Really tasty. Used mache and garden cress in place of watercress. Reviewed on my blog: http://mmmsterdam.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/chicken-and-potatoes-with-mustard-vinaigrette/
Absolutely delicious! This could be ideal also for a potluck!
This is my current favorite dish. :) Everyone I've made it for requests the recipe. Changes I've made? Boil the potatoes at a full boil for 20 minutes. Double the potatoes and watercress if you have hearty eaters. Decrease the salt in the vinaigrette and use it as a drizzle and dipping sauce for the potatoes. It's very tasty, but very salty even after cutting the salt down.
This dressing is the best mustard salad dressing I've ever made! I did reduce the oil by 1 T because I like a pungent dressing. I used normal-sized red potatoes because they were cheaper, so I quartered them when I served the salad. I also baked instead of boiled them. And because my market didn't have watercress, I subbed arugula, which tasted wonderful. I had some nice tomatoes lying around, so I added those too for color, and I placed a sunny-side-up fried egg on top of each pile of salad (I suppose I was in a Basque mood). This was an EXCELLENT easy meal and I will certainly add it to the rotation.
If people are on special diets/want this and not that, they should look elsewhere....this is "Real Simple". Cut the oil, or use a different type oil if the fat upsets you. We love your recipes.....100% of them and this was no exception! The only change I made, was to roast my own chicken legs rather than cold picked over rotisserie, left the bones in, put lots baby mixed greens on top ----- putting the greens on top of the hot from the oven chicken slightly wilted them and allowed the great vinaigrette to absorb into both the greens and the hot fingerlings. My husband had 2 servings, and took the rest to work! Incredibly good........keep them coming!
SO disappointed in 99% of your recipes.... 30 grams of fat for a serving of dinner? Many recipes in the past weeks have been high in calories, saturated fat, and/or sodium. I'm sure many of your readers would appreciate more health conscious recipes in the future. Healthy meals can be "real simple" too.
we used spinach, and slightly decreased the amount of chicken. it was delicious. tons of flavor.
