Pan Seared Chicken Breast with Quinoa Pilaf & Lemon


2oz Olive Oil

1 Chicken Breast

1oz Cherry Tomato

1 Tbsp. Fennel

6oz Chicken Stock

½ Tsp Green Onion

1 Tbsp. Shallot

1 Tsp Garlic


Take a sauté pan, and heat with 2oz of olive oil, until it starts to smoke.

Next, season your chicken breast with salt and pepper and place skin down.

Cook until brown.

Place chicken into the oven for 12min, at 500 Degrees. Always temp your chicken. Once chicken has reached 165 degrees let it rest.

Next take your pan that you cooked the chicken in back on the stove and add your onions, garlic, and shallots. Cook until golden brown.

Then, add fennel, and tomatoes. Once your tomatoes are charred, add 3oz of chicken stock and let it reduce for 2min on medium heat.

Add quinoa and add the remaining of your chicken stock and reduce until almost gone.

Finally, take your chicken and brush with butter and add to the oven for another 3 min until crispy brown. Plate the Quinoa first with the chicken on top with lemon slices for garnish.
