Chicken with Shallots

Chicken with Shallots

One of the standout recipes from the Barefoot Contessa collection is the irresistible Chicken with Shallots. This dish is a true crowd-pleaser, with its succulent chicken breasts cooked to perfection and complemented by a flavorful medley of shallots. The magic happens when the chicken is roasted in the oven, resulting in a golden-brown exterior and tender, juicy meat.


  • 4 boneless chicken breasts, skin on (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (3 lemons)
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots (1 large)
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, diced, at room temperature

To begin, preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels and generously season them with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until it begins to smoke. Place the chicken breasts, skin side down, in the skillet and cook until golden brown. Flip the chicken using tongs, transfer the skillet to the oven, and roast for 12 to 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

While the chicken is roasting, prepare the shallot sauce. In a medium sauté pan, combine white wine, lemon juice, and shallots. Cook over medium-high heat until the liquid reduces to about 2 tablespoons. Add cream, salt, and pepper, then bring the mixture to a boil. Remove from heat and add diced butter, swirling the pan until the butter is incorporated. Be sure not to reheat the sauce to prevent it from “breaking.” Sprinkle with salt and serve the chicken hot with the luscious sauce generously spooned over it.

Green Green Spring Vegetables

Green Green Spring Vegetables

To accompany the tantalizing chicken, we have a delightful side dish called Green Green Spring Vegetables. This recipe, also from the Barefoot Contessa, showcases the vibrant colors and crunch of fresh green vegetables. It’s a delightfully versatile dish that can be customized with your favorite green veggies.


  • 1/4 pound French string beans (haricots verts), ends removed
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 pound sugar snap peas, ends and strings removed
  • 1/4 pound asparagus, ends removed
  • 1/2 pound broccolini, ends removed
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon good olive oil
  • 3 large shallots, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

To prepare, blanch the string beans in a large pot of boiling salted water for just 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon or sieve, transfer the beans to a bowl of ice water. Repeat the process with the sugar snap peas and asparagus, cooking each for 1 minute and then immediately immersing them in the ice water. Cut the asparagus into 2-inch lengths diagonally.

Boil the broccolini for 1 minute, then add it to the ice water along with the other vegetables. Once all the vegetables are cold, drain them well. When you’re ready to serve, heat butter and olive oil in a large sauté pan. Sauté the shallots over medium heat until lightly browned. Add the drained vegetables, salt, and pepper, and toss until heated through. Serve hot and savor the refreshing taste of these vibrant greens.
