A note about serious food allergies

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) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using salmon, pat dry and season flesh side with seasoning blend. Follow same instructions as chicken in Step 3, searing, skin side up, until golden brown, 2-4 minutes, then roasting, seared-side up, untill salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-10 minutes.

  • If using filets mignon, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1 and 3, searing 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting until steak reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-9 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

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

    If whole, coarsely chop pecans.

    Mince chives.

    Peel and mince shallot.

    Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with savory seasoning blend.

  2. 2

    Cook the Carrot

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add carrot 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 liquid is mostly evaporated and carrot is tender, 10-15 minutes.

    Uncover, and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until liquid thickens to coat carrot, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While carrot cooks, cook chicken.

  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.

    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, make sauce.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

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

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

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

    Remove from burner and stir in remaining butter.
