Hands-on: 60 min. Total: 60 min.
This dish pairs early spring produce with cold-weather comfort.
4 large shallots, peeled and quartered
12 baby carrots, peeled
1 pound small red potatoes, halved lengthwise
2½ tablespoons olive oil, divided
¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 cup white wine
2 thyme sprigs
1 rosemary sprig
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1½ cups unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson), divided
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
1. Place a jelly-roll pan in oven. Preheat oven to 425° (leave jelly-roll pan in oven as it preheats).
2. Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl; drizzle with 1½ tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper; toss well to coat. Arrange vegetable mixture on preheated pan. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until golden and almost tender, stirring once.
3. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle remaining ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper evenly over both sides of chicken. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes. Turn chicken over. Place pan in oven, and bake chicken at 425° for 10 minutes or until done. Remove from pan, and let stand 10 minutes.
4. Return skillet to stovetop over medium-high heat. Add wine, thyme sprigs, and rosemary sprig; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook until liquid is reduced to 3 tablespoons (about 10 minutes). Place flour in a small bowl. Stir in ½ cup stock and mustard; add flour mixture to pan. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly with a whisk. Add remaining 1 cup stock and vegetable mixture to pan. Bring to a simmer; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in chopped parsley and chopped thyme. Serve chicken with sauce and vegetables.
