A note about serious food allergies

You can be rich as Croesus, and still not eat a meal as divinely delicious and, well, rich as this. Not only do the mashed potatoes get some extra gooey goodness with cheese, but… there's bacon. You read that right. And now that your attention is rapt, this meal also contains a garlic demi that enrobes the chicken with deep flavor that's just… rich. That old Croesus may have been Mr. Moneybags (he did invent the gold coin), but he never ate so well.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using filets mignon, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 2 and 4, searing undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes on one side, then roasting until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 12-14 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start Potatoes and Cook Bacon

    Quarter potatoes.

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 15-18 minutes.

    Reserve 1 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.

    While potatoes boil, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add bacon to hot, dry pan and stir occasionally until crispy, 4-5 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer bacon to a towel-lined plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball).

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into 1/4" slices on an angle.

    Mince garlic.

    Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Finish Potatoes and Start Vegetables

    Add bacon, softened cream cheese, butter, shredded cheese, 2 Tbsp. reserved potato cooking water, and a pinch of salt and pepper to pot with potatoes. Mash until slightly chunky. If too dry, add remaining potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside.

    Place carrot and Brussels sprouts on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread into a single layer on one half and roast in hot oven until starting to brown 7-9 minutes.

    While vegetables roast, sear chicken.

  4. 4

    Finish Vegetables and Cook Chicken

    Return pan used to cook bacon to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan. Cook until browned, 4-5 minutes on one side.

    Carefully remove baking sheet from oven and gently flip vegetables. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Transfer chicken, seared side up, to empty half of baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Roast again until vegetables are tender and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes.

    While chicken and vegetables roast, make sauce.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil and garlic to hot pan. Stir constantly until fragrant, 30-60 seconds.

    Add demi-glace and 2 Tbsp. water. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. If desired, strain sauce through a wire-mesh strainer.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chicken with sauce. Bon appétit!
