Pan-Seared Sweet Soy Glazed Chicken
with Roasted Carrots & Broccoli
When it comes to elevating a simple weeknight meal—like our dear friend, the humble pork chop—it’s all about the pan sauce! In this case, you’ll get a great sear on the pork, then coat it in a tangy-sweet soy sauce thickened with butter to glossy perfection. On the side is roasted broccoli and carrots sprinkled with fiery Korean chili flakes. Shower your plate with scallion greens before serving for a fresh, zippy crunch.

• Adjust rack to top position (top and middle positions for 4 servings) and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Cut broccoli florets into bite-size pieces if necessary. Trim, peel, and cut carrots on a diagonal into ½-inch-thick pieces. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens.
• Toss broccoli on one side of a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Toss carrots on empty side with a drizzle of oil, a pinch of chili flakes, salt, and pepper.

Add carrots to a separate baking sheet; roast broccoli on top rack and carrots on middle rack.) • Roast on top rack, tossing halfway through, until tender and crisp, 20-25 minutes.
• Pat pork dry with paper towels and season all over with garlic powder, remaining chili flakes, salt, and pepper. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes per side. • Turn off heat; transfer to a cutting board. Wipe out pan and let cool slightly.
