Chicken Dishes, Creative Food Combinations

Sage, Browned Butter & Almond Topping (for Chicken)


This little recipe is actually another great snippet from a larger Blue Apron recipe.  I don’t always have the time to re-create and shop for an elaborate meal, so I’m trying to pick out useful ideas that I can easily incorporate into my own meal creations in the future.

This chicken recipe was super simple and easy.

Basically, you start by searing chicken breasts or thighs in a pan with olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste.

Once the chicken has been thoroughly browned, you set it aside but leave the liquid and browned bits (“frond”) in the pan to create the base for the sauce.

You then melt 2 tablespoons of butter in with the frond:


Once the butter is mostly melted, you add in chopped sage leaves and almonds (Ok, I forgot to chop them before taking this picture, but ideally you should chop them into fine pieces!).


Once all three ingredients are browned and thoroughly combined, you can use as a topping on the chicken, as well as on your side dish.


Blue Apron combined this chicken with the autumn vegetable hash I described in my last post– this garnish worked well on all of it.
