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.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Large dice the potatoes. Separate the kale stems and leaves; discard the stems and roughly chop the leaves. Peel, core and medium dice the apple. Peel and medium dice the onion. Pick the tarragon leaves off the stems; discard the stems.

Brown the potatoes:
2 Brown the potatoes:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 7 to 9 minutes, or until browned.

Make the hash:
3 Make the hash:

Add the onion to the pan of browned potatoes; reduce the heat to medium. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onion has softened slightly. Add the kale, apple and 2 tablespoons of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the kale has wilted. Stir in the almonds, mustard and 2 tablespoons of water. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until well combined. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
