Steve Leon with the Cheesecake Factory stops by Good Day to make Tuscan chicken. It's grilled chicken breast with tomatoes, artichokes, capers, fresh basil and balsamic vinaigrette served over fresh vegetables and farro.
3 ea. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (3 oz. ea.), slightly pounded
1/2 tsp. Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1 Tbl. French Mustard Vinaigrette*
4 oz. Grape Tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 oz. Oven Roasted Roma Tomatoes**
1/2 oz. Artichoke Hearts, cut in half
1/2 tsp. Capers, drained, rinsed
1 oz. Balsamic Vinaigrette*
1/8 tsp. Salt
1/16 tsp. Black Pepper
1 oz. Farro, cooked
6 ea. Asparagus Spears, steamed
1/2 Tbl. Basil Infused Olive Oil*
Season the chicken (both sides) with kosher salt, and ground black pepper.
Place the chicken onto a clean, hot and lightly oiled “griddle pan” set over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until half done. Flip the chicken over and baste with the French Mustard Vinaigrette and cook until the chicken is done.
Place the oven roasted tomatoes, artichoke hearts, grape tomatoes, and capers into a sauté pan set over medium-high heat. Pour the Balsamic Vinaigrette into the pan and season with salt and black pepper. Cook the ingredients for 20-30 seconds.
Mound the cooked farro onto the center of a serving dish. Place the steamed asparagus spears onto the serving plate around the farro.
Set the chicken breasts onto the serving plate, on top of the farro, and partially covering some of the asparagus. Sprinkle the warm tomato and artichoke mixture over the chicken. Drizzle the basil infused oil over the chicken and tomatoes.
