provencal chicken, my way



(Katie is spending Easter weekend at her dad's and got her hair cut on Saturday)

*ring-ring

"Hello?"

"Hey Mom. Happy Easter." She didn't sound so happy.

"Hey Katie. Happy Easter to you too."

"Mom, I look like Liza Minnelli." Mind you, this is said like her best friend just died. Kind of a breathy whisper like she is in shock and can't wrap her mind around this devastating circumstance that could only happen in ones dreams.

"Young Liza or Old Liza?"

"Young Liza."

"That's not so bad."

"It's really short, like, Catherine Zeta Jones in Chicago short."

"Oh... that is short. Do you like it?"

"I have to get used to it."

"So are you calling me to warn me?"

"Pretty much."

I think Katie was going for Audrey and ended up with Liza. I haven't seen it yet so who knows, either way she is an icon for someone..


My daughter, gay icon at age 16. That does not make me Judy because I can't sing a note to save my life.



I got my inspiration for this dish from this recipe in Gourmet.



ECM's Provencal Chicken

serves 4

6 chicken thighs
4-6 tablespoons of olive oil
6 potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1/4 slices
1 container of grape tomatoes, sliced in half
5 oz. or 1/2 a 10 oz. jar of kalamata olives
2 oz. or 1/2 a 4 oz. jar of capers
fresh rosemary
salt and pepper to taste

Place a large enough baking dish to fit potatoes and chicken thighs in an oven and pre heat oven to 450. Toss chicken with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place coated chicken, skin side down to one side of hot baking dish. Toss potatoes with remaining olive oil, salt, and pepper. and spread on the empty half of baking dish. It's okay if they bunch up. Roast chicken for 20 minutes the turn chicken over skin side up. Add olives, capers, tomatoes, and rosemary over chicken. Roast chicken for 30 minutes or until done.

Tasting Notes: I love the flavor/texture combinations in this dish. Crispy skin from the chicken. Sweet from the roasted grape tomatoes. Briny from the capers. Salty from the olives. The sharp rosemary taste. It's like a party for your tongue. Then the potatoes, oh lord the potatoes... They crisp up but are a little soggy from the roasted chicken juices, then you can taste the salt, sweet, brine from the olive, tomato, and capers which make the potatoes so sweet tasting. Every flavor stands out but also comes together beautifully.

Your first comment is coming through to me in what looks like Korean glyphs.

As long as she didn't end up with the Demi Moore or Sigourny Weaver look. Although I've a friend who just went with those looks for St. Baldrick's Day.

The chicken dish looks and sounds wonderful. I will have to give it a try! Capers and kalamata olives are two of my favorite salty flavors.

Poulsbo said...

Wow, yeah - look what Ed said! :) I guess the good thing about hair is it grows... but man, 16 is a hard age... I bet it's cute... change can be tough at first :)

Long hair, short hair, no hair . . . that girl is beautiful and her smile is mesmerizing.

I'm definitely making this chicken. Looks so easy with a big payoff, which is just how I like my recipes.

asthmagirl said...

Ed gets around! The chicken looks yummy (minus the deadly tomatoes) and what is it with capers... I love them!

Tell your young beauty that it will get better! I deeply miss my hair too and I was no where close to a Liza or an Audry or anyone lovely!

MrOrph said...

Um yeah, what's ed REALLY trying to say?

Great looking chicken dish.

So what's the verdict on the hair? Remember that stuff grows back.

Zesty Cook said...

this chicken dish looks amazing! Thanks so much for sharing

The Yummy Mummy said...

God, Katie is a gorgeous creature! Hair, shmair, she'll still be drop-dead.

And that chicken ain't too shabby either, sister!

noble pig said...

I think Ed likes the recipe...or maybe he doesn't...we'll never know!

I think it's superb looking!

SaintTigerlily said...

Oof, I have so been there. With the hair. And the traumatic short cut. After which I still have not allowed anyone to cut more than a few inches and only in extreme circumstances and now only in my own home. Poor kid.

Grace said...

you had me at "crispy skin." :)

Daniel said...

I completely agree with you on the complimentary mix of textures and flavors. Isn't that the best thing about cooking at home?

Happy you had such a success with this dish.
