Happy Sunday and happy spring! I love joining my friends Mary Ann and Cindy for Sunday favorites. We talk at least once a week and favorites always find their way into the conversation and yet each week they both surprise and inspire me. Thank you so much for your kind and generous comment about these posts. It means the world to us! You are going to love this one-pot rustic shallot chicken recipe.
1. We love a one-pot meal like this Rustic Shallot Chicken
This is a one-pot dish that my husband makes and what we love about it is that we can cook once and eat for three meals. It serves six, or if you are empty nesters like us, serves two, for three meals. If you love shallots, you will love this dish!Print
Rustic Shallot Chicken
This is a one-pot dish that’s delicious and the leftovers are great too!
- Prep Time: 15
- Cook Time: 30-40
- Total Time: 45-55
- Yield: 6 1x
- 4 chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into two pieces
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 12 to 15 whole medium shallots, peeled
- 2 cups white wine
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
- Basil chiffonade
- Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Sprinkle the flour, salt, and pepper over the chicken.
- Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. When the butter foams, cook the chicken, Set aside.
- Add the whole shallots to the pot and sauté them until begin to soften and caramelize, about 10 to 12 minutes. Add the wine to deglaze the pot, and then add the mustard. Add the chicken back to the pot, cover, turn the heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes.
- Remove the lid, and allow the sauce to reduce and thicken, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Then add the tomatoes to the pot, stir lightly to combine and serve immediately
This is based on a recipe from The New York Times Cooking. The original recipe calls for chicken thighs and we’ve made it that way as well, but we typically prefer to use boneless chicken breasts.

2. The Views from the Brooklyn Bridge are stunning on a windy day in March
Last Sunday we went for a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was windy, but the views were amazing and it was so worth dealing with a little cold. We realized that it was the one-year mark for the pandemic in New York. Later that night on the news we watched the tribute on the bridge showing the faces of New Yorkers that lost their lives to Covid. We had no idea that they were setting up for the tribute as we walked over the bridge. Can you believe it has been a year?
3. An Amazon Find for around $14
My friend Caitlin has a great eye and so when she let me share her kitchen not long ago, I took notes on every detail. Like this cute stoneware pitcher, she found on Amazon. It’s perfect for a small vase or on open shelving like in Caitlin’s kitchen. You can see it in this post!
4. We love this DIY Coffee Table from Made by Carli
Carli describes this as her perfectly imperfect coffee table and I would have to agree. I love it this way and I love it equally the way she showed it before she stained it dark. Two totally different looks, both equally beautiful. The unstained, natural table has a very Jenni Kayne look to it.
5. All-Natural Scent Booster
Have you made the switch to fragrance-free laundry detergent? I use Thieves laundry soap because I love knowing that it’s free of harmful chemicals. It’s safe for me, my family, and the environment. My friend Sheri Silver made this all-natural scent booster and it really is the best using only a few ingredients. You can get the recipe right here. You’ll love it if you like really nice smelling laundry, but without the yucky chemicals.
