From the Test Kitchen

This dish highlights some of autumn’s finest produce, including acorn squash and cauliflower (which, depending on what’s freshest near you, may be white, green, orange, purple or Romanesco). Roasted together with orange-hued potatoes, these vegetables take on a distinctive sweetness—a delicious counterpoint to our chicken’s bright, briny pan sauce. (When peeling the acorn squash, we instruct you to leave alternating strips of skin intact. Since the skin is edible, there’s no need to get in between the raised ridges with your peeler!)

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Peel the squash, leaving alternating strips of skin intact. Halve the squash; scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds, then large dice. Cut out and discard the cauliflower core; cut the head into bite-sized florets. Large dice the potatoes. Peel the garlic; finely chop 2 of the cloves and thinly slice the remaining cloves. Roughly chop the capers. Finely chop the parsley leaves and stems.

Roast the vegetables:
2 Roast the vegetables:

Place the squash, cauliflower, potatoes and sliced garlic on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast 34 to 36 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Brown the chicken:
3 Brown the chicken:

Once the vegetables have roasted for about 10 minutes, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add half the seasoned chicken and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Transfer to a plate, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Repeat with the remaining seasoned chicken, leaving it in the pan.

Finish the chicken & make the pan sauce:
4 Finish the chicken & make the pan sauce:

Return the first batch of browned chicken to the pan with the second batch. Add the capers, butter and chopped garlic. Cook, frequently swirling the pan, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add ½ cup of water (be careful, as the sauce may splatter). Cook, occasionally turning the chicken, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced in volume by about half and the chicken is cooked through. Add the vinegar and cook, frequently swirling the pan, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Stir in all but a pinch of the parsley; season with salt and pepper to taste.

5 Plate your dish:

Divide the roasted vegetables between 4 dishes. Top with the finished chicken and pan sauce. Garnish with the remaining parsley. Enjoy!
