    From the Test Kitchen

    This simple dish gets a sophisticated lift from a flavorful pan sauce made with whole grain dijon, brown sugar, and demi-glace (simply reduced chicken stock), which lends rich, complex flavor to our seared chicken.

    Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water and 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 buttermilk and 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the green beans; 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, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the water has cooked off. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened.

Add the seasoned chicken and 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.
