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.

Cook the potatoes:
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.

Cook the chicken:
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.

Start the ragoût:
4 Start the ragoût:

Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the pan of reserved fond; heat on medium-high until hot. Add the shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Add the peas; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the vinegar and ¼ cup of water (be careful, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly reduced in volume and the peas have softened. Turn off the heat.

Finish the ragoût:
5 Finish the ragoût:

To the pan, add the cooked potatoes and garlic, seasoned tomatoes, butter, and half the basil (tearing the leaves just before adding). Stir until thoroughly combined and the butter has melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6 Plate your dish:

Divide the finished ragoût between 2 dishes. Top with the cooked chicken and a drizzle of olive oil. Garnish the ragoût with the remaining basil (tearing the leaves just before adding). Enjoy!
