Get all the cheesy goodness of a fondue-type sauce without the cheesy badness of the 1970s. You won't need any polyester bell-bottoms or pet rocks for this creamy Parmesan and chive sauce, which delightfully smothers a succulent chicken breast. A pepper-y salad of arugula, crunchy apples, and almonds makes this calorie- and carb-conscious meal totally groovy. To the max, man.

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and chicken breasts to hot pan. Cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet. Roast in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes. Rest cooked chicken at least 3 minutes and tent with foil. Wipe pan clean and reserve. While chicken roasts, make sauce.
