From the Test Kitchen

“Meat and potatoes” is such a classic a dish that it has even inspired an expression, referring to something ordinary, yet essential. Well, we say meat and potatoes doen’t have to be ordinary—in fact, it can be incredibly gourmet. We’re proving it with succulent chicken served atop a hash of purple potatoes and lacinato kale, two strikingly gorgeous and delicious vegetables. Fresh tarragon and a savory pan sauce complete this meal, an exceptional dinner for any occasion.
