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. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)

You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
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 sirloin steaks, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 2 and 4, seasoning steak with a pinch of salt and pepper. Sear undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes, then transfer to empty half of baking sheet and roast until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes.
Start Potatoes and Cook Bacon
Bring a medium pot with potatoes covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 15-18 minutes.
When potatoes are fork-tender, reserve 1 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.
While potatoes cook, place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and line a plate with paper towels. Add bacon to hot pan and stir occasionally until crispy, 4-5 minutes.
Remove from burner. Transfer bacon to a towel-lined plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
After bacon cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ½" slices on an angle.
Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball).
Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of pepper.
Finish the Potatoes
Add bacon, cream cheese, butter, cheddar cheese, 2 Tbsp. reserved potato cooking water, and a pinch of salt and pepper to pot with potatoes. Mash until slightly chunky. If mixture is too dry, add remaining potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Cover and set aside.
Roast the Vegetables and Chicken
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 of baking sheet and roast in hot oven until starting to brown, 5-7 minutes.
While vegetables roast, return pan used to cook bacon to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until browned on one side, 4-5 minutes.
Transfer chicken, seared side up, to empty half of baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Gently flip vegetables. Roast until vegetables are tender and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes.
While chicken and vegetables roast, make sauce.
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.
