    From the Test Kitchen

    To bring together seared chicken and a hearty bed of kale and sweet potato, we’re topping it all with an irresistibly rich and creamy dressing of tahini, soy sauce, mayo, fresh lemon juice, and punchy garlic paste.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the sweet potato. Peel 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop 1 clove. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the remaining clove into a paste. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a bowl, whisk together the tahini, mayonnaise, soy sauce, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, 2 teaspoons of water, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Roast the sweet potato
    2 Roast the sweet potato

    Place the diced sweet potato on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 19 to 21 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Cook the chicken
    3 Cook the chicken

    Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    Cook the kale
    4 Cook the kale

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and the juice of the remaining lemon wedges. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to a large bowl.
