Pan-Seared Chicken Breast with [Leftover] Grilled Vegetables
and green onion aioli
With delicious grilled vegetables leftover from Tuesday's meal, tonight's flavorful seared chicken is a breeze to make. Rich green onion aioli brings the entire dish together.
- Mayonnaise, paleo-friendly - 1/3 cup
- Charred Green Onion Vinaigrette (leftover from Tuesday) - 1 1/2 Tbsp
- Chicken breasts, boneless and skinless - 1 1/2 lbs
- Paprika - 1 1/2 tsp
- Salt - 3/4 tsp
- Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
- Oil, cooking - 2 Tbsp
- Grilled Vegetables (leftover from Tuesday) - ~3 cups
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat with oil. Add chicken and sear on both sides until golden brown and cooked through (165F / 74C degrees), 6 to 10 minutes total. If all of the chicken won't fit in the pan at once, do this in batches. Add some more oil to the pan if it starts to look dry.
Transfer chicken to a cutting board to rest for a few minutes.
Reheat leftover vegetables in the microwave.
Serve chicken over leftover vegetables with green onion aioli spooned over top. Enjoy!
