You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

Prepare the Ingredients
Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" rounds at an angle.
Slice mushrooms into ¼" slices.
Thinly slice chives.
Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of pepper.
Make the Vegetables
Place a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add carrot, pearl onions, ½ cup water, and chicken base (not demi-glace; that's used for mushroom sauce) to hot pot. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, cook until liquid almost entirely evaporated, 15-17 minutes.
Stir in peas, butter, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper and cook, 1 minute.
Remove from burner.
While carrots simmer, cook chicken.
Cook the Chicken
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat with 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and sear until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes per side.
Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Bake in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.
Make the Mushroom Gravy
Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add mushrooms to hot pan and stir occasionally until softened, 3-4 minutes.
Stir in flour until mushrooms are coated and no clumps remain, 1-2 minutes.
Add ⅓ cup water, demi-glace (not chicken base; that you used for carrot), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, cook until liquid thickens, 1-2 minutes.
Stir in chives. Remove from burner.
