This slow-cooker chicken is a variation on Persian Fesenjoon, a medieval dish originally made with wild duck. This slow-cooker chicken stew is fork-tender with a perfect balance of sweet, sour and savory.
This chicken is a simple but luxurious dinner that takes about 15 minutes active time to prepare, followed by 40 to 45 minutes in the oven. The grapes roast into sweet, jammy goodness alongside the potatoes.

There is something romantic about classic French onion soup. The onion broth can be made ahead of time, heated, garnished with a gruyere-topped piece of toast and run under the broiler for a cheesey, melty bowl of goodness.
Cioppino, or fisherman's stew, is a great dish for entertaining 2 or 12 and surprisingly simple to make. Make the broth ahead of time and freeze until needed. When you are ready to serve defrost the broth, heat it up and add your choice of seafood.
