Cooking time

20 minutes




630 /serving

He shoots, you score! This winning recipe gets the nod from Nick Suzuki, Montreal Canadiens captain. This sauce is so sumptuous you’ll want to sink right into it and stay a while. Caramelized onions lend their sweet and savoury flavour to the mix, rounded out with sautéed garlic, a splash of vinegar and a swirl of butter. Lavish it over chicken breasts as they finish cooking to a perfectly tender, perfectly browned state. A side of sliced roasted carrots is all you need to complete a carb-smart meal.

Roast the carrots
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Thinly slice the carrots on an angle. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Roast, flipping halfway, 14 to 16 min., until tender.

Start the chicken
Meanwhile, mince the garlic. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices and S&P. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the chicken and cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 min. per side, until partially cooked. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Make the sauce & finish the chicken
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the garlic and sauté, scraping up any browned bits, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the cream, onions, vinegar and 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions); bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and return the chicken*. Cook, spooning the sauce over, 2 to 3 min., until cooked through and coated. Add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) and S&P; stir well.

Thinly slice the chives. Divide the chicken (slice beforehand if desired) and carrots between your plates. Spoon the sauce over the chicken. Garnish with the chives. Bon appétit!
