    From the Test Kitchen

    Here, the bold flavor and crunchy texture of herby za'atar creates a delightful crust on our seared chicken breasts—the perfect complement to a rich, sweet mix of butter and honey dolloped on top. We’re pairing it with two simple, delicious sides of smooth mashed potatoes and sautéed zucchini and tomatoes.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Remove the honey and butter from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash each clove once. Cut the zucchini into 1/2-inch-thick rounds. Halve the tomatoes.

    Cook & mash the potatoes
    2 Cook & mash the potatoes

    Add the diced potatoes and smashed garlic cloves to the pot of boiling water and cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the crème fraîche and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Cook the fish
    3 Cook the fish

    Meanwhile, pat the fish dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the za'atar to coat (reserving a pinch for serving). In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skin side down. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    *An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
