From the Test Kitchen

Tonight, we’re giving seared chicken a few Asian-inspired twists. We’re serving sides of sweet roasted root vegetables and kale cooked with flavorful miso paste—you may receive green curly, dark green lacinato, or red kale. A creamy sauce adds an irresistible layer of umami, or savory, flavor when spooned over the chicken and used as a dip for the veggies. (Chefs, your turnip may be red- or purple-skinned.)

tips & techniques
Prepare & roast the vegetables:
1 Prepare & roast the vegetables:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise; cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick pieces. Peel the turnip; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick pieces. Place the vegetables on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 17 to 19 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Prepare the remaining ingredients & cook the kale:
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & cook the kale:

While the vegetables roast, remove and discard the kale stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the kale and miso paste; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add 1/3 cup of water and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale has wilted and most of the water has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the furikake; season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in a warm place. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

Add the seasoned chicken, skin side down; cook, loosely covering the pan with aluminum foil, 4 to 6 minutes on the first side, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board.
