Dish of the Week: Smoked Chicken Breast at DC Harvest

Smoked Chicken Breast at DC Harvest

Dish of the week is an ongoing series from District Cuisine that highlights one of our favorite dishes from a local restaurant.

District Cuisine’s Dish of the Week returns this week with a featured dish on the DC Harvest spring menu: the smoked chicken breast.  The dish features a generous portion of slow smoked chicken  (with a nice crispy skin) plated over sauteed greens and cranberries with a spicy syrup drizzled over it.  The smokey flavor of the chicken could standalone but is enhanced and made even more interesting by the accompaniments.  The dish is finished with a cheddar grit cake on the side.
