When it comes to Ina Garten’s repertoire of go-to dinner recipes, her perfect roast chicken (the culinary maven’s signature dish), will always be number one—in her kitchen and ours. And with good reason. Garten’s magical chicken dinner even had a hand in Prince Harry’s proposal to Meghan Markle!

But, try as we might, we can’t cook and eat a roast chicken every night. So, when Garten recently shared her second-favorite dinner on social media, you better believe we took note. (Hopefully Markle did too!)

Apparently, her Parmesan Chicken also enjoys a recurring role on the Garten dinner table, and we can certainly see why!

“If I had to choose my all-time go-to dinner (besides roast chicken!!) it would definitely be my Parmesan Chicken!” Garten revealed via her social media platforms on Thursday. “It’s a whole dinner on one plate—juicy, herb-breaded chicken with a cold lemony salad and shaved Parmesan on top. And the whole thing takes 30 minutes to prepare! How great is that?!”

The recipe, which you can find on her website here, was originally featured in her 2002 cookbook Barefoot Contessa Family Style. It requires chicken breasts, salad greens and a healthy portion of Garten’s favorite cheese: Parmesan.
