A note about serious food allergies

We just weren't made for these times… we prefer the simplicity, pace, and values of another time, a time when families sat down to a Sunday dinner without devices and actually talked to each other, face to face. This meal harkens back to those times, if not bringing them back to your home and hearth. Succulent chicken, seasoned with thyme, shares a rich, buttery gravy with fluffy mashed potatoes. Peas and shallots round out the side, every mouthful bringing you back to a sepia-toned past you either experienced or read about on your device. Times may change, but some dinners remain warmly delicious no matter the era.

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Cook the Mashed Potatoes

    Cut potatoes into 1" dice. Bring a small pot with potatoes covered in water to a boil. Cook until tender, 14-18 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander. Return potatoes to pot and add sour cream, half the butter (reserve remaining for gravy), and ¼ tsp. salt. Mash until smooth. If too dry, add reserved potato cooking water 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached. Set aside. While potatoes cook, prepare ingredients.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem and coarsely chop thyme. Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Sprinkle chicken with thyme and remove from pan. Tent with foil and rest at least 3 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While chicken cooks, cook peas.

    Cook the Peas

    Place a small pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 3-4 minutes. Add peas, 2 Tbsp. water, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until peas are hot and water has evaporated, 1-2 minutes. Remove pan from burner.

    Make the Gravy

    Combine ¼ cup water, white cooking wine, demi-glace, and cornstarch in a mixing bowl. In pan used to cook chicken, add demi-glace-cornstarch mixture and stir vigorously. Place pan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Cook until thickened, 30 seconds. Remove from burner and swirl in remaining butter. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, spooning gravy on potatoes and chicken. Bon appétit!
