From the Test Kitchen

Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. For this comforting dish, we’re coating chicken in layers of dijonnaise and a savory topping made with airy panko breadcrumbs and melty fontina cheese before baking, which helps keep the chicken juicy as it cooks. Sides of herby roasted potatoes and a salad of arugula tossed with fresh tomatoes (marinated in balsamic vinegar for robust depth of flavor) round out the dish.

Prepare & roast the potatoes
1 Prepare & roast the potatoes

Remove the honey from the refrigerator from to bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Large dice the potatoes. Place in a large baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the Italian seasoning. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 12 minutes, or until slightly tender when pierced with a fork. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

2 Marinate the tomatoes & make the dressing

Meanwhile, halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl. Add the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. In a separate, large bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening) and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

Coat & roast the chicken
3 Coat & roast the chicken

Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Melt the butter in a medium bowl in the microwave (or melt in a pot on the stove, then transfer to a medium bowl). Add the breadcrumbs, garlic paste, and fontina. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Carefully place on top of the partially roasted potatoes. Evenly spread or brush the dijonnaise onto the seasoned chicken, then top with the cheesy breadcrumbs (pressing gently to adhere). Tightly cover the baking dish with foil. Roast 12 minutes. Carefully remove the foil. Continue to roast 10 to 12 minutes, or until the topping is browned, the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, and the chicken is cooked through.* Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes before serving. 

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.

4 Make the salad & serve your dish

Just before serving, to the bowl of dressing, add the arugula, parmesan, and marinated tomatoes (including any liquid); season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the roasted chicken and potatoes with the salad on the side. Enjoy!
