From the Test Kitchen

Chefs, we’re celebrating the aromatic flavors of Greek cooking with tonight’s dish.Buttery Castelvetrano olives, sweet prunes and fresh oregano form the base of a bright sauce perfect for our pan-seared chicken (and simple roasted potatoes on the side). A salad of baby greens topped off with crunchy almonds rounds it all out with peppery notes. (Depending on what's best near you, your baby greens may be arugula or kale.)
