From the Test Kitchen

In this dish, savory flavor comes from our romesco sauce—a bold, Spanish-style sauce made with almonds, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, and garlic—which we’re using to coat sautéed chicken, onion, and verdant spinach. A dollop of tzatziki provides delightfully cooling contrast to the dish.
