Spring Chicken in a Skillet


Today I’m sharing the recipe for Spring Chicken in a Skillet — chicken and three sides (potatoes, asparagus and peas) all in one bright spring dish.

You need

olive oil
1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts, preferably organic and kosher, cut into chunks
1 red onion cut into thin wedges
1 pound small red potatoes, unpeeled diced
3 garlic cloves chopped
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon thyme chopped
1 bunch asparagus, woody bottoms snapped off, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup fresh or frozen defrosted peas
1 1/2- cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
3 tablespoons wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley and/or dill

To make 6 servings

In a large non stick pan, drizzle in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Over medium high heat, saute the onions until golden, then add the garlic, potatoes, and a bit of salt. Saute until the potatoes are tender.

Meanwhile toss the chicken with the flour, thyme and 1 teaspoon salt. When the potatoes are done, take them out of the pan, and put them aside.

If you need to, wipe out the pan and add a bit more olive oil. Saute the chicken until golden, you might have to do this in 2 batches. This will take about 10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients let the pan start to bubble thickening the sauce, stir in the the potatoes. Shower with parsley and serve.
