[will's chicken]

A super flavorful but simple recipe.  I use chicken leg quarters (the leg and thighs connected), but substituting bone-in , skin on chicken breasts are fine too.  The skin and bones add depth to the chicken - just be sure not to eat the skin.  (Or bones... but that should be obvious!)

Sprinkle chicken (bone-in, skin on) with salt and pepper.  Heat skillet to medium/high, add a Tbsp (eyeball it) of Olive Oil and sear chicken until both sides are golden brown.

Make paste: 
2 Tbsp mayo
1 Tbsp (or more) sirachi
½ tsp minced garlic
½ tsp minced onion
¼ tsp rosemary
¼ tsp savory

Prepare a baking dish, like glass pyrex, with olive oil (to prevent sticking).  Place chicken in the dish and  smear paste on the skin side (facing up).

Bake at 425 for 20 minutes, until chicken reaches 165 degrees.

[new potatoes au gratin]

Serves 2-3
Estimated time: 40min

1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoons flour
1 cups whole milk
Salt and white pepper
6-8 new red potatoes, cooked and sliced 1/2-inch thick
3 ounces grated Cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease an 8 cup rectangular baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter. In a nonreactive saucepan, over medium heat, melt the remaining butter. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in the milk and cook until the liquid is slightly thick and coats the back of a spoon, about 4 to 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat. In a mixing bowl, toss the sliced new potatoes with salt and pepper. Fold in the cream sauce and pour into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the top of the potatoes with the grated cheese. Place the pan in the oven and bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
