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).

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Quarter mushrooms. Mince garlic. Trim ends off green beans. Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Mushrooms

    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.

  • Step 3 - Sear the Chicken

    Sear the Chicken

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add chicken to hot pan and cook until browned, 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Green Beans

    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.

  • Step 5 - Finish the 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.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish

    Plate the Dish

    Discard rosemary sprigs and serve mushrooms and green beans on a plate with chicken in front. Spoon any remaining sauce from pan over chicken.
