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.

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.
