A note about serious food allergies

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 sauce, which delightfully smothers a succulent chicken breast. A pepper-y salad of fresh spinach, crunchy apples, crunchier celery, and almonds makes this calorie- and carb-conscious meal totally groovy. To the max, man.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using sirloin steaks, follow same instructions as chicken breasts in Steps 1 and 2, searing undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using pork chops, follow same instructions as chicken breasts in Steps 1 and 2, searing undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 6-8 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Pork thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner chop, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Quarter apple and remove core. Cut into thin slices.

    Trim ends off celery and cut into thin slices at an angle.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    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. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Roast in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes.

    Rest roasted chicken at least 3 minutes and tent with foil.

    While chicken roasts, make sauce.

  3. 3

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to sear chicken to medium-high heat. Add cream base and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Bring to a boil.

    Once boiling, remove from burner. Stir in Parmesan until smooth.

    If sauce is too thick, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  4. 4

    Make the Salad

    Combine seasoned rice vinegar, 1 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.

    Add apple, celery, and spinach and toss or gently stir to combine.
