Ingredients

Chicken: 
Spicy Tomato Sambal Sauce:
Potatoes:

Directions

Chicken: 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 

In a large oven-proof saute pan over high heat, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, to taste, and add them to the oil. Cook for 3 minutes on each side. Put the saute pan in the oven and the let the chicken finish cooking, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven to a cutting board and allow to rest, covered, for 5 to 10 minutes. 

Tomato sauce: In a medium-sized skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil. Add the chopped garlic and onions and saute until softened. Stir in the tomatoes, sambal, sugar, 2 teaspoons of salt and the rosemary. Saute over medium heat and allow the sauce to reduce and flavors to blend together, about 8 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if needed. Remove the rosemary sprig and stir in chopped parsley just before serving. 

Potatoes: Fill a large saucepan 2/3's full with cold water. Add the potatoes and a good pinch of salt and bring to a gentle boil over medium heat. Cook the potatoes until they are just tender, about 10 minutes. Once the potatoes tender, drain them and cut them into 1/4-inch slices. Heat a combination of olive oil and grapeseed oil in a large skillet until it just begins to smoke. Add the potato slices and fry until crispy on the outside and completely tender on the inside. Remove the potatoes to paper towels to drain and sprinkle with sea salt. 

Arrange potato slices in a circular layer on each serving plate. Put a thin layer of tomato sauce over the potatoes, leaving a small border. Slice the chicken breasts into serving portions and arrange on top of the potato-tomato layers. Garnish each serving with a sprig of rosemary and fresh parsley. Serve and enjoy!
