Lemony Pan-Seared Chicken

with Pesto Potato Salad and Peas

Prepared pesto is one of our favorite shortcuts in the kitchen – it adds incredible flavor in no time at all. Tossed with sweet peas and crunchy pine nuts, it gives this potato salad serious oomph. A squeeze of lemon wakes the whole dish up.

Instructions

1

Prep and boil the potatoes: Cut the potatoes into ¾-inch cubes. Place the potatoes in a medium pot with enough water to cover and a large pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and cook for about 15 minutes, or until tender. While the potatoes cook, thinly slice the scallions and halve the lemon. When the potatoes are finished, remove them with a slotted spoon, but keep the water boiling on the stove for later.

Butterfly the chicken
2

Place your hand on top of the chicken breast and slice into the middle of the meat, parallel to the cutting board. Open up the chicken like a book and cover with a piece of plastic wrap. Pound with a large pan or mallet until ½-inch thick. Season the chicken on all sides with salt and pepper. Repeat with the other chicken breasts.

Toast the pine nuts
3

Heat a large pan over medium-low heat. Add the pine nuts and toss for 2-3 minutes, until toasted and fragrant. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Sear the chicken
4

Heat a large drizzle of oil in the same pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside to rest.

Make the pesto potato salad
5

Add the peas to the boiling water and cook for about 3 minutes, until tender, drain. Combine the peas, potatoes, scallions, pine nuts, 4 Tablespoons pesto, and a large squeeze of lemon in a medium bowl. Toss, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

6

Finish and plate: Thinly slice the chicken and serve on a bed of the pesto potato salad. Garnish with a drizzle of pesto and a squeeze of lemon, as desired. Enjoy!
