    Hot Honey Chicken with Mashed Potatoes & Carrots
    Title
    • 2 Flank Steaks
    • 2 tsps Honey
    • 1 oz Salted Butter
    • ¾ lb Potatoes
    • ¾ lb Carrots
    • 1 Tbsp Weeknight Hero Spice Blend (Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Smoked Paprika & Whole Dried Parsley)
    • 2 Scallions
    • ¼ cup Sour Cream
    • 1 Tbsp Hot Sauce
    Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. 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. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then quarter lengthwise. In a bowl, combine the honey, 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.

    Make the mashed potatoes
    2 Make the mashed potatoes

    Add the diced potatoes 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 sour cream and sliced white bottoms of the scallions. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

    Roast the carrots
    3 Roast the carrots

    Meanwhile, place the carrot pieces on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    4 Cook the steak

    Pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the remaining spice blend. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium- rare (125°F), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board; let rest at least 5 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for steak. Cook the steaks an additional 2 to 3 minutes to achieve this.

    Finish the sauce
    5 Finish the sauce

    Add the sauce to the pan of reserved fond (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly and scraping up any fond, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Turn off the heat. Stir in the butter until melted and combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steaks with the mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. Top the steaks with the finished sauce. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
