We officially have a cure for winter. This thoroughly springy dish uses ramps, also known as wild leeks, a delicious vegetable with a strong, garlicky aroma and mild, onion-like flavor. In certain parts of the Eastern U.S. and Appalachia, spring is celebrated with the arrival of the ramp. Some believe it to be a wonder tonic that bolsters health and wards off all kinds of ailments.

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Trim off and discard the ends of the snap peas then slice each pea in half on an angle. Peel and thinly slice the garlic. Trim off and discard the roots of the ramps. If any dirt is noticeable, wash the ramps again until clean; roughly chop the remaining white bottoms and green leaves. Cut the lemon into quarters and remove the seeds. Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into large pieces.

2 Cook the sweet potatoes:
Once the water is boiling, add the sweet potatoes and cook 14 to 16 minutes, or until very tender when pierced with a fork. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add half the butter (save the rest for the chicken) and a drizzle of olive oil then, using a fork, mash the sweet potatoes until smooth; season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in a warm place.

While the sweet potatoes cook, pat the chicken dry with paper towels, then season both sides with salt and pepper. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot.

Remove and discard the thyme sprigs, leaving the garlic and any drippings in the pan.
