Now on to today’s recipe! I have watched the last two seasons of The Next Food Network Star. Last year I was pulling for Kelsey, but she didn’t win. This year I was hoping Melissa d’Arabian would win, and she did. So as the winner of the show, Melissa got her own show on the Food Network. Her first episode aired the week after the finale of Next Food Network Star. Her show is called $10 dinners. She provides dinner for 4, for under $10 on her show. This recipe for crispy-skinned chicken a l’Orange came from one of the shows and was the first recipe of hers that I made. It turned out fabulous.
The chicken was extremely tender and juicy and the simple glaze tasted amazing. My 5 year old daughter couldn’t stop eating this chicken, which is a feat in itself. I loved this recipe and will absolutely make it again. It is a dish you can make for company, that is simple, and is easy on the budget. I got my chicken for about $2.50 and you only talking $1 or more for the remaining ingredients.
Now on to the fabulous giveaway.
I must admit it’s the best one that I have had to date. I am even jealous and wish I could win. This item would also be perfect to cook today’s chicken recipe in. I get to give a Le Creuset Iron Handle Skillet in their cherry color thanks to Cookware.com. It retails on their site for $119.95. The inner cooking surface is satin black enamel which seals in juices creating a succulent and tender meal. This pan is ideal for searing, sautéing, tenderizing, frying, and deglazing. The uniform heating of cast iron ensures completely even cooking across the pan surface. It’s even dishwasher safe, so clean up couldn’t be easier.
Cookware.com is part of the CSN online store family.
They also have a great lighting store at csnlighting.com. That site even has great lighting for your kitchen. I am hoping one day to get some fabulous new lighting. They have a great selection of kitchen lights, contemporary lighting, track lighting, kitchen lamps, kitchen chandeliers, glass pendants and more. Best thing is most of their lights ship for free. Right now through the end of September they have their Murray Feiss on sale for 10% off. Make sure to check it out.
So to enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling me what you would like to cook in this pan if you win it. Please make sure you leave some way for me to contact you in your comment. A lot of people have private profiles and you may miss out if I can’t contact you. You can enter up until Sunday at midnight (mountain standard time). The winner will be announced in Monday’s post.
