We have a screened-in porch and after ten years, we finally gave it some love and turned it into the porch we always wanted. We even hand built a farmhouse table for it so we can gather round it for Feast and Merriment. The inaugural dinner was one I gave great thought to and finally decided on Ina Garten’s Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic served with Roasted Asparagus and Parmesan Risotto. It was divine- everything came together beautifully and it truly was an evening of Feast and Merriment!
I have been wanting to try this recipe for a long time and I am actually angry a myself for not trying it sooner. It’s amazing. Simply amazing. I encourage you to try this recipe because it is so, so good, but before you do, know that it is an intermediate level recipe and a bit of work, so you need to commit-but its worth it! I also recommend doubling or tripling the sauce.
Feaster’s tip: I highly recommend factoring in extra time to clean up and regroup after searing off all the chicken- it splatters, takes longer than you think and not something you want to do with company in your kitchen! Once you get past that step, you’ll be on your way!
