Kosher salt 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, plus 1 tablespoon leaves

1 clove garlic, smashed Pinch of red pepper flakes Juice of 2 lemons (squeezed halves reserved)

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 4 skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts (6 to 8 ounces each)

10 ounces cremini mushrooms, halved

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 450. Cover the potatoes with cold water in a saucepan and salt the water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until tender, about 8 minutes; drain and set aside.

MAPLE BALSAMIC ROASTED CARROTS

Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a medium bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, vinegar, and olive oil until combined. Toss the carrots with half of the maple syrup mixture, then toss with the salt and rosemary until coated. Place the carrots in a well-seasoned medium cast iron skillet, we used the FINEX 8″ Cast Iron Skillet, interior facing up, and place them in the oven. 2. Roast for 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the thickness of the carrots, or until the edges of the carrots are a deep golden brown and the carrots have wrinkled slightly. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the remaining maple syrup mixture before serving. 3. 3. Finex pans provide a beautiful presentation straight to the table. After you’ve removed them from the oven, set them on the table and the dish will stay warm for about 10-15 minutes after. They are more forgiving for timing large holiday meals.
