i watched a few chefs cook on the and really enjoyed it. i learned how to make wolfgang puck’s crispy chicken with mustard sauce and it was SO good. i always feel like i don’t know how to make chicken not taste boring or dry but this one was perfectly crispy on the outside and so juicy on the inside.

in the spirit of , we decided to go purple wild and pair it with purple cauliflower, onions and radish. a gorgeous and easy weeknight meal! let’s make it… -bri

my latest obsession is . white enamel on the inside and very pleasing on the eyes. is perfect for so many dishes and is good looking enough to sit out on your oven at all times.

and you can use for baked eggs (try this recipe!), desserts, or to hold salt or spices on your countertop.

for the chicken, we followed by wolfgang almost down to the tee with a few important notes:

1. it might be hard for your to find a butterflied chicken, but you can go to a market that has a good butcher counter (we went to Whole Foods), and ask them to butterfly a whole one for you. the smallest chicken we could find was 5lbs so our cooking time went longer than he says, about 25 minutes.

2. make sure to pat your chicken completely dry and then generously salt and pepper each side before placing it in the pan.

3. pay less attention to the cooking times noted and more about the notes on how it should look, i.e. make sure the chicken skin is really crispy, that could be less than 5 minutes or more than 7 depending on the size.

4. when you put the pan in the oven to cook make sure it is skin side down! it will have been skin side up and you’ll want to flip it back over before putting it in the oven. also, we used rosemary instead of tarragon and it worked great. you could also use thyme instead as well.

we prepared the cauliflower and red onion really simply with a light drizzle of olive oil and a generous sprinkle of salt, roasted at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. it’s nice to have the flavor on the plain side because the chicken packs a punch and you won’t want anything competing with that. we also served mashed sweet potatoes along side, for those we peeled and cubes the potatoes and placed them in boiling water until tender. we then drained them and mixed with butter, cream and salt and beat until soft and creamy!

we plated the chicken directly on top of the veggies and in the same pan we cooked them in. cuts down on dishes and the purple Le Creuset looks great for presentation!
