Sabatier Canada : Smashed Chicken Roasted with Herbs, Orange, Prosciutto and Brandy

I worked on a project with Sabatier Canada a while back. If you're not familiar :

Sabatier’s rich history is steeped in the traditions of excellence and time-honoured craftsmanship. Quality products utilizing premium materials are hallmarks of this world renowned brand. The Sabatier brand dates back to 1812, to a small workshop in the Thiers region of France.  Philippe Sabatier, a local craftsman, meticulously designed and produced a highly innovative kitchen knife, which rapidly grew in popularity across the region amongst professional cooks and butchers. To keep up with demand, Philippe recruited members of his family to help with production. Today, staying true to its European roots, Sabatier branded products exude refined elegance with contemporary tones garnering universal appeal. The trademark griffin insignia continues to guarantee the professional quality of distinctive Sabatier products.

I was tasked with creating 8 original recipes to be featured on the Sabatier Canada website, of which the Smashed Chicken pictured above is one. Here's the link to the chicken recipe, and, make sure to check out the other recipes I created. Also, have a look at the recipes some of my awesome fellow Canadian blogger friends created too!
