FavoriteLoadingAdd to My Recipe Book

Recipe Ingredients

  • 450g carrots, thinly sliced at an angle
  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil salt and pepper
  • 1 cup fresh white breadcrumbs or panko
  • 570g thinly sliced skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup plus 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 140g baby rocket
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, torn

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 230°C. On a baking tray, toss carrots with oil and ⅛ teaspoon each salt and freshly ground black pepper. Roast for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp but tender. Transfer carrots to a large bowl to cool.
  2. While carrots cook, place breadcrumbs on a large plate. In a medium bowl, toss chicken with mustard and ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper until well coated. Coat chicken with breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere. Arrange chicken on a rack fitted into the same baking tray. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until juices run clear when pierced with tip of knife.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small pot, heat ½ cup vinegar and ⅛ teaspoon each salt and freshly ground black pepper to boiling on high; reduce heat to simmer for 8 to 12 minutes or until syrupy.
  4. To the same bowl as carrots, add the rocket, basil and remaining tablespoon of vinegar, tossing to mix. Serve salad with chicken and balsamic glaze.
