From the Test Kitchen

Alsace, a region of France bordering Germany, distinctively (and deliciously) combines French and German culinary influences. In this Alsatian-style recipe, we’re coating our succulent chicken in the classic “quatre épices,” or four spices: pepper, cloves, nutmeg and ginger. Alongside the chicken, we’re serving creamy smashed potatoes, and red cabbage glazed with red wine vinegar for tangy-sweet contrast and plenty of satisfying texture.

In a large, high-sided pan, heat 1½ cups of water to boiling on high. Add the cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the cabbage is tender and the water has cooked off. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the sugar and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally to coat the cabbage, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved and the liquid is slightly reduced in volume; season with salt and pepper to taste.
