From the Test Kitchen

Ragoût is a rustic French stew that’s perfect for showcasing medleys of seasonal vegetables. For tonight’s lighter take, we’re starting with a base of English peas and shallot—cooked with a bit of water and tangy verjus until tender—then folding in juicy cherry tomatoes and warm potatoes for sweet flavor and hearty texture. It all comes together with a bit of butter and fresh basil, making a simple, sophisticated bed for seared chicken.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Heat a small saucepan of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, gently smash each clove to flatten. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Shell the peas. Halve the tomatoes and place in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; discard the stems.

2 Cook the potatoes:

Add the potatoes and garlic to the saucepan of boiling water. Cook 9 to 11 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain thoroughly and set aside in a warm place.

3 Cook the chicken:

While the potatoes and garlic cook, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and cook 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. Loosely cover the cooked chicken with aluminum foil and set aside in a warm place.
