A note about serious food allergies

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.
