    From the Test Kitchen

    Our new Ready to Cook recipes are the latest addition to our Fast & Easy menu. Featuring pre-chopped ingredients and a recyclable baking tin, these recipes make prep and cleaning a breeze. Just assemble, bake, and enjoy! Here, chicken thighs get deep, bold flavor from a coating of vibrant togarashi—a staple of Japanese cuisine that highlights poppy seeds, dried orange peel, and more. You'll serve the chicken with aromatic white rice, tender snow peas, and a creamy soy and sambal sauce.

    • 1 cup Long Grain White Rice
    • ⅓ cup East Asian-Style Sautéed Aromatics

    Prepare the ingredients & make the base
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the base

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the snow peas; if desired, remove the tough strings. Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. Between the two trays, evenly divide the rice and sautéed aromatics. Add 1 cup of water to each tray. Season with salt and pepper; stir to thoroughly combine.

    Add the chicken & snow peas
    2 Add the chicken & snow peas

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the togarashi. Arrange the seasoned chicken in an even layer on top of the prepared base. Tightly cover with foil and bake 25 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully remove and reserve the foil. Add the snow peas in an even layer on top of the partially cooked base. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover the trays with the reserved foil and bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the chicken is cooked through.* Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the soy glaze, mayonnaise, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Serve the baked trays drizzled with the sauce. Garnish with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
