From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s dinner highlights two fantastic late-spring ingredients: sugar snap peas and tender summer squash. (You may receive grey zucchini, green zucchini, or yellow summer squash.) We’re finishing our sautéed vegetables and seared chicken in a simple, flavorful pan sauce of Dijon mustard, butter, and lemon. On the side, we’re mashing potatoes (boiled with whole garlic for an aromatic touch) with fromage blanc, a creamy fresh cheese.

Cook 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. Set aside in a warm place.
