Cooking time

20 minutes




440 /serving

We’re here for a good thyme, not a long time! The evergreen taste of the fresh herb permeates this stylish meat and veg supper, which hits the table in just 20 minutes. It’s appealingly traditional yet on trend with Clean15 considerations, which means we’re sidestepping the starches in favour of cubes of roasted beets and broccoli florets. Pan-seared chicken breasts slice easily, ladled with a garlic, thyme and demi-glace sauce that’s smoothly finished with butter.

Roast the vegetables
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium bowl, combine the beets, a drizzle of oil and S&P. On a lined sheet pan, toss the broccoli with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Add the beets. Roast, stirring halfway, 15 to 18 min., until tender.

Cook the chicken
Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices and S&P. In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the chicken* and cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.

Make the sauce
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the garlic and sauté, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the demi-glace, thyme, ¼ cup water (double for 4 portions) and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 2 to 3 min., until the sauce has slightly thickened. Off the heat, add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions); stir well.
