This simple, seasonal recipe teams up seared chicken and brown rice, loaded with late-summer vegetables. We’re tossing the grains with toasty brown butter—simply butter heated in a pan for a couple of minutes—and a quick sauté of sweet corn. Juicy tomatoes (yours may be red or yellow) and basil seeds marinated in vinegar top off the rice with pops of delicious brightness. (Chefs, your basil seeds will turn white when marinated!)
