From the Test Kitchen

For this meal, you’ll make a savory-sweet sauce of soy glaze and sour cherry spread to serve over seared chicken thighs, which balances mashed sweet potatoes finished with a generous spoonful of tangy sour cream. A simple side of roasted broccoli ties this hearty dish together.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Peel and medium dice the sweet potatoes. In a bowl, combine the cherry spread, vinegar, soy glaze, and 1/4 cup of water

Roast the broccoli:
2 Roast the broccoli:

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the broccoli florets on the foil. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Cook & mash the sweet potatoes:
3 Cook & mash the sweet potatoes:

While the broccoli roasts, add the diced sweet 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 sour cream, butter, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

4 Cook the chicken:

While the sweet 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 and cook 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

5 Finish the sauce & serve your dish:

To the pan of reserved fond, add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook on medium-high, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
