Chicken Saute with Rosemary Glaze and Minted Mash Potatoes

This is a delicious dish bursting with flavor through a blend of fresh herbs and wonderful oils and vinegars. An easy dish to create using classic techniques this is a meal that can shine on any table. For me it's not only the way the chicken is cooked it is the blends of ingredients that come together to create a mouth watering glaze that really makes the dish. I have herbs all over my garden so i often try to create dishes that incorporate the wonder flavors they deliver. This is a dish that has fast become a classic in my home. All of the oils, Vinegars, Seasoning salts and more I get from a great store called Oleaceae in NM (they ship too) and if you want to take a look at what selection they have they have a great website at

Ingredients For 2 People

2 Nice Chicken Breasts

2 Tbsp Garlic Oil

1 Garlic Clove Minced

2 Tbsp Fresh Chopped Rosemary

2 Tbsp Fresh Chopped Mint

1 Cup Fresh Chicken Stock

2 Tbsp Pinot Noir Red Wine Vinegar

4 Medium Sized Potatoes (Peeled)

1 Egg Yolk

Good Knob of Butter

Fleur de Sel Grill Spices (to season)

Firstly season the chicken with the Fleur de Sel spice mix (or just S & P if you have none) and let sit for 10 mins. Then put a pan of water on high to get ready for the potatoes. In a saute pan heat the oil over high heat, when hot enough place the chicken breasts in the pan and saute on each side for 4 minutes (until they get a nice brown color). When the pan of water is boiling add the potatoes. Once the chicken has been cooking for 4 minutes either side turn the heat down to a medium low and cover for 10-12 minutes, turning once. As soon as the chicken is ready, remove and put in a bowl. Then turn the skillet back up to high and saute the rosemay and garlic for 30 seconds until fragrant. At this point add the Red Wine vinegar for a further 20 seconds before adding the stock. When the sauce has thickened too a nice consistency (about 7 mins or until reduced by about half) add the chicken back to the pan, cooking for a minute either side. Meanwhile drain the cooked potatoes, add the seasoning, mint, butter and egg yolk and mash until smooth. Place a portion of the potatoes on each plate and add the chicken. Pour the remaining glaze over the chicken and serve with your desired vegetables. Enjoy!

      Chilean Sea Bass is another fish whose name has been changed in order to increase its marketability. Its actual name is the Patagonian Toothfish, a name I quite like. Sure the name doesn’t carry the menu...
