“Welcome to Family Feood. The first category is: Foods that go together. Survey says: peanut butter and chocolate. Strawberries and whipped cream. Chicken and pears.” Pears are in season, so right now they’re extra cheap and super delicious. Meat with fruit is a great combination but I can’t recall ever making a dinner with pears. But this recipe was too intriguing not to try it. I was not disappointed and neither was my wife. The fact that it’s now posted on Peanut Butter Boy means we are definitely making it again. I don’t know what to serve with it because what more could you want? I just served it with roasted mushrooms because my roasted mushrooms are kicka$$! I’ll post my recipe for those soon.


3 chicken breasts
1 medium shallot, chopped
2 large pears, cored, and sliced
1/4 cup chicken broth
4 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup raisins
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup crushed walnuts
olive oil
garlic salt
freshly ground black pepper


1. Filet the chicken breasts in half such that each chicken breast becomes two thin-sliced breasts. Season with garlic salt and pepper. Add a splash of olive oil to a skillet and preheat over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken and sear on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate.

2. To the same pan, add the shallot and saute over medium-high heat for 2 minutes or until soft. Lower the heat to medium and add the pears. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes, until the pears are soft and golden brown. Meanwhile, combine the chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add the sauce to the pan, along with the raisins, and simmer until the sauce thickens – about 5 minutes. Slowly add more chicken broth if sauce becomes too thick.

3. Add the chicken to the pan and reduce heat to medium-low to reach a gentle simmer. Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes until flavors have combined and chicken is cooked through.

4. Serve with crushed walnuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
