I love to cook chicken because it is so light with the skin removed. With sweet sugar snap peas, scented with mint and thyme, you can make a very quick dinner that is absolutely fabulous.

    Sesame Snap Pea-Chicken Salad

    David Malosh for The New York Times. Food Stylist: Simon Andrews.

    This simple salad features crisp-tender sugar snap peas, delicate shredded chicken and creamy sesame dressing. The cooking methods are important here: Blanching the peas, then shocking them in ice water ensures that they retain crunch and color, while gently poaching the boneless chicken breast and plunging it into an ice water bath means it stays moist. The tangy dressing, which is a nod to the highly addictive Japanese-style goma dressing, is made with earthy roasted sesame seeds and mayonnaise it finds its way to the craggy edges of the shredded chicken. Try to shred the meat the same size as the sliced peas for the best texture. This salad is great to serve immediately, and even better after spending at least an hour in the refrigerator.

    Chicken Sauté with Sugar Snaps and Asparagus

    Sugar snap peas and asparagus, which are at the peak of their season in spring, add crisp contrast to tender chicken in this easy weeknight dinner for two. Consider this recipe a basic template for creating a quick sauté. It lends itself to endless variations, so you can use whatever’s on hand in your refrigerator. Tarragon or basil would make tasty substitutes for the thyme (if using tarragon, use a little less). Fresh peas are a good alternative to the sugar snap peas and zucchini can replace the asparagus.

    Chicken Sauté with Sugar Snaps and Asparagus


    • All-purpose flour for dredging
    • 10 oz. (315 g) chicken tenders
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 2 Tbs. olive oil
    • 1 bunch thin asparagus (about 1/2 lb./250 g), ends trimmed
    • 1/2 lb. (250 g) sugar snap peas
    • 1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1 Tbs. minced fresh thyme, plus more for garnish
    • 1 Tbs. minced fresh chives, plus more for garnish
    • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice, plus more to taste
    • Lemon zest strips for garnish (optional)

    1. Spread the flour on a plate. Cut the chicken tenders in half crosswise. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then dredge in the flour.

    2. In a large nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 Tbs. of the olive oil. Add the chicken and sauté until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the remaining 1 Tbs. olive oil to the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Add the asparagus and sauté for 1 minute. Add the sugar snap peas raise the heat to medium-high. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper and sauté for 1 minute. Add the broth and bring to a boil, stirring up any browned bits on the pan bottom. Cover the pan and boil until the vegetables are almost crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.

    3. Return the chicken to the pan. Add the thyme, chives and 1 Tbs. of the lemon juice. Simmer uncovered, stirring almost constantly, until the sauce thickens and coats the chicken, about 2 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

    4. Divide the chicken and vegetables between 2 warmed plates. Season to taste with more lemon juice, if desired, and garnish with thyme, chives and lemon zest. Serve immediately. Serves 2.

    Recipe Summary

    • 5 oil-packed anchovy fillets, drained and chopped
    • 2 cups fresh bread crumbs
    • 12 garlic cloves, smashed
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
    • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
    • Salt
    • 1 pound sugar snap peas
    • 3 medium shallots, thinly sliced

    In a food processor, combine 4 of the anchovy fillets with the bread crumbs, garlic, parsley and 1/2 cup of the olive oil process until evenly blended.

    Season the chicken thighs with salt. In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the bread crumb mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

    Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a pot of boiling, salted water, blanch the snap peas until bright green, about 1 minute. Drain and pat dry.

    Grill the chicken thighs over moderate heat until they are lightly charred, crisp and cooked through, about 10 minutes per side. Transfer the thighs to a platter.

    In a large skillet, heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the shallots and the remaining anchovy fillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the snap peas and cook, tossing a few times, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Season the snap peas with salt and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve the chicken with the snap peas.
