Chicken in an Herb Garden

 

Serve 4

Ingredients

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

Salt and pepper

2 1/2 cups white wine vinegar

1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup finely chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as parsley, tarragon, basil, thyme, rosemary,sage and mint.

Crusty bread, for serving

Directions

1-  Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Tightly roll them up lengthwise and secure with toothpicks at 1 inch intervals.

2- In a large saucepan, combine the vinegar, 3/4 cup of water and a pinch of salt and bring to a  gentle simmer. Add the chicken and cook over low heat until just white throughout, about 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a work surface and let cool slightly. Discard the toothpicks. Slice the chicken crosswise into 1-inch-thick rounds.

3- In a large bowl, whisk the olive oil with the mixed herbs and season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken, turning to coat evenly in the herb oil. Let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature and serve with crusty bread.
