From the Test Kitchen

The star of this dish is our togarashi seasoning—a vibrant blend that highlights paprika, poppy seeds, dried orange peel, and more—which lends bold flavor to the medley of zucchini, carrots, and cabbage we’re serving underneath juicy seared chicken. We’re bringing it all together with a bright, savory mix of citrusy ponzu and creamy ranch dressing.

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; medium dice the leaves. Place in a large bowl; add half the vinegar and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a separate bowl; add the remaining vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Medium dice the zucchini. Peel the carrots. Halve lengthwise; cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Peel and finely chop the ginger. In a bowl, combine the ponzu sauce and ranch dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 5 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. 

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F
