Orecchiette with Chicken, Caramelized Onions, and Blue Cheese
The sweetness of the onions contrasts perfectly with the saltiness of the cheese in this exciting dish. Orecchiette (little ears) is a thick and satisfying pasta that we adore, but, if you like, you can use shells or bow ties instead.

1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, quartered and cut into thin slices
1 teaspoon salt
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, (about 1-1/3 pounds in all)
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 pound orecchiette
2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)




In a large nonstick frying pan, melt the butter with 2 tablespoons of oil over moderately high heat. Add the onions and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and cook, stirring frequently, until well browned, about 25 minutes. Remove.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan and reduce the heat to moderate. Season the chicken with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper and add to the pan along with the rosemary. Cook the chicken until brown, about 5 minutes. Turn and cook until almost done, about 3 minutes longer. Add the garlic. Cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Cover the pan, remove from the heat, and let steam for 5 minutes. Cut the chicken into 1/4-inch slices.

Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the orecchiette until just done, about 15 minutes. Reserve about 1/4 cup of the pasta water. Drain the pasta and toss with 2 tablespoons of the pasta water, the onions, the chicken with pan juices, the blue cheese, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. If the pasta seems dry, add more of the reserved pasta water.


Wine Recommendation: The onions and cheese drive the wine choice for this dish. A lighter red wine from the Piedmont region of Italy, such as one based on the barbera or dolcetto grapes, has the weight and acidity to stand up to the sweet and salty flavo

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
