  • Table salt and ground black pepper

Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 medium shallot, minced (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 4 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 1 cup of diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup of low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons of Maille White Wine Vinegar

  • 6 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 2 small bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • Season to taste with table salt and ground black pepper
Serves:
4 people

Preparation

Chicken

  1. Heat oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. Slice the chicken breasts in half to form thin cutlets. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until browned, about 2 minutes.
  3. Flip cutlets and continue to cook. Transfer to large heatproof plate.
  4. Add 2 teaspoons of oil to empty skillet and repeat, cooking remaining cutlets.

Sauce

  1. Add 2 teaspoons of oil, the shallots and the tomato paste into a hot skillet. Stir constantly until softened, about 30 seconds.
  2. Lower the temperature to medium-high heat and add the chicken broth, the vinegar, the light brown sugar, tomatoes, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a boil and then lower to a gentle simmer. Cook until the sauce has reduced to approximately half a cup – about 6-7 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in the butter 1 tablespoon at a time.
  3. Adjust seasoning and serve with cutlets.
  4. Serve with fresh vegetables or over rice.
