Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Heat a large saute pan over high heat and add the oil. Season both sides of chicken breast with salt and pepper, to taste. Sear the chicken, skin side down, 4 to 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, flip the chicken, cover the pan and cook on second side for 7 to 8 minutes.

  • After second side has been cooked, add the wine, garlic, and herbs and continue to cook until the liquid is reduced by half.

  • Transfer the chicken to a serving platter and allow it to rest.

  • Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the butter, scraping up the bits from the bottom of the pan.

  • Serve the chicken with Potato-Vegetable Hash and the pan sauce. Garnish with chives.

Potato Vegetable Hash:
  • Using a box grater, shred the potato, zucchini and squash, and add them to a large bowl.

  • Stir in the onion, egg, flour, garlic, herbs, and Cajun spice. Blend well. Add more flour if mixture is too wet. The mixture should hold its shape when squeezed.

  • Heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil. Portion the hash into 2 cakes, then gently put them in the pan. Cook until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes, then flip and cook until the other side is browned. Remove them from the pan to a paper towel and season with salt, to taste. Serve warm.
