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.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel the garlic. Halve the squash lengthwise; cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick pieces. Snap off and discard the stem end of each snap pea; pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of the pod. Quarter and deseed the lemon.

Cook & mash the potatoes:
2 Cook & mash the potatoes:

Add the potatoes and garlic to the pot of boiling water. Cook 14 to 16 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the fromage blanc and a drizzle of olive oil. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in a warm place.

3 Cook the chicken:

While the potatoes cook, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken, skin side down. 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. Reserving about 1 tablespoon of oil in the pan, carefully drain off and discard any excess oil.

Cook the vegetables:
4 Cook the vegetables:

Add the squash and snap peas to the pan of reserved fond; season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Stir in the juice of 2 lemon wedges.
