    From the Test Kitchen

    To elevate simply seared chicken, we’re topping it with a tart-and-sweet glaze that combines miso paste, honey, and tamarind paste—made from the pleasantly sour, sticky fruit of the tropical tamarind tree.

    Title
    • 2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
    • ¾ lb Potatoes
    • ¾ lb Carrots
    • 2 Scallions
    • 1 Tbsp Sweet White Miso Paste

    Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then quarter lengthwise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. In a bowl, whisk together the miso paste, honey (kneading the packet before opening), tamarind paste, and 1/4 cup of water.

    Cook & mash the potatoes
    2 Cook & mash the potatoes

    Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water and cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add half the butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Roast the carrots
    3 Roast the carrots

    Meanwhile, line a sheet pan with foil. Place the carrot pieces on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and up to half the spice blend; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Cook the chicken
    4 Cook the chicken

    Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the remaining spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons 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.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until softened. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the remaining butter until melted and combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Slice the cooked chicken crosswise. Serve the sliced chicken with the mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. Top the chicken with the finished sauce. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
