Nick Leahy's Provencal Chicken with Persillade & Dijon-Apple Cabbage
Set to open two new concepts in the Midtown neighborhood of Atlanta this winter, a French provencal restaurant called Aix with a connecting wine bar next door named Tin Tin, chef and new father Nick Leahy surely has a lot on his plate - but you better believe it’s all delicious! Born in Bermuda, Leahy brings his heritage and experiences growing up cooking with his mother and later traveling the world to the kitchen, where he expertly crafts dishes that highlight the quality of fresh ingredients without too much complexity. This dish is an excellent example of those sentiments: whole chicken from Springer Mountain Farms is painted with a mixture of Greek yogurt and fresh herbs before taking a turn in the oven to cook until savory and fragrant. It’s paired with a tender mixture of braised cabbage and apple seasoned with cider vinegar and mustard for a bit of brightness to complement the comforting notes of this family-style meal.
