    From the Test Kitchen

    To top simply seared chicken, we’re making a vibrant pan sauce with briny capers and fresh tomatoes, which we crush with a spoon as they cook to release their sweet natural juices. It’s perfect for serving atop a hearty bed of farro and sautéed zucchini, finished with a touch of smooth mascarpone and parmesan cheese.
