Balsamico, where the word "balsamic" comes from, means "balsam-like," curative or restorative. This meal provides curative powers galore; see the "Did You Know" for all the magic rosemary can do. (Not that you need to be cured; you look great to us!) Chicken breasts are glazed in a mix of balsamic vinegar, Dijon, and fig preserves, bringing out that perfect mix of sweet, sharp, and salty. Rosemary-roasted mushrooms and green beans pair perfectly with the chicken and sauce, making for a dish that will restore you, even if you are perfect to begin with (which you are).

    Cook the Mushrooms

    Place mushrooms on prepared baking sheet. Toss to coat with 2 tsp. olive oil, rosemary sprigs, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer on one half of baking sheet and roast 8 minutes. Mushrooms will finish cooking in later step. While mushrooms roast, sear chicken.

    Cook the Green Beans

    After mushrooms have roasted 8 minutes, remove baking sheet from oven and add green beans to other half. Add garlic, 1 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper to green beans and carefully toss to coat. Roast until vegetables are tender and lightly charred, 8-10 minutes. While vegetables roast, finish chicken.

    Finish the Chicken

    Return pan used to sear chicken to medium heat. Add balsamic vinegar, Dijon, fig spread, and 2 Tbsp. water to hot pan. Carefully add mushroom liquid if desired. Stir and bring to a simmer. Add chicken and any accumulated juices. Cook, flipping chicken occasionally, until sauce lightly glazes chicken and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-4 minutes.
