From the Test Kitchen

To contrast the bold, Southern-style spices on our seared chicken, we're topping it with a creamy, tangy mix of pickle relish and mayo, then serving it alongside sweet raisin-studded rice.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Quarter lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic.

Cook the rice
2 Cook the rice

In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in the raisins. Cover to keep warm.

Cook the chicken
3 Cook the chicken

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

4 Cook the vegetables

In the pan of reserved fond, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the snow peas and sliced pepper; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until most of the water has cooked off. Add the chopped garlic and as much of the hot sauce as you'd like, depending on how spicy yo'd like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until softened and combined. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
