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.

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients
    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. Strain potatoes in a colander. Wipe pot clean and reserve. While potatoes cook, peel and mince shallot. Mince chives. Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" pieces on an angle. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Chicken

    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 sear until well-browned, 3-4 minutes. Flip, and cook 2 minutes. Transfer to baking sheet and roast in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 18-22 minutes. Remove from oven and rest 5 minutes. While chicken roasts, finish potatoes.

  • Step 3 - Finish the Dauphinoise Potatoes

    Finish the Dauphinoise Potatoes

    Add potatoes, cream, half the shallot (reserve remaining for sauce), half the Parmesan, ½ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper to a mixing bowl and stir gently. 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. While potatoes cook, make carrots.

  • Step 4 - Make the Vichy Carrots

    Make the Vichy Carrots

Remove cover, raise heat to medium-high, and stir often until carrot is tender and glazed, 6-8 minutes. Remove from burner.

  • Step 5 - Make the Sauce
