From the Test Kitchen

Fall vegetables, with their natural sweetness, are delectable enough simply roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper. Here, a quick pan sauce adds another comforting layer to our pan-seared chicken and roasted produce—including honeynut squash (an especially sweet, miniature butternut) and crisp apple. Simply browned butter combined with fresh sage and almonds, our sauce tops off the dish with toasty, herbaceous flavor and satisfying crunch.

Prepare the ingredients:

1 Prepare the ingredients:


Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry and the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the squash ends; carefully peel the squash. Halve the squash lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Medium dice the squash. Medium dice the potato. Core and medium dice the apple. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Pick the sage leaves off the stems; discard the stems and thinly slice. Roughly chop the almonds.

While the vegetables finish roasting, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken, skin sides down; cook, loosely covering the pan with foil, 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.
