A note about serious food allergies

Tarragon is a fresh herb whose narrow, soft leaves add delicate anise flavor to the light cream sauce served with this chicken. It's great for all seasons, but adds a perfect counterpoint to the fall flavors found in the miso-roasted carrots and pearl onions. With so much umami goodness on one plate, you won't believe such a delicious and satisfying meal is also low in calories and carbs.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Large Non-Stick Pan
  • 1 Small Bowl
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem and coarsely chop tarragon. Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ½" diagonal slices. Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.

  • 2

    Start the Carrots

    Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add carrots and pearl onions to hot pan and cook until vegetables begin to brown, 3-4 minutes. Whisk together miso, sugar, and ⅓ cup water in a small bowl.

  • 3

    Finish the Carrots

    Add miso-sugar mixture to pan with vegetables, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook until carrots are tender, 4-6 minutes. Remove cover, raise heat to high, and cook, stirring frequently, until liquid reduces to a glaze that clings to vegetables, 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with half the tarragon (reserve remaining for sauce). Cover and set aside. While carrots cook, start chicken.

  • 4

    Cook the Chicken

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned on one side, 3-5 minutes. Flip, cook 1 minute, then remove to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts, replenishing olive oil as needed. Transfer baking sheet to oven and roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-8 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • 5

    Make the Tarragon Sauce

    Return pan used to sear chicken to medium-high heat. Add evaporated milk and 2 tsp. tarragon to pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer until thicken enough to coat the back of a spoon, 2-4 minutes. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Taste, and add more tarragon if desired. Sauce will thicken as it cools.

    Plate the Dish

    Spoon sauce on plate and serve chicken over sauce. Arrange carrots and pearl onions next to chicken.
