For this comforting dish, a simple duo of honey and barbecue sauce combine to make the irresistibly sweet and tangy glaze for our seared chicken—perfectly matched by a side of mashed potatoes. A crisp slaw of brussels sprouts, apple, and sliced almonds dressed in creamy mustard sauce lends crisp, refreshing balance to each plate.

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice. Core and medium dice the apple. In a large bowl, whisk together the barbecue sauce and honey (kneading the packet before opening).

2 Cook & mash the potatoes:

Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water and cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the fromage blanc and 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to the bowl of glaze; turn to thoroughly coat.
