  • 4 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups black cherries, pitted and halved
  • 1 small shallot, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 oz burrata (at room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves


  • Use a meat mallet or a rolling pin to pound chicken breasts flat to 1/2-in thickness. Pat chicken breasts dry with paper towels and season on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter and olive oil in a 9-inch cast iron skillet or stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan and sear 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
  • Add cherries and shallot to pan and saute in pan drippings over medium-high heat 3-4 minutes until just tender and juicy. Transfer cherries to a plate and set aside.
  • Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Add garlic and saute 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add wine, chicken stock, and lemon juice and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and allow sauce to simmer 5-10 minutes until slightly reduced.
  • Nestle chicken and cherries back into sauce and allow to simmer over medium-low heat an additional 5-10 minutes until chicken registers 165F.
  • Season chicken with additional salt and pepper to taste. Break burrata open over chicken and cherries and garnish top with fresh oregano. Serve chicken immediately and enjoy!
