    From the Test Kitchen

    The star of this dish is the rich, vibrant pan sauce that we're spooning over perfectly seared chicken breasts, which features miso paste, mustard, capers, marinated artichoke hearts, and more for a medley of flavors in every bite. Sides of garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed asparagus complete the meal on a hearty note.

    1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Snap off and discard the tough, woody stem ends of the asparagus; halve crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the artichokes. In a bowl, whisk together the demi-glace, miso paste, mustard, sugar, and 1/4 cup of water.

    2 Cook & mash the potatoes

    Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the garlic-herb butter and mascarpone. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the halved asparagus; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and the asparagus is softened. Transfer to a bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 9 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.
