From the Test Kitchen

This dish is bursting with bright flavor thanks to the savory-sweet nectarine chutney (a condiment made from fruits or vegetables cooked with vinegar, spices, and sugar) we’re spooning over simply seared chicken.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

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. Peel and medium dice the shallot. Pit and small dice the nectarine. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then thinly slice the leaves. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Combine the sliced kale and chopped garlic in a bowl.

2 Cook & mash the potatoes

Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. 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 crème fraîche. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add half the diced shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the diced nectarine, sugar, half the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), 1/2 cup of water, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 7 minutes, or until the nectarine is softened and most of the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
