From the Test Kitchen

To contrast the bold, smoky spices on our seared chicken, we’re serving it with a side of sweet corn and topping them both with an irresistibly rich honey butter, which slowly melts onto the corn kernels and lightly charred exterior of our chicken. It’s all complete with our vibrant slaw, which gets exciting texture from pickled mustard seeds.

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), combine the mustard seeds, sugar, vinegar, and ¼ cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the sugar has dissolved. Transfer to the bowl of diced cabbage and cucumber; stir to combine.

While the slaw marinates, 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 the same pan, heat 1 teaspoon 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. Turn off the heat.
