A note about serious food allergies

It's possible the only combination of "tart" and "sweet" you're aware of is the kind you scarf down out of a cardboard box at the movies. But there's more to this twosome than mouth-puckering candies. The tartly sweet balsamic mixes with the sweetly sweet honey, with a touch of demi for base, and you've got a sauce that has all the action and adventure of a summer blockbuster, but much less work and not involving someone wearing a cape.

Before You Cook

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 pork chops, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1 and 2, cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve tomatoes. Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan. Cover, and cook undisturbed until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-5 minutes per side. Keeping pan covered cooks chicken faster. Transfer chicken to a plate and rest, 3 minutes. While chicken cooks, cook sauce.

  3. 3

    Make the Sauce

    Place a small pan over medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp. water, balsamic vinegar, honey, and demi-glace to hot pan and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until liquid is reduced by half, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner and swirl in butter and a pinch of salt and pepper.

  4. 4

    Make Salad and Finish Dish

    In a mixing bowl, toss or gently combine arugula, tomatoes, and dressing. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chicken with sauce and garnishing salad with Parmesan and croutons. Bon appétit!
