The appreciation will swell to bursting on a crisp evening, when you serve up this bright number inspired by the keto diet. You’ll cook down cherry tomatoes until they’ve softened into a sauce, with garlic and a dash of balsamic vinegar (which cooks off to leave a mellow taste). Swirl around chicken breasts as they simmer to tender. Make a quick salad from string peas and baby greens while your anticipation rises.

Start the chicken
Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the chicken and cook, partially covered, 3 to 4 min. per side, until partially cooked. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Finish the chicken & skillet
To the pan of tomatoes, add ½ the vinegar. Cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 30 sec. to 1 min., until evaporated. Add the chicken, demi-glace, ⅔ cup water (double for 4 portions) and S&P; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min., until the chicken* is cooked through and the sauce has slightly reduced. Add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions); stir well.
