Tonight’s recipe highlights an assortment of Eastern European flavors. Our pan-seared chicken gets its smoky, savory crust from a rub of paprika, white pepper, celery seeds and more. We’re serving the chicken with sides of crisp red cabbage and creamy potatoes—which get their irresistible consistency from a cooling sour cream sauce. To round it all out in classic fashion, we’re using plenty of fresh, floral dill.
