Dauphinoise potatoes are perfect for layering. So bake some following my recipe here and then pile spring greens on top, I cooked mine in a little oil and butter and lots of freshly ground black pepper.
The chicken was leg, which I painstakingly boned. This is one of the skills we teach at the cookery school. It had been resting in the fridge bathed in Ras al hanout and olive oil all day.
On top of this was baby beet leaves. just dropped in the chicken pan and stirred a couple of times.
I can hear you shouting “Why bother boning a chicken leg?” all the way over here in sunny Spain.
1) The meat on the chicken leg is so much tastier than breast.
2) I wanted to do the whole piling up thing… Hard to do with a thigh and a drumstick.
3) I like to eat with just a fork. Less washing up.
It was very good.
