If you’ve never had Mediterranean grilled chicken breast, you’re in for a treat! This Spanish-style recipe shows you how to blend your own homemade romesco sauce for a meal that tastes like you just finished a food tour of Catalonia.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. Giant Eagle Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 3-4 leeks
  • 1 head frisee
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ¾ tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. smoked paprika, divided
  • ½ cup + 4 tsp. Market District extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • ⅛ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Giant Eagle Italian-style tomato paste
  • ½ cup Giant Eagle roasted red peppers
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup Blue Diamond almonds - lightly salted, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. Colavita aged red wine vinegar, divided

Directions:

  Prep Time: 20 min. • Cook Time: 35 min.

Preheat oven to 450°F. Heat grill. Slice potatoes ¼-inch thick. Trim the leeks, split lengthwise and rinse. Trim the root from the frisee, then wash and dry the leaves. Season the chicken breasts with ¼ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of smoked paprika.

Toss the sliced potatoes with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer on a foil-lined or non-stick sheet pan. Place in oven and roast until tender, about 20 minutes.

Combine ¼ teaspoon salt, the tomato paste, roasted peppers, garlic, remaining smoked paprika, half the almonds, and the red wine vinegar (reserve 1 teaspoon to dress the salad later) in the jar of a blender and blend until smooth. Slowly drizzle in ½ cup extra virgin olive oil.

Grill the chicken breasts over medium-high heat for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.* Grill the leeks until tender.

Toss the potatoes with the frisee, remaining almonds, 1 teaspoon of red wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.

Serve the grilled chicken breast with the potato salad, romesco sauce, and grilled leeks.

*For food safety, , cook chicken to an internal temperature of 165°F.
