    Directions

    1. For the chicken, combine 4 cups cold water, 2 tablespoons kosher salt and 1 tablespoon sugar. Stir until the mixture is clear and all salt and sugar have been dissolved, about 30 seconds. Add the chicken and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.
    2. While the chicken is brining, make the dressing. Combine basil leaves, lemon zest and juice, garlic, anchovy paste, Dijon mustard, sugar, salt and pepper in the bowl of a blender or food processor. Blend/process till the basil is finely chopped. Slowly add the oil while continuing to blend/process. Stop when all the oil has been incorporated and the dressing is smooth. Transfer to a glass jar or container with a tight fitting lid. Set aside. Dressing can be made up to 24 hours in advance. Shake well before serving.
    3. Place the potatoes in a medium-sized saucepan. Cover with water and add 2 teaspoons kosher salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a steady simmer and cook for 8-10 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain well and transfer to a bowl. Drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil and toss to coat. Season lightly with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
