From the Test Kitchen

This easy take on deviled chicken (ours gets its sharp, zesty flavor from mustard and spices like paprika and cumin) is served alongside a verdant duo of blistered shishito peppers and tender green beans. A hearty side of rice tossed with our romesco sauce is perfect for soaking up the creamy lemon sauce spooned over the chicken just before serving.

  • 4 Tbsps Butter
  • 2 Tbsps Dijon Mustard
  • 1¼ cups Panko Breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup Grated Romano Cheese

Prepare & coat the chicken:
1 Prepare & coat the chicken:

Arrange two oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Line two sheet pans with foil. In a medium pot, heat the butter on medium until melted (or melt in a bowl in the microwave). Transfer to a large bowl. Whisk in the spice blend and mustard until thoroughly combined; season with salt and pepper. On a large plate, combine the breadcrumbs and cheese; season with salt and pepper. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Working one piece at a time, thoroughly coat the seasoned chicken in the spiced mustard butter (letting the excess drip off), then in the seasoned breadcrumbs (pressing to adhere). Transfer to one sheet pan; arrange in an even layer. 

Roast the chicken:
2 Roast the chicken:

Drizzle the coated chicken with olive oil. Place on the upper oven rack. Roast 19 to 21 minutes, or until the breadcrumbs are browned and the chicken is cooked through.* Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, in the same pot used to melt the butter, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 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 romesco sauce. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Prepare & roast the vegetables:
4 Prepare & roast the vegetables:

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the green beans. Transfer to the remaining sheet pan; add the peppers.

Roast 12 to 14 minutes, or until the peppers are slightly blistered and the vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.
