Sear Chicken: Large pan heat large drizzle of olive oil over med-high heat. Add chicken and cook until it browns, 2-3min. (I usually flip every 2min and cooked chicken for 6-8min. I like to make sure it’s done or close too depend on the next step.) Remove to a plate.

Braise Chicken: Stir diced tomatoes, half the chicken demi-glace, and 1/4 cup water into pan. Scrape up any bits on bottom. Bring to a simmer, med-high heat. Return chicken to pan and toss to cover in sauce. Simmer 4-5min until chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat and squeeze a little lemon juice into pan.
