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.

3 Cook the pasta:

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!
