Double the amount of Resistant Starch in this dish by allowing the potato salad to cool to room temperature before serving.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with water. Bring water to a boil, and cook 15 minutes or until potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork. Add green beans during last minute of cooking; drain and set aside.

Step 2

While potatoes and beans cook, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, parsley, mustard, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Season to taste with black pepper. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice larger pieces in half, and add to bowl. Toss to coat, and set aside.

Step 3

Cover chicken breasts with parchment paper; pound to an even thickness using a mallet or small, heavy skillet. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and season with black pepper.

Step 4

Place flour in a shallow dish; dredge chicken in flour. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan, and cook 6–8 minutes or until chicken begins to brown; turn to brown other side. Add shallots, and cook 5–6 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken breast registers 165°. Add lemon juice and tarragon, and turn chicken until evenly coated.

Step 5

Place chicken breast on each of 4 serving plates; serve with potato salad.
