From the Test Kitchen

We’re making a pair of sophisticated, seasonal toppings to serve with our crispy chicken and hearty roasted vegetables. Carrots, potato, and Chioggia beet—a variety with beautiful pink-striped flesh—get extra richness from chestnuts in brown butter. When spooned over the chicken, a pan sauce of sweet fig, cider vinegar, and butter adds depth of flavor that ties the dish together.
