives, fennel bulb, shallots, and red pepper make a harmonious combination of seasonings that elevate chicken and potatoes. When you add the vegetables to the skillet it sizzles and loosens the browned bits spreading the yummy concentrated flavor. The combination isn’t common, but it’s easy, delicious, and a definite repeater.
