Chicken Baked In A Potato Crust. Green Beans With Bacon.

This is a very simple dish. Bone and tie a leg of chicken. Sear it in a hot pan and allow to cool in the fridge. Peel a russet potato and cut thinnish slices lengthwise. Soak them in a water with plenty of salt and a little lemon juice. They will become pliable after a few minutes. Take the chicken out of the fridge and season it well. Cover it with whatever you wish, in this case I used zucchini and tomatoes. You can also use spinach and bacon etc. etc. Season again and wrap the whole thing in the potato slices. In the meantime you have melted a little butter. You brush the butter on to the potatoes and bake in a medium oven. Finish the last 5-10 minutes with the broiler on to give the potatoes a final color.
You can use just about any sauce. Here I used a little butter and shallot cream sauce.
