• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. • Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Peel garlic. Place potatoes and whole garlic in a medium pot with enough salted water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. • Reserve ½ cup potato cooking liquid, then drain and return potatoes and garlic to pot. • Keep covered off heat until ready to mash.
• Meanwhile, halve, core, and dice apple into ¼-inch pieces. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Zest and quarter lemon.
• Toss green beans on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. • Roast on top rack until golden brown and tender, 12-15 minutes.
• While green beans roast, pat chicken* dry with paper towels. Season lightly with salt and pepper, then rub all over with Brown Sugar Bourbon Spice. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, 5-7 minutes per side. • Turn off heat; transfer to a plate. Wipe out pan.
• Heat 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) and a drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add apple and scallion whites; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 4-6 minutes. • Stir in stock concentrate, ½ cup water, and ½ tsp sugar. (For 4, use ¾ cup water and 1 tsp sugar.) Cook until apple is tender and sauce has thickened, 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. • In the last 2 minutes, add chicken to pan; turn a few times to coat.
• While sauce cooks, mash potatoes and garlic with sour cream and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) until smooth and creamy, adding splashes of reserved potato cooking liquid as needed. Season with salt and pepper. TIP: If necessary, rewarm over low heat.
• Toss green beans with lemon zest. • Divide chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, and zesty green beans between plates. Spoon remaining sauce from pan over chicken and garnish with scallion greens. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges on the side.
