Soggy outside, but a crispy dinner inside…

Today was a gloomy, wet day which lingered into the evening… to perk everything up a home cooked meal was the perfect remedy!
Boneless, crispy skin-on chicken breast served on a bed of wilted radicchio salad that was tossed with applewood smoked bacon.
I seasoned the chicken with just salt and seared them in an smoking hot cast iron skillet to crisp up the skin. Into the oven to complete the cooking process and it was time to move on to the wilted radicchio salad…
The radicchio was sliced up and tossed around in a pan of the rendered bacon fat until just wilted, but still had a slight bite to it.
The chicken was crispy on the outside; moist and flavorful on the inside, while the wilted radicchio salad was slightly bitter and had a hint of saltiness and smokiness from the bacon…
This dinner shed a bright light on an otherwise dark and soggy day!!

at a low simmer…
