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
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.
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.
