#CookClub recipe No. 12: Sauteed Chicken With Sage Browned Butter

It seems like there's no end to our quest for chicken recipes. It's really our go-to protein.

But boneless, skinless breasts can be tasteless, despite their promise of being low-fat. Something must be done to elevate them past cardboard status.

#CookClub recipe No. 12 does just that. Sauteed Chicken With Sage Browned Butter is a little trendy (the browned butter) and a whole lot of easy. You can either pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts into thin, quick-cooking pieces or buy cutlets, which should still be pounded a bit. It's important that the pieces are thin enough to cook at 4 minutes per side or you might char the outside, leaving burned bits in the pan that you don't want incorporated into your sauce.

Sprigs of fresh sage cook in the browning butter, once the chicken is done. The finished product has a bit of a Thanksgiving accent, which I love. Here's another plus: The dish is done in less than 15 minutes. Amazing.

When I make it again, I might double up the butter sauce so that there's plenty to drape over the chicken.

This week, we're offering a #CookClub side dish, Broccolini With Almonds. The most difficult thing about this dish, other than finding broccolini, is toasting the almonds. I used rapini instead, which is peppery. A green vegetable looks lovely alongside the bronzed chicken.

I am eager to see how you'll make these recipes your own.

Healthful eating is just a one-pan fish dish away

By Ellie KriegerI recoil at the repentant food chatter that crops up this time of year, dominated by words such as "cleanse" and "detox," which, from what I can tell, are just modern code for "extreme diet." But part of cultivating a healthy, balanc...
