This story begins just as the great Sophia Petrillo began so many of hers on "Golden Girls." Picture it: Sicily, 1922. A down-at-the-heels chicken farmer wanted to win the affection of a fetching young neighbor with a home-cooked meal. But it turned out she's paleo! What was a shabby chicken farmer to cook for this protein-preferring person that's still delicious enough to impress? He served forth a pan-roasted chicken with a fragrant herb blend next to mozzarella-crusted Roma tomatoes and roasted green beans dappled with fresh garlic. The drizzle of sweet-tangy balsamic glaze clinched it, and the two lived happily for many years, until they separated because she wouldn't stop talking about CrossFit.
