Dinner Recipes Sides

Pan seared chicken paillard with a white wine broccolini tomato salad. Light, healthy and fresh, perfect for and easy dinner with just a few big flavor ingredients that can be home cooked in under 30 minutes.

Here’s How To Make It

Begin with the white wine vinaigrette. Add the white wine vinegar, dry yellow mustard, coarse salt, ground pepper, and extra virgin olive oil into a medium size mason jar. Secure lid and shake well until blended together. Adjust seasonings to taste.

Prepare your broccolini and tomato salad. Wash and halve the tomatoes. Place into a serving bowl. Steam the broccolini until tender crisp. Set aside to cool, or place directly into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking and preserve its rich green color. Once the broccolini is cool, give it a rough chop into bite size pieces. Add broccolini into the serving bowl of halved tomatoes. Toss with the white wine vinaigrette, and season with salt and pepper, all to taste. Set aside and begin the chicken paillards.

To prepare your chicken paillards, butterfly (or halve) each chicken breast. Place between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pound until evenly thin (about a ¼ inch thick). Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter to a skillet over medium to high heat. Sear chicken breasts on each side for approximately 1-3 minutes, or until done and nicely golden brown. Serve immediately with the broccolini tomato salad.
