To give this simple dish another layer of flavor without adding much fat, chef Jacques Torres glazes chicken and vegetables with a bit of honey and cooks them until they are deeply caramelized.

  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  3. 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  4. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  5. Four 6-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  6. 2 medium onions, halved and thinly sliced
  7. 2 medium red bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips
  8. 1/4 cup honey
  1. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the olive oil with the ginger, cayenne, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Add the chicken breasts and turn to coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the chicken breasts and cook over moderately high heat until golden and nearly white throughout, about 7 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  3. Add the onions and bell peppers to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes, stirring and scraping up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat to moderate, cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Return the chicken to the skillet, nestling it into the onions and peppers. Cover and cook for 5 minutes longer. Uncover and add the honey. Cook over high heat, stirring and turning the chicken breasts, until the honey caramelizes, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve right away.
