An unexpected pairing of fruit and vegetables—berries, watermelon radish, and cabbage—adds color and nourishment to this delicious supper. Pan-seared chicken is further brought to life by citrusy sumac; though it might seem like a mere spice, sumac is also a concentrated source of free-radical-fighting antioxidants.

Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the cabbage

Heat the oven to 425°F.
  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; cut the cabbage lengthwise into quarters.
On a sheet pan, drizzle the cabbage with 1½ tablespoons [3 TBL] oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until lightly browned and tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
While the cabbage roasts, prepare the chicken.


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Measure 1½ teaspoons [1 TBL] sumac; save the rest for another use.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper and 1½ teaspoons [1 TBL] sumac.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Cut the chicken into ½-inch-thick slices.
While the chicken cooks and cools, prepare the salad.


Make the salad

  • Peel the watermelon radish; cut the radish in half lengthwise, then crosswise into thin half-moons.
  • Cut the blackberries in half, if desired.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Zest half the lemon and juice both halves, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest 1 lemon and juice both lemons.]
In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, radish, blackberries, parsley, lemon zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chicken and salad to individual plates and serve.
