Bring some fancy French into your life with this delightful herb sauce, mounted with rich butter that melds to the chicken like it was born to adorn it. (Which it was!) Brown sugar carrots add a special brand of sweet magic to these proceedings. Or should we say “douce magie?” Tip: This recipe has a shallot, which sometimes is rough to mince. Easiest way to mince shallot? Make thin slices lengthwise, then slices across, resulting in minced shallot.

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) |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using filets mignon or sirloin steaks, pat dry. Cook until steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrots on an angle into 1/2" slices.

    If whole, coarsely chop pecans.

    Mince chives.

    Peel and mince shallot.

    Pat chicken dry and season both sides with half the savory seasoning (remaining is yours to use as you please!).

  2. 2

    Cook the Carrots

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add carrots to hot pan and stir occasionally until starting to brown, 4-6 minutes.

    Add 1/2 cup water, half the butter (reserve remaining for sauce), brown sugar, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and stir occasionally until tender and liquid has mostly evaporated, 10-15 minutes.

    Uncover and bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until liquid thickens and coats carrots, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While carrots cook, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

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

    While chicken roasts, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add shallots to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.

    Stir in 1/4 cup water, demi-glace, herbes de Provence (to taste), and a pinch of pepper. Bring to a boil.

    Once boiling, stir constantly until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner and stir in remaining butter.
