    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. This dish showcases our bright tomatillo-poblano sauce, which we’re mixing with rich mascarpone cheese to make a creamy, zesty sauce for our seared chicken—perfectly accompanied by a trio of roasted squash, potatoes, and onion.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare & roast the vegetables
    1 Prepare & roast the vegetables

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 2-inch-wide wedges, keeping the layers intact. Place the diced potatoes, onion wedges, and squash on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the spice blend; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 27 to 29 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Cook the steaks
    2 Cook the steaks

    Once the vegetables have roasted about 10 minutes, pat the steaks 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 steaks. Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium- rare (125°F), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board; let rest at least 5 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for steak. Cook the steaks an additional 2 to 3 minutes to achieve this.

    Consuming raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish, seafood or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.
