Chicken and melted cheese is always a recipe for success. Chicken and melted cheese plus a rich gravy, however, is the ultimate comfort trifecta. And since we’ve been feeling the late-winter blues lately, we’re looking for an extra warm and cozy meal. Seared chicken is topped with a umami-packed mushroom gravy and melty Monterey Jack cheese. On the side, there’s sour cream mashed potatoes and crispy-edged roasted carrots for maximum deliciousness (and for catching any runoff sauce).

1

Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Trim, peel, and cut carrots on a diagonal into 1-inch-thick pieces. Trim and thinly slice mushrooms. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens.

2

Toss carrots on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Roast until tender, 25-30 minutes. Meanwhile, dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces (peel first for a smoother texture). Place in a large pot with enough salted water to cover by 2 inches. Boil until tender, 15-20 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup potato cooking liquid (½ cup for 4); drain and return potatoes to pot.

3

While potatoes cook, pat chicken dry with paper towels and season all over with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over mediumhigh heat. Add chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, 5-7 minutes per side. Turn off heat; transfer to a plate.

4

Heat pot with drained potatoes over low heat; add 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) and half the sour cream. Using a potato masher or fork, mash potatoes, adding splashes of reserved potato cooking liquid as needed until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper.

5

Heat a drizzle of oil in pan used for chicken over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and scallion whites; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until softened, 2-4 minutes. Stir in stock concentrate and ¼ cup water (⅓ cup for 4 servings). Bring to a boil, then reduce to a low simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat. Stir in 1 TBSP butter and remaining sour cream. Season with salt and pepper.

6

Heat pan with sauce over mediumlow heat; add chicken. Spoon some sauce over chicken. Evenly top chicken with Monterey Jack. Cover pan until cheese is melted, 1-2 minutes. Divide carrots, potatoes, and chicken between plates. Spoon remaining sauce over chicken and potatoes. Garnish with scallion greens and serve.
