While what I am eating today is simply breaded and fried in olive oil chicken breast, the rest of the bird was stewed with great success. Just a simple recipe that relied on leeks, potatoes, and herbs, but one that was brilliantly successful, due in no small part to the careful selection of potatoes from those on offer locally, including Kennebec, Cicero, Desiree, and Marfona, which is another indictment of industrial farming and a completely different story.
The simple story here is that good chicken can be great, even fabulous. Special enough to serve to guests as part of a significant and fancy feast! Imagine a five course meal based only on chicken. My mouth is watering at the mere suggestions of such, and while I would only embark on such an endeavor with my locally sourced, happy life chickens, I will admit that with recipes as good as these, you'll probably be thrilled with the results even if your chickens are of the supermarket variety!
