Ingredients
  1. 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  2. Salt and pepper
  3. 1/4 cup Olivia's Basil Olive Oil
  4. 5-6 roma tomatoes, diced
  5. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  6. One handful fresh basil, loosely packed, cut into ribbons
  7. 1/4 cup butter
  8. 8 ounces pasta, like spaghetti, linguine, or bucatini
Instructions
  1. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap and pound each piece to an even thickness, about one inch or so in the thickest parts (this just helps it cook faster and more evenly).
  2. Remove the plastic and sprinkle each piece of chicken generously with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
  3. Prep the tomatoes, garlic, and basil and set aside.
  4. Make the pasta according to package directions.
  5. Heat the Basil Olive Oil on medium high in a large heavy skillet
  6. Add the chicken and cook for several minutes on each side – the goal here is to get the chicken cooked AND get a nice browning on the outside.
  7. When the chicken is done, set aside.
  8. Give the Basil Olive Oil a few minutes to cool, add the tomatoes, and return to heat.
  9. Simmer to cook the tomatoes down into a chunky-sauce-like-mixture.
  10. Add the garlic and butter and stir to combine until the butter is melted.
  11. Add the chicken back in to soak in the sauce for a few minutes.
  12. Just before serving, stir in the basil.
  13. Top servings of pasta with the chicken and the sauce.

Make the filling
  1. Put the panko, Cranberry Pear Balsamic and apple juice in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Stir in the rest of the stuffing ingredients and set aside.
  3. Cut a pocket in each pork chop by making a horizontal slice almost to the bone; fill with stuffing. (Pack it in there as tightly as you can.) Secure with toothpicks if necessary.
  4. Drizzle or brush with the Basil Olive Oil and Cranberry Balsamic; then sprinkle the rest of the seasoning ingredients on top of the pork chops.
  5. Put the pork chops into the prepared dish (uncovered) and bake for 35-40 minutes (or until the meat juices run clear). (If you have extra stuffing, you can mound it next to the pork chops in the pan.) If they're not as brown as you'd like, you can stick them under the broiler for a couple of minutes right before serving.

Lemon Olive Oil & Blacberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Lemon Olive Oil & Blackberry Balsamic Vinaigrette
Serves 4
Write a review
Print
Ingredients
  1. 6 cups (or 4 good handfuls) of mesclun or spring mix salad
  2. 3 tbsp Gorgonzola or blue cheese crumbles
  3. 20 grape tomatoes sliced in half
  4. 1 cup fresh blueberries or raspberries
  5. 1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds
  6. 4 tbsp Olivia's Lemon Olive Oil
  7. 2 to 3 tbsp Olivia's Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar
  8. 1 tsp Dijon mustard
Instructions
  1. In a dry frying pan over medium heat, toast the almonds on the stove – watching closely that they brown but don’t burn. Set them aside to cool off.
  2. In a large salad bowl, toss the mesclun or spring salad mix, the gorgonzola or blue cheese crumbles, the sliced grape tomatoes, the blueberries or raspberries and the cooled toasted almonds.
  3. In a resealable jar, combine the oil, vinegar and Dijon mustard. Close the lid tightly and shake vigorously. Although the usual ratio for vinaigrette is 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar, a higher ratio of vinegar to oil is recommended for this dressing. Taste test as you add the vinegar to see if you agree! I prefer 3 tbsp. of vinegar to 4 tbsp. of oil.
  4. When you are ready to eat salad, before, during or after your meal, dress the salad with the vinaigrette.
