A note about serious food allergies

The aromas from your kitchen let you know something special is coming when you pull these dauphinoise potatoes from your oven. Here's a hint: thinly sliced potatoes, cooked in cream redolent of shallot and fresh chives, with a golden-brown crust of Parmesan cheese. They make a very strong case for being this dish's main attraction, but they're competing with carrots glazed in brown sugar, and a juicy chicken breast with shallot gravy. Tough call, but there's no debating that you're the winner. Tip: This recipe has a shallot, which sometimes is rough to mince. Easiest way to mince shallot? Make thin slices lengthwise, then slices across, resulting in minced shallot.

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Slice potatoes into thin rounds. Bring a medium pot with potatoes and enough lightly salted water to cover to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until softened, 10-12 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander. Return to pot, cover, and set aside. While potatoes cook, peel and mince shallot. Peel, trim, and cut carrot on an angle into ¼" slices. Mince chives. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. If using boneless skinless chicken breasts, bone-in pork chop, or salmon, follow same instructions, seasoning salmon on flesh side only.

    Cook the Chicken

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken to hot pan, skin side down, and cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. If using boneless skinless chicken breasts or bone-in pork chop, follow same instructions. If using salmon, follow same instructions, searing only on flesh side, 2-4 minutes. Transfer to prepared baking sheet, skin side up. Roast in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 24-28 minutes. If using boneless skinless chicken breasts, roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes. If using bone-in pork chop, roast until chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-9 minutes. If using salmon, roast until salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-10 minutes. Wipe pan clean if using salmon. Tent chicken, pork, or salmon with foil. Rest cooked chicken at least 5 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While chicken roasts, finish potatoes.

    Finish the Dauphinoise Potatoes

    Add cream, shallot (reserve 1 Tbsp. for sauce), half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for topping), ½ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper to pot with potatoes. Gently stir to combine. Transfer potatoes to prepared casserole dish. For best results, use 1½-2½ cup capacity dish. You may also use a small oven-safe pan, including a cast iron. Top with remaining Parmesan and bake until cheese browns, 18-20 minutes. Wipe pot clean and reserve. While potatoes bake, cook carrots.

    Make the Vichy Carrots

    Return pot used to make potatoes to medium heat. Add ½ cup water, carrot, brown sugar, butter, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pot. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until lightly glazed, 5-7 minutes. Remove cover and raise heat to medium-high. Stir often until carrot is tender, 6-8 minutes. Remove from burner.

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium-high heat and add ⅓ cup water, demi-glace, and remaining shallot. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing chicken on sauce and garnishing potatoes and carrots with chives. Bon appétit!
