Our daughter, Jessi, absolutely loves mashed potatoes, and so in June of 2006 she and I set out to create the mashed potatoes of our dreams. She wanted rich, flavorful, indulgent potatoes… I wanted potatoes that managed to taste indulgent, without all the remorse.
Glazing makes chicken extra tasty and incredibly tender. For a quick meal, throw it on a bed of spinach, or spoon it over rice. It pairs beautifully with an easy side, such as Corn And Tomato Fiesta Salad, Herbed Whipped Potatoes, or Blanched Broccoli.
This is a great dish to take to gatherings. It takes minutes to prepare, and is easy to pack and transport. Show it off in an attractive serving bowl and watch it disappear!
After I finished testing this recipe, I made it again and again over the next three days. It was absolutely addictive. The glaze from the butter and brown sugar creates a subtle sweetness, while the craisins and ham add a beautiful contrast of tart and savory.
