The Menu

This dish becomes an American farmhouse classic when served with Mashed Potatoes, Peas, and Salad. We bring it into the 21st century by mixing it up a bit.

Pan-Fried Chicken with Gravy


Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes

Boost the flavor and lower the fat by using buttery flavored Yukon Gold potatoes and cooking them in chicken broth instead of water. Drain and mash without butter: you'll never miss it, especially with the gravy.

Sugar Snap Peas

Available fresh or frozen all year round, these peas are sweet and snappy when cooked in boiling salted water for just 1 to 2 minutes. Toss with a dollop of butter -- it's all they need.

Romaine Cheddar Salad

A bag of romaine salad mix tossed with creamy ranch dressing and sprinkled with shredded cheddar cheese rounds out this dinner.
