Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

Chicken

  1. To speed up the cooking process, cut the chicken breasts lengthwise into thin cutlets.
  2. Season both sides of the chicken with salt, ground black pepper, and seasoning of choice.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter or oil to the skillet when hot. Carefully place the chicken breasts in the skillet and cook for about 4 minutes on each side. The chicken is ready to serve when it's no longer pink.
  4. Salad

  5. Prepare the vegetables and add them to a bowl.
  6. Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and season to taste. Toss well and serve.
  7. Aioli

  8. Add the mayonnaise, garlic, and lemon juice to a bowl and stir until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve right away, or set aside while preparing the rest of your meal to let the flavors develop further. If you're preparing it much in advance, refrigerate it until ready to serve.

Tips

When the chicken is almost cooked, add some heavy cream and more seasoning to the skillet to make a quick, delicious sauce.

Spice it up! Try oregano, garlic, and rosemary for a Greek twist; Tex-Mex spice for some heat; or tarragon and herbes de Provence for a French flair.
