    From the Test Kitchen

    The star of this bold Indian dish is mango chutney—a beloved condiment that combines the sweet fruit with ginger, lemon juice, garam masala, and more—whose brightness perfectly complements the warming vadouvan curry powder on our seared chicken.

    tips & techniques
    Make the mustard seed rice
    1 Make the mustard seed rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any small stones or impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a small pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mustard seeds and rice. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly toasted (be careful, as the mustard seeds may pop as they toast). Add a big pinch of salt and cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the green beans; cut off and discard the stem ends. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a bowl, combine the mango chutney and 1/4 cup of water

    Cook & finish the green beans
    3 Cook & finish the green beans

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the prepared green beans in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the green beans are softened and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like; stir to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the curry powder to coat (you may have extra). In the same pan, heat a drizzle 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.

    To the pan of reserved fond, add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat and stir in the crème fraîche until combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Slice the cooked chicken crosswise. Serve the sliced chicken with the mustard seed rice and finished green beans. Top the chicken with the finished sauce. Enjoy!
