Fall Food Fridays: Main Dishes

For the next few Fridays here at The Finer Things, I'll be presenting you with fantastic fall foods to please your palette. Today's focus will be on main dishes with fall flair. All three of these main course suggestions involve fruits that are abundant in autumn.
Roasted Cornish Hen with Grapes:  This dish can be prepared as shown, with Cornish hens, or with boneless chicken breasts. It would pair nicely with a glass of wine.

Pistachio-Pomegranate Pilaf with Duck:  Pomegranates are such a great addition to fall menus. They are sweet, and add beautiful color to the plate.

Chicken with Cranberry Sauce:  Cranberry sauce shouldn't be reserved for Thanksgiving's menu only. Enjoy it throughout fall, especially with chicken instead of traditional turkey.

Be sure to stop by The Finer Things next Friday for our last Fall Food Friday feature. Here's hoping you have a sweet tooth... we'll be bringing you some decadent desserts!
