Chicken Bundles with Rosemary Cream Sauce

 Looking for a delicious alternative to Ham for Easter Dinner?? This is what is on the menu at our house. A couple of years ago I saw Rachel Ray making Golden Bloom Chicken – which was the inspiration for this adaptation. My family loves these little bundles –  Yes, they are a little time consuming, but worth the effort for a special dinner.

Marinade for Flank Steak or Chicken

 

We love to grill and we love to marinate flank steak to go with our Caramel Potatoes! Fortunately we can grill year round in Texas (I’m so sorry for you that are still dealing with snow, but summer will come).

CARAMEL POTATOES (Our Signature Dish)

 

If you were to ask any member of our family what their favorite meal is, the answer would be unanimous: Caramel Potatoes with Marinated Grilled Flank Steak.

Our dad/granddad was a potato farmer; so we know a thing or two about potatoes. We love potatoes in our house: We know lots of ways to make them, and lots of ways to eat them, and we like them all-alot! However, our hands-down favorite is Caramel Potatoes.
The original name for this recipe is Rosemary Potatoes with Carmelized Onions- for us they have become simply Caramel Potatoes. When your youngest
