Easy Chicken Breasts Diane with Broccoli and Potato Frittata

Posted 2017-10-08 by finyfollow

I always used to like Steak Diane many years ago when I was young and ate red meat!

I have tried a similar recipe with chicken, and made a frittata to go with this.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4

For the frittata
2 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
¾ cup potatoes cut into small cubes
1 shallot, chopped
3 large eggs
¼ cup water
¼ tsp salt
Dash of pepper
1¼ cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed
½ cup cheese, grated

For the chicken
About 650 g breasts or 3 large ones
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp chives, chopped
Juice of ½ a lime
2 tbsp brandy
3 tbsp fresh parsley
2 tsp Dijon mustard
¼ cup chicken soup

For the frittata
  • Put the bacon pieces into a frypan and cook over a medium to high heat for about 5 minutes, or till they are browning.

  • Add the onions and potatoes, and cover.

  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender - about 6 minutes.

  • Beat the eggs, the water, and some salt and pepper.
  • If you want all of the vegetables to be fully covered, add an extra egg

  • Stir in the broccoli and ¾ of the cheese. Cover once again.

  • Cook until it is set - about 7 minutes.

  • Remove it from the heat and sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and cover.

  • Let it stand until the cheese melts, and then slice and serve.

  • Also nice to eat cold and/or for lunch boxes, and can be easily reheated.

  • For the chicken
  • Slice the thick breasts into thinner ones, and put between Glad Wrap.

  • Beat with a mallet or meat cleaver until they become larger and thinner, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  • Heat 1 tbsp each of the oil and butter in a large frypan.

  • Cook the chicken over a high heat for a few minutes on each side - do NOT overcook or they will dry out.

  • Transfer to a warm plate or put in a very low oven.

  • To the frypan, add the chives, lime, brandy, parsley and mustard and whisk constantly for about 15 seconds.

  • Mix in the soup, and stir until the sauce is smooth.
  • This is actually the sauce a day later before I reheated it

  • Mix in the remaining butter and oil, and pour the sauce over the chicken.

  • This is also suitable to reheat though do not cook the chicken for long.
