Simplicity with complex flavors is the name of the game here. The hazelnut cream sauce doesn't take much prep, but it dresses the chicken in rich nuttiness, with slight hints of garlic. The side salad seems deceptively simple, but the tangy sweet balsamic and goat cheese combination dances with the tongue in all sorts of interesting ways. Who said easy isn't complicated?

Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.

Make the Sauce
Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add hazelnuts to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly toasted, 30-60 seconds.
Hot nut alert! Keep an eye on the pan as hazelnuts cook, as they may burn easily.

Once simmering, remove from burner.
