salad dressing chickenServings: 4

4 bone in-skin-on chicken legs

For the salad dressing (or buy 4J pre-made salad dressing):
2 shallots- minced
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
Salt and pepper (to taste)

For the salad:
1 can cannellini beans (drain out liquid)
1 head of escarole (cleaned and chopped)
1 sprig of dill (roughly torn)
1 sprig of tarragon (roughly torn)
2 sprigs parsley (roughly torn)


Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.

Put chicken in a baking dish-skin side up.

Make the salad dressing by mixing all ingredients for salad dressing together in a large mixing bowl.

Pour the salad dressing over the chicken legs and massage so it is evenly distributed and chicken is completely covered.

Bake the chicken in the oven, uncovered, for 45 minutes.

Make the Salad by mixing beans and escarole with torn herbs in a mixing bowl.

Take your chicken out of the oven.

Pour half the sauce and juice from the chicken pan into the mixing bowl with your bean, escarole, herb mixture.

Plate the escarole and bean salad with the chicken on top.  Pour the rest of the sauce over the top of the dish.
Since escarole can be bitter when you wilt it with the hot dressing the escarole becomes more palatable.

EZRA’S Family has been producing Feta cheese in the Mediterranean region for more than 100 years. The recipes have been passed from generation to generation. This is the first time we introduce an authentic Mediterranean Feta cheese produced in the USA to the US consumers. Ezra’s Feta is creamy and smooth with a very authentic flavor. Unlike the traditional style feta which is very crumbly and in many cases sold as crumbled Feta, EZRA’S Feta is sold as chunks, sliced cubes that can be used in salads, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, baking, cooking and many other options. EZRA’S Feta is also available as a lite Feta with only 1.5g of fat per oz, but with all of the flavors and creaminess like the original. EZRA’S Feta is sold in a “Stay Fresh Cup” with brine to maintain freshness and flavors. The cheese is kept in a small basket in the brine that can be lifted and hung on top of the cup, out of the brine for convenient use. When finished enjoying the Feta you can lower it back into the brine to maintain freshness at all times.

    I found this recipe idea intriguing. However, as soon as I smelled the sauce I realized it is very much a mustard BBQ dressing. Nevertheless, I tried it on the salad and it did not taste like BBQ when combined with the herb rich salad. Thanks Sara!
