Chimichurri Steak, Potato and Salad Board

One word: Chimichurri. If you don’t make it on the reg, you should. It’s a healthy, delicious way to add flavor to almost anything. In this case, filet mignon. This, my friends is The Organic Kitchen’s Chimichurri Steak, Potato and Salad Dinner Board!

The Steak and Chimichurri:

Tender, juicy filet mignon, seared on the cooktop and finished in the oven, drizzled in fresh lime chimichurri… simply dreamy. Chimichurri originated in Argentina and is usually a simple combination of onions, garlic, olive oil, green herbs, and lemon or lime juice. Totally worth the five minutes it takes to whisk together!

The Potatoes:

Crispy roasted potatoes are our favorite. We use ‘new gold’ potatoes for this board but you could also use fingerling or even sweet potatoes. We drizzle them in olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and freshly turned black pepper and then pop them in the oven. While they roast, we prep the salad and cook the steaks. The whole meal takes about 50 minutes, from start to gloriously delicious finish!

The Salad:

Keeping it simple here: greens, apples, pecans, and your choice of feta or avocado and a light, lemon vinaigrette! What an exquisite meal!

This Meal is Adaptable!

I show this as a meal for two served on one platter, but of course you could make this incredible meal for two, four, or six and simply serve on plates!

A two-olive tapenade brings richness to smoky paprika-rubbed chicken breasts, served with one of our favorite spring vegetables, asparagus. Colorful, light and flavorful this meal will surely be a seasonal favorite! If you can't find boneless skin on chicken breasts, no worries. You'll follow the directions in bold below and cook a little longer.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Mediterranean
Keyword: chicken, chicken dinner, keto, Paleo, whole30
Servings: 2 servings
Author: Sun Basket Meal Delivery
Ingredients
  • 1-2 organic shallots
  • 10 ounces organic asparagus
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 boneless skin on chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each) BTW if you can't find boneless skin-on, no worries, just buy bone in and follow directions below
  • 1 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 organic lemon
  • 1 ounce pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1 ounce pitted Castelvetrano olives
  • 1-2 cloves organic peeled fresh garlic
  • 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh flat-leaf parsley
Instructions
Prep and cook the vegetables
  1. Peel the shallots and cut them crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. Separate the slices into rings.

    Snap off the woody ends from the asparagus.

    In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the shallots and asparagus, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning the asparagus occasionally, until the shallots start to soften and the asparagus is crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan.

    While the vegetables cook, prepare the chicken and lemon.

Prep and cook the chicken and lemon
  1. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper and the sweet smoked paprika.

  2. Juice half the lemon and set aside for the olive tapenade; cut the other half in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.

  3. In the same pan used for the asparagus, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and the lemon slices and cook until the chicken skin is well browned and the lemon slices begin to char, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer the lemon slices to the plate with the asparagus. Turn the chicken and cook until the meat is firm and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. (if using bone in skin on: after browning skin and turning skin side up, place a lid on the pan and cook for 10 minutes or until breasts are cooked through)

    While the chicken and lemon cook, prepare the olive tapenade.

Make the olive tapenade
  1. Finely chop the olives, checking for any pits.

    Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure ½ teaspoon (1 tsp).

    Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.

    In a medium bowl, stir together the olives, garlic, parsley, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon plus 1½ teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  2. When chicken is done, remove from pan, quickly add lemon and asparagus back to pan and toss for one minute to re-warm. Transfer the asparagus and lemon slices to individual plates. Top with the chicken and olive tapenade and serve.
