Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts, by Maillard
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 to 3 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 3 cloves of garlic – 2 finely chopped and 1 in slices
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Sauce

  • 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 1 tsp of mustard

Preparation

  1. Salt the chicken breasts and let temper for 15 to 20 minutes at room temperature.
  2. Heat a large pan. Add 2 tablespoon of olive oil, then brown the sliced garlic clove and a sprig of rosemary for 2 minutes over medium heat.
  3. Remove the garlic and rosemary from the pan. Turn up the heat to medium-high and cook the chicken for 5 to 7 minutes, until the underside of the breasts is golden brown. Turn the chicken over, season with pepper and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes, until cooked through (it should reach an internal temperature of 165°F). Remove the chicken breasts from the pan and set aside.
  4. In the same pan, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sear the cherry tomatoes for 3 minutes, stirring a few times. Add the second sprig of rosemary, chopped cloves of garlic, and cook 2 more minutes.
  5. Add the ingredients of the sauce and simmer for 2 minutes (the sauce has to boil at least 30 seconds). Add the chicken breasts in the pan to warm them a couple of minutes, basting them from time to time.
  6. Serve with pasta.
