Tips

This recipe is from Home Chef Delivery Service...


Directions

You Will Need
Olive Oil Salt Pepper Cooking Spray
1 Baking Sheet 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry

Prepare a baking sheet with foil and cooking spray

Prepare the Ingredients
Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" slices on an angle. Trim bottoms off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball). Peel and mince shallot. Rinse capers and pat dry. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 2 - Roast the Vegetables

Roast the Vegetables
Place carrot slices and Brussels sprouts on prepared baking sheet. Toss with Parmesan, 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer (some overlap is ok). Roast in hot oven until tender and well browned, 25-30 minutes. While vegetables roast, cook chicken.

Cook the Chicken
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and chicken breasts to hot pan. Cook until chicken is browned and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-5 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate, rest at least 3 minutes, and tent with foil. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

Step 4 - Make the Sauce
4
Make the Sauce
Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and 1 Tbsp. shallot to hot pan. Stir constantly until translucent, 1-3 minutes. Add cream, capers, and accumulated juices from resting chicken. Stir occasionally until sauce thickens and a line can be drawn that holds for 10 seconds, 3-5 minutes. Remove from burner. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

Step 5 - Finish the Dish

Finish the Dish
