I butterflied (split open) the chicken down the middle

Once I coated the pan with olive oil, I golden the salted and peppered chicken on both sides

I reserve the chicken on a plate before sautéing 3 slices of bacon, 1 small onion, 1 carrot, 1 small turnip, 4 green onions, 1 russet potato. The choice of vegetables was instructed by I had in my fridge. Really other things can be added like olives, celery, parsnip…even cabbage. Add one glass of white wine.

and goes into a preheated over (350º). I have a very convenient pan, I can remove the handle (merci Joseph & Yoori!)

Covered with the lid and I let it be for 20/25 minutes

I removed the lid and let the skin brown (in the oven) for a few minutes

Voilà! Mon Petit Poulet aux Légumes is ready.
I fed myself two delicious dinners.
The second day even better than the first. The potatoes have come a little apart and thicken the sauce.

  1. After reading and seeing your cooking Nicole and eating the treats sister Kate drops off, this walk looks like a lovely and good idea. Maybe when I’m down there in a couple of weeks I’ll take it but I better get started up here.
    I like your style on your blog Nicole. Many kudos to you.
    enjoy all that you can,
    Love ya,
    Annine
