We're big fans of pan sauces because they're a simple way to add extra flavor to dishes. And you seem to be fans of them too: the fig jam and balsamic vinegar-based sauce here was such a hit with our happy cooks last time that we’re adding this recipe to the HelloFresh Hall of Fame. It’s a sweet and savory condiment that you'll want to drizzle over everything—especially the juicy chicken breasts that take center stage.


Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut sweet potatoes into ½-inch cubes. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in oven until tender and crisped, 20-25 minutes.


Halve, peel, and mince shallot. Strip enough and chop enough rosemary leaves from stems to give you 1 tsp. Halve lemon.


Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and season all over with salt and pepper. Cook in pan until no longer pink in center, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside to rest.


Lower heat under pan to medium. Add shallot, chopped rosemary, and a drizzle of olive oil. Cook, tossing, until softened, 2-3 minutes. Stir in Colavita balsamic vinegar and half the fig jam (use the rest as you like). Simmer until syrupy, about 1 minute. Stir in ½ cup water and stock concentrate. Let reduce until saucy, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 TBSP butter. Season with salt and pepper.


Toss lettuce with a squeeze of lemon and a drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.


Thinly slice chicken, then divide between plates along with sweet potatoes. Drizzle chicken with sauce. Serve with salad on the side. TIP: A color-coated cutting board set makes it super easy to keep your produce and protein prep separate. Get one at HelloFresh.com/Shop
