Medium Oven-Safe Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Prepare the Ingredients
Stem and mince oregano.
Peel and slice shallot into very thin rounds.
Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
If using pork chops, follow same instructions.
Make the Parmesan Crust
Thoroughly combine Parmesan, panko, 2 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
Make the Balsamic Vinaigrette
In another mixing bowl, combine ⅓ the Dijon (reserve remaining for chicken), balsamic vinegar, oregano, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Slowly pour in 2 Tbsp. olive oil while stirring until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
Cook the Chicken
Place a medium oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes.
Flip chicken, and remove pan from burner. Brush chicken with remaining Dijon and top with Parmesan crust.
Place pan in hot oven and roast until crust has lightly browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 8-12 minutes.
If using pork chops, follow same stovetop instructions and roast in hot oven until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes.
Remove from oven and rest at least 5 minutes.
Finish the Dish
Toss spring mix, shallot (to taste), and tomatoes in bowl with balsamic vinaigrette.
If desired, slice chicken into ½" pieces.
