Most people like the plain Jane boneless, skinless chicken breasts. But not us, and not you… we love the “complication” of skin and bones. Complication, puh; the bones and the skin protect the juiciness of the breast, and the roasted skin brings both texture and flavor to the game. This is bone-in, skin-on chicken at is finest, seared, then seasoned, then roasted to perfection. Sweet pears and delightful Brussels sprouts compliment the “complicated” chicken with sweet and salty flavors.
