Post Holiday … Easy Elegant Dinner

DSC01111

One holiday party and two holiday dinners later … did I remember to take a single picture? Nope!  So no holiday postings for me.  I guess I took a page from Sue’s book and decided to have a good time instead!!!

Saturday after Christmas, I’m craving something a little elegant (but easy).  Where do I turn?  To the French of course who, clearly, epitomize easy elegance.  Click on the link that follows for the Roasted Chicken Provençal recipe and enjoy your own stress free post holiday evening: Easy Elegant Dinner .

I served this with a baguette, a light salad of baby greens dressed with white balsamic vinaigrette and Kermit Lynch Côtes du Rhône.

Divas dish on Mimi’s dish.  I made a few minor adjustments to this recipe.  I used 1/2 cup of vermouth because 1/3 cup did not look like enough in the pan.  During the second 1/2 hour of baking, I switched the oven to convection roast to brown the chicken.  If you don’t have a convection oven, you may need to place the pan under the broiler to get a nice crisp golden brown skin.  Sue:  HA!!! I love that Mimi  got so caught up in her celebrations that she forgot to take pictures … what a break through!  I’m always cooking for a crowd so this recipe looks like it’s right up my alley.  I’m definitely going to try it and maybe I’ll remember to take a picture to post with Mimi’s.  I hope so!
