Food fads come and go. But some recipes are tried, true, and timeless. Like this one: chicken, roasted carrots, and gravy are a trio that’s as top-notch as can be. To jazz things up just a little bit, though, we’re introducing mashed potatoes with Parmesan and black pepper, a combo that’s known in Italy as “cacio e pepe.” Because, hey, even a classic can be improved by the magic powers of cheese.

Roast Carrots
Roast Carrots

Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel carrots, then cut on a diagonal into ½-inch-thick slices. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in oven until tender, about 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.


Meanwhile, mince 2 cloves garlic; smash another clove with the back of your knife (save last clove for another use). Pick parsley leaves from stems and roughly chop. Peel potatoes and cut into ¾-inch cubes. Place potatoes in a medium pot with a pinch of salt and enough water to cover by 1 inch.

Cook Potatoes and Chicken
Cook Potatoes and Chicken

Bring pot with potatoes to a boil, then lower heat and let simmer until easily pierced by a knife, 10-12 minutes. Drain. Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Season chicken all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook until browned and almost cooked through, 4-5 minutes per side.

Baste Chicken

Add 2 TBSP butter, smashed garlic, and thyme sprigs to pan with chicken. Once butter melts, tilt pan toward you and spoon butter over chicken continuously for 30 seconds. Stir in demi-glace and ½ cup water, then increase heat to high. Let bubble until thick and saucy, 2-3 minutes, spooning liquid over chicken every now and then. Remove chicken from pan and set aside to rest.

Mash Potatoes

Add 2 TBSP butter and minced garlic to pot used for potatoes and place over low heat. Once butter melts and garlic is fragrant, about 90 seconds later, return potatoes to pot and pour in ½ cup milk (we sent more). Mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth. Stir in Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. TIP: Add more milk as needed to give potatoes a creamy consistency.

Plate and Serve
Plate and Serve

Divide potatoes and carrots between plates, then arrange chicken on top of potatoes. Discard thyme sprigs and smashed garlic from pan, then drizzle chicken with sauce remaining in pan. TIP: Stir a splash of water into sauce, if needed, to give it a drizzly consistency.
