From the Test Kitchen

In this wholesome meal, we’re reveling in some of the season’s most exquisite flavors. We’re glazing our chicken with a truly special pan sauce: rich demi-glace and butter combine with Dijon mustard and apple cider­ (more than just a delicious cool-weather beverage!) for harmonious results. As a real treat, we’re adding roasted chestnuts, whose robustness puts the sauce over the top. Earthy-sweet fall vegetables, crisped up in the oven with fresh thyme, make for an effortlessly tasty side.
