  • 12 oz Chicken Breast Filet, with skin
  • 0 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 6 oz Brown Mushrooms (Crimini Italian)
  • 1 stalk large (11"-12" long) Celery
  • 1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
  • 2 clove Garlic
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 1 tbsp Reserva Sherry Vinegar
  • 0 1/4 cup Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 8 oz Asparagus
  • 0 1/4 oz Parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 475°.
  2. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a medium skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil and cook chicken skin side down for 6-8 minutes until browned. Place chicken skin side up on a sheet pan and roast in the oven for 20 minutes.
  3. While the chicken is in the oven, slice mushrooms, dice celery, thinly slice onions, and mince garlic.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet used to brown the chicken. Heat over medium-high, add mushrooms and sauté while stirring 5 minutes. Add remaining oil (2 teaspoons) to the pan, along with celery, onion, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and cook another 5 minutes, until onions are softened.
  5. After the chicken has roasted for 20 minutes, add the asparagus to the sheet pan and roast for another 5 minutes.
  6. Add the asparagus, thyme, sherry vinegar, and chicken broth to the skillet with the mushrooms. Top with the chicken breasts, skin side up, and cook another 2 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender-crisp and chicken is cooked through. Serve topped with parsley.
