BOOM! Sometimes the stars align and the universe roots for you. This evening was one of those magical evenings. This parmesan encrusted chicken is a very hands on kind of meal. I thrive on dishes that require you to get a little dirty. You all know by now how I feel about roasted carrots…LOVE! I can and do eat them all the time. And how much cuter are they when sliced on the diagonal?! Check out the Barefoot Contessa for her recipe on the afore mentioned messy chicken.
