Let's just say you've had the roughest of days: car won't start in the morning, then it dies on the drive home. Or your kid gets sick in the middle of the night, all over every bit of bedding he or she owns. That big project you thought you had two weeks for you have two days. She's going out with him, not you. Take out all those frustrations on an object that's done nothing to you, but can't complain: two meaty chicken breasts, just waiting to be paillard-ed into thinness. You'll cook these bad boys up with garlic, tomatoes, and lemon juice, and serve some nicely roasted broccoli on the side. Life is full of frustrations, but, thankfully, it's also full of flavors.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes. Lower heat to medium. Flip chicken, and immediately remove to a plate. Add 2 Tbsp. olive oil and garlic to pan and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, ¼ tsp. salt, chicken, browned side up, and any accumulated juices from resting chicken. Cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner. Sprinkle on parsley, lemon zest (to taste), and Parmesan.
