From the Test Kitchen

To celebrate the vibrant flavors of summer, we’re making a tomato pan sauce to top simply seared chicken by cooking fresh tomatoes with butter and garlic in the chicken’s fond. Classic potato salad is elevated by bites of pickled peppers, crunchy celery, and hard-boiled eggs, whose yolks provide even more rich, savory flavor.

Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, carefully add the eggs to the pot of water. Cook 9 minutes. Leaving the pot of water boiling, using a slotted spoon or tongs, carefully transfer the eggs to a strainer. Rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, peel the cooked eggs. Transfer to a cutting board, then small dice.
