Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until chicken is no longer pink in centre and skin is golden and crispy, about 35 minutes. Makes 4 servings.

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until fork-tender, about 15 minutes; drain well. Press potatoes through potato ricer. (Make-ahead: Spread onto parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet; let cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Continue with recipe, adding 8 minutes to cook time.)

This Chinese classic gets a wholesome makeover by replacing the meat with loads of fresh vegetables. Korean hot pepper paste isn't traditionally found in ma po tofu, but it adds a nice kick. Look for it in the Asian section of your grocery store, or substitute with one teaspoon of sriracha.

20-minute whole grain
vegetable oil or
quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise in scant 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick pieces
trimmed and cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) lengths
In saucepan, cook rice according to package instructions.
Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry carrot, three-quarters of the green onions and the ginger until carrot is beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Add green beans and mushrooms; stir-fry until green beans are beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in black bean garlic sauce and hot pepper paste; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Whisk cornstarch with 1 cup water; stir into vegetable mixture. Bring to boil; boil, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium. Add tofu; cook, stirring gently, until tofu is coated and warmed through, about 3 minutes. If necessary, add water, 1 tbsp at a time, to reach desired consistency.
Divide rice among serving bowls; top with ma po tofu. Sprinkle with remaining green onions.
Tip from The Test Kitchen: Use medium-firm tofu in stir-fries. It has a delicate texture yet doesn't fall apart as easily as soft tofu.
In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions. Stir in cherries; knead gently just until dough comes together.
Divide dough into thirds. Working one-third at a time, place dough on large piece of plastic wrap. Covering loosely with plastic wrap, shape into 8-inch (20 cm) long log. Flatten sides to form 1-inch (2.5 cm) tall rectangle; twist ends of plastic wrap to seal. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze in airtight container for up to 3 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before continuing with recipe.)
Trim ends of logs; slice dough into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick rounds, reshaping as needed. Arrange, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 375?F (190?C) oven, switching and rotating pans halfway through, until light golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes; transfer directly to racks to cool completely. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; store for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
