Ingredients

  • 1 lb small potatoes (white, red or a combination), scrubbed and halved
  • 4 6-oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp each sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped shallots
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 cup 100% pomegranate (TRY: Lakewood Organic Pure Pomegranate Juice)
  • 2 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced

Preparation

  1. Fill a large pot with 1 inch of water and fit with a steamer basket. Place potatoes in steamer basket and bring water to a boil. Cover and cook until potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet or sauté pan (not nonstick), heat oil on medium. Add chicken and cook for 6 minutes per side or until cooked through, cooking in batches if necessary. Transfer chicken to serving plates and let rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place same skillet on medium-high heat. Add shallots and rosemary and cook, stirring occasionally, until shallots are tender, about 1 minute. Stir in blackberries and pomegranate juice, deglazing pan by scraping up any browned bits from bottom of skillet with a heatproof spoon or spatula. Cook until liquid is reduced to a thin layer, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Top chicken with berry mixture and arrange potatoes alongside, dividing evenly. Sprinkle potatoes with scallions and serve.
