  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil

Serves 4

  1. Arrange an oven rack so that it is 6 to 8 inches from the broiler element.  Preheat the broiler to high.
  2. In a small bowl combine the butter with the shallot and sun-dried tomatoes; set aside.
  3. Line a broiler pan or baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Place the chicken breasts skin side down on the prepared pan.
  4. Brush the top side of each chicken breast with the olive oil.  Season each breast with a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
  5. Broil the chicken for 5 minutes on one side, and then turn the breasts over.
  6. Spread the sun-dried tomato butter over the skin side of each chicken breast.  Lay a piece of aluminum foil over the top of the chicken breasts so that the butter doesn’t burn, and then broil the chicken for 5 to 6 minutes more, or until the internal temperature reaches 160F.
  7. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes and then serve hot.

Thanks. I have just started getting into the kitchen. My wife is a southern style cook and likes to make just about everything fried and unhealthy as possible. As I am about to hit the 40 yr old mark, I can't continue to eat this way unless I want to keep seeing those strange looks on my doctors face when he gets my yearly labs back. In other words, for the sake of my family's health, I have decided to take over the kitchen. Hopefully, I can do this without offending anyone. Thanks for the tips!
