This chicken recipe has been in the Bijouxs Little Jewels Collection since 1986 when first published in W Magazine, the fashion & design mag of the day. Grab this NYC little jewel.
This chicken is a classic bistro recipe lightly adapted from Quatorze French Bistro in NYC, still going strong since 1984! Although there has been a location change since this intimate French bistro opened, the love remains.
This recipe is a nod to Traditional Bistro cuisine, simple in style. After removing the back bone allowing the chicken to lay flat, I left the chicken untrussed, allowing it to roast with a true rustic style. The star of the recipe to me is the dense combination of fresh and dried herbs for the long marinade, adding so much flavor.
More Pixie Tangerine love here at Bijouxs. I created a take on a recipe from the amazing Jerusalem Cookbook and cooked up with Chicken Roasted with Pixie Tangerines, Fennel & Pernod. Not your plain-old roast chicken here in the Bijouxs Kitchen.
As is many times the case, most recipes make enough to serve a big family, however in the real world, most nights many of us are cooking for just one or two people. Many recipes can be adjusted to smaller batch cooking-this chicken recipe reworked simply for 2 servings.
FENNEL & PERNOD
One of the major flavor notes in this dish is anise, from both the fennel seeds and the intense Pernod liquor. Sautéed Artichokes with Pernod from the blog is a nice way to introduce the liquor to your taste buds.
The sweetness of the tangerines, both juice and the fruit, are perfect counter play against to saltiness of the chicken. The fennel takes on a slightly sweet glaze cooking in the pan along with the Pixies and marinade. Just add some steamed Basmati rice to soak up the wonderful marinade-dinner is served.
Sweet holidays from Bijouxs Little Jewels in the Kitchen.
Disclosure: Melissa’s Produce sent the Ojai Pixie tangerines for recipe development.
As a new Mom there are so many things to take care of and New Mom’s Nourishing Soup is one I have embraced ever since my son was born-a true little jewel from my kitchen. Continue reading New Mom’s Nourishing Soup
This recipe is a take on my Mom’s total comfort dish of Pork Chops and Rice. We have not been eating as much pork, instead turning to chicken. Drumsticks are down home, kid friendly and also budget conscious. My son once had me step outside the kitchen to surprise me with some chicken and rice, of course sans the wine. The red wine and garlic are newer adult additions to the family recipe. The basics are always a little jewel. Continue reading Skillet Chicken & Rice
