• Adjust rack to top and middle positions and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces; place in a medium pot with enough salted water to cover by 2 inches. (TIP: For a smoother texture, peel potatoes first.) Bring to a boil and cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. Drain and return potatoes to pot. • Zest and quarter lemon. Thinly slice chives.
Slice baguette crosswise into 8 rounds (16 rounds for 4 servings); spread out on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toast on top rack until golden brown, 5-10 minutes. • Place ricotta in a small bowl; add half the lemon zest, 1 TBSP lemon juice, salt, and pepper and stir to combine. Spread ricotta onto toasted baguette rounds; drizzle with red pepper jam. Sprinkle with half the almonds and half the chives. • Serve with your favorite beverage for snacking while you prepare the rest of the meal. TIP: Prefer to serve the crostini with the main course? Toast now and assemble right before serving!
• Pat chicken* dry with paper towels and season all over with salt and pepper. • Lay two slices of prosciutto beside each other on a flat surface. Place a chicken cutlet along bottom of slices; tightly roll up prosciutto around chicken. Repeat with remaining prosciutto and chicken.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add wrapped chicken and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Turn off heat; transfer chicken to a second baking sheet. Wipe out pan. • Roast on middle rack until chicken is cooked through, 15 minutes.
• Mash potatoes with a potato masher or fork until smooth. (TIP: If potatoes have cooled, mash over medium-low heat.) Stir in half the cream sauce base (all for 4 servings), remaining chives, and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4), until combined. Season generously with salt and pepper. Keep covered until ready to serve.
• Melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in pan used for the chicken over low heat. Whisk in chicken stock concentrate, apricot jam, and half the honey. • When chicken is done, return to pan with any drippings and turn to coat in sauce. • In a large bowl, whisk together half the mustard, remaining honey, 2 TBSP olive oil, juice from one lemon wedge, salt, and pepper. (For 4, use all the mustard, 4 TBSP olive oil, and juice from two lemon wedges.) Add mixed greens to bowl and toss to coat.
• Slice chicken crosswise. • Divide chicken, mashed potatoes, and salad between plates. Drizzle chicken with any remaining pan sauce and top salad with remaining almonds. • Serve crumb cakes for dessert.
Chicken is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 165°.
