Grilled Chicken with Sun Dried Tomatoes Balsamic and Arugula…just had to do that translation for you!  I’ve created this recipe while staying in Tuscany~~Ben and I have a small villa, so we did some meager grocery shopping~~you know, just few things for snacks, breakfast and maybe a dinner in.   Well, here’s what was created with just a few ingredients, and I’m telling you, it’s wicked good!  In fact, Ben said it out strips the Michelin restaurant we ate in for lunch!  (Do you think he’s being straight up???)

pollo alla griglia con pomodori secchi balsamico e rucola Serves:  2

What you need:

2 large chicken breasts

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (divided)

Sea Salt

Coarse Ground Pepper

1/2 cup sliced sun dried tomatoes in oil

Random drops of a good balsamic

1/2 cup fresh arugula

What you do:

Over medium high heat in a grill pan, pour half the olive oil.  Salt and pepper the chicken breasts well on both sides.  Put in the hot oil and sear on each side about 3 minutes to each to get a golden brown and markings.  Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking about 5+ minutes per side.  When done, remove to a plate.  Let rest.

Deglaze the skillet with about 1/4 cup of water.  Increase heat to medium high and add sun dried tomatoes with oil.  Stir and cook about 7 minutes.  Slice the chicken at an angle.  Drizzle with remaining olive oil.   Cover with sun-dried tomatoes and au jus.  Serve immediately.

  1. Miss Ally, this sounded so good, I made it for lunch just now (“boho’d” it into an entree by deglazing the pan with chicken stock and making risotto & tomatoes.) Those random drops of balsamic took it over the top! Your hubby wasn’t exaggerating. 🙂

    • Kimmmy!!! What a great boho’ing you did!! Risotto/Tomatoes…Yes yes!! I didn’t have that, but next time will do it the Kimmie way!! Yes, those random drops of balsamic were the only thing I had in my meager pantry here, but wow, worked great!! Thank you, angel!! xo
