From the Test Kitchen

This summer, we’re bringing you 12 weeks of recipes designed with busy schedules and flexibility in mind. Here, classic pasta salad gets a robust upgrade from our savory tomato chutney, whose irresistibly tangy, sweet, and spicy flavor is classic in Indian cuisine. It’s the perfect accompaniment to seared chicken glazed with a simple duo of vinegar and brown sugar.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the zucchini. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Quarter lengthwise, then halve crosswise. In a large bowl, combine the crème fraîche and tomato chutney. To make the glaze, in a bowl, combine the sugar, vinegar, and 1/4 cup of water

Cook & dress the vegetables:
2 Cook & dress the vegetables:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced zucchini in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Add the prepared peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to the bowl of creamy chutney; stir to coat. Wipe out the pan.

While the vegetables cook, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, 13 to 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly. 

Cook & glaze the chicken:
4 Cook & glaze the chicken:

While the pasta cooks, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 4 minutes. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, frequently spooning the glaze over the chicken, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the chicken is coated and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board. 

* An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F for chicken.

When ready to serve, stir 2 tablespoons of hot water into the pasta to loosen (if necessary, gradually add up to 2 more tablespoons of hot water to ensure the pasta is thoroughly coated). Serve as directed. Enjoy!
