Quick-Braised Chicken with Caramelized Fennel and Endive
This dish delivers a lot of sophistication for not much time spent in the kitchen. The chicken rests on a bed of mild autumn vegetables, enriched with cream and wine. If the chicken you buy weighs more than 2 pounds, you may need to simmer it a few more minutes.

Thai Chicken Coconut Soup (Tom Kha Gai)
As satisfying as the version served at your favorite Thai restaurant, but enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. Flavors of lime, chile, and cilantro cut through the creamy broth for a tangy, silky combination.
All the best flavors of the Mediterranean, tossed in a lovely salad. We prefer the chicken grilled and sliced, but if you're pressed for time, you can easily substitute 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken from the deli.
