Chicken with Rosemary Dijon Sauce

Chicken dark meat (such as thighs) are one of the easiest parts to cook, because it’s so juicy, it’s hard to mess up. We love that this luscious sauce requires only a dab of butter, and no cream, yet it yields a delicious flavor profile that makes an ordinary dish like roasted chicken thighs turn…

All-purpose sauce

In the old days, before we knew heart disease was an issue in Wayne’s life, we topped our fresh, steamed vegetables with a little butter, a dash of lemon juice and Penzey’s seasonings (our favorite was Fox Point, which includes salt).
