From the Test Kitchen

We’re calling on the bright, bold flavors of Greek cuisine here by serving our seared chicken (topped with a duo of olives and roasted peppers) with a classic side of oregano-roasted carrots and sautéed kale mixed with sweet raisins and tangy feta, all tossed with fresh lemon juice.

tips & techniques
Prepare & roast the carrots
1 Prepare & roast the carrots

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with foil. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Place on the sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the oregano. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a bowl, straining out the seeds. Roughly chop the peppers and olives; combine in a bowl. Add a drizzle of olive oil and stir to coat.

3 Cook the chicken

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board. 

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

In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 second to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add the raisins and 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Add the roasted carrots, cheese (crumbling before adding), and lemon juice; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
