Here, you'll elevate simply seared chicken by topping it with a delicately fruity pan sauce featuring fresh blueberries, balsamic vinegar, and more. A hearty side of roasted potatoes and carrots finished with garlic and parmesan cheese rounds out the dish.

1 Prepare & roast the vegetables

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with foil. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Place the diced potatoes and carrot pieces on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 18 to 22 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, peel 1 clove of garlic. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a large bowl, combine half the cheese and as much of the garlic paste as you'd like. In a separate bowl, combine the blueberries, vinegar, worcestershire sauce, sugar, and 1 tablespoon of water.

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.
