From the Test Kitchen

This summer, we’re bringing you 12 weeks of recipes designed with busy schedules and flexibility in mind. The easy sauce for our Spanish-spiced chicken calls on the sweet flavor of fig, thanks to a specialty fruit spread we’re mixing with just a touch of mayo––a perfect match for our creamy, zesty potato salad.
