    From the Test Kitchen

    To accompany our irresistibly spicy-sweet glazed pork, we’re whipping up a vibrant side of kale and persimmon sautéed with just a touch of garlic and olive oil. An additional side of smooth mashed potatoes completes the dish on a hearty note and helps to soak up the flavorful glaze.

    tips & techniques

    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

    Remove the honey 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 and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Core and medium dice the persimmon. In a bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), demi-glace, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the hot sauce as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

    Cook & mash the potatoes
    2 Cook & mash the potatoes

    Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. 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 half the butter and a drizzle of olive oil. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    3 Cook the kale & persimmon

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds 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 diced persimmon and 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    4 Cook the chicken & serve your dish

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 5 minutes. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and remaining butter. Cook, frequently spooning the glaze over the chicken, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the chicken is coated and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. Serve the cooked chicken (including any glaze from the pan) with the mashed potatoes and cooked kale and persimmon. Enjoy! 

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