Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

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. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling.

2 Cook & mash the potatoes

Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water and 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 half the crème fraîche and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. 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, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to  a cutting board. 

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

In the pan of reserved fond, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pepper pieces and sliced carrots. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped garlic and capers. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the worcestershire sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper  if desired.
