Wild Caught—Canada $6.99 LB.

An unfussy chicken dinner.
t's the middle of December, and fussy and caloric party
fare is all around. A simple chicken dinner is in order.
Prepared with lots of garlic and fresh thyme, roasted
chicken on the bone with distinct Mediterranean flavor is
extra-easy to prepare. Complement the entree with couscous
flavored with sweet dried fruits and the surprise of aromatic
cilantro, cardamom and cinnamon. If cilantro isn't your favor-
ite herb, fresh dill or parsley is a wonderful alternative. Fresh
and crisp green bean-and-radish salad is an unusual, yet per-
fect, first course.
Best of all, most of these recipes can be prepared well
ahead of serving time.
From the sun-kissed slopes of Spain.
Deliciously sweet, seedless & easy to peel!

GREEN BEAN SALAD
11/2 lbs. haricots verts (thin green
beans), stem ends trimmed and cut
diagonally into 2-inch pieces
2 cups thinly sliced radishes
Y2 cup very thinly sliced red or
% cup olive oil
% cup red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. grained Dijon mustard
2 tsp. sugar
Y2 tsp. salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of water to a boil
over high heat. Add the beans, and cook
until bright green and nearly tender,
about 3 minutes. Drain in a colander,
and rinse under cold water to stop the
cooking process. Transfer the beans to a
large bowl. Add the radishes and onions.
Cover with plastic wrap, and chill until
ready to serve.
Make the dressing: Combine all ingre-
dients (except the pepper) in a jar with a
tight-fitting lid, and shake well.
To serve: Pour about half the dressing
over the green beans, and toss well. Add
more dressing to taste. Serve with fresh-
ly ground pepper. Makes 6 servings.
Combine the remaining ingredients
in another bowl, and whisk well. Pour
the mixture over the chicken, and rub
it over all the chicken pieces with your
hands. Cover, and chill for at least 1
hour (up to 8 hours).
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Arrange
the chicken pieces, skin-side up, on a
rimmed baking sheet or in a roasting
pan. Roast uncovered for 20 minutes.
Reduce heat to 350 degrees, and cook
for 10 minutes more. Turn the chicken
pieces over with tongs (do not use a
fork), and roast for 15 minutes more.
Turn the chicken over again, and cook
for 10 minutes more. Remove chicken
from roasting pan to a serving plate.
Tent with foil, and let rest for 5-10 min-
utes before serving with any pan juices
drizzled over. Makes 6 servings.
