Chicken francaise is a american dish that is full of italian and french influences. The dish is pan fried chicken cutlets that are rolled in flour then egg then straight into a pan skipping the last flouring step. The egg coats the chicken in a thin layer and leaves a great browned color on the outside and sealing the juices inside making the chicken very tender. The final step is it is coated in a lemon butter sauce with capers and fresh thyme. Since the chicken is pounded thin, it cooks quickly which makes it a fast dinner that tastes like it takes double the time. Check out the recipe below in this post.

The classic Cobb salad is a classic American salad. There is many different ways of making it but it tends to be made with chopped salad greens, tomato, crisp bacon, boiled, chicken breast, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, chives, Roquefort or Gorgonzola cheese, and red-wine vinaigrette.
This autumn Cobb salad takes the classic salad and adds some seasonal changes that makes it just as good as the original. In place of the simple red wine vinaigrette, there is a creamy pecan maple dressing that is full flavored and complements the salad completely. The salad can be made as one large salad or can be made into many separate salads. I make this salad as simple food prep lunch for the week with the dressing on the side.
