Food Classic: You can’t beat a delicious Chicken Francese when it comes to comfort Italian.
Inspiration: The Le Creuset challenge begins. I LOVE Le Creuset, and I’m lucky to have a lot of pieces, ranging from Roasters, to Grill Pans, to a Gravy Boat. David (my husband) challenged me to use EVERY single Le Creuset item I own, for it’s exact purpose, but then end of the year. So when coming up with a dish, I wanted to make use of a few Le Creuset items, plus I had 6 eggs, chicken and parsley that needed to be cooked.
Adaptation: I found this great recipe for Lightened Chicken Francese on SkinnyTaste. It’s delicious and easy to make. You still get the great Francese lemony taste but without all the butter & fat.
PREP & COOKING TIPS
This dish requires both Pan-Searing Chicken & Making a Sauce, I used my Le Creuset Flame Orange 5 Qt Braiser. I like that its deep enough to hold a sauce.
It’s important to cook the chicken in batches so they cook evenly and don’t burn
Don’t worry that it cools. You will re-add the chicken to the sauce to finish cooking
I served the chicken Family Style on my Le Creuset Marseille Blue Large Serving Platter. Then put my extra sauce in my Le Creuset Cherry Red Gravy Boat, knocking out 3 items for 1 dish!
