with Romanesco, Baby Potatoes & Dipping Sauce

Cooking time

30 minutes




700 /serving

The kitchen is going to smell so heavenly when our berbere-inspired spices are in the house—fenugreek, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves, to name a few. Taking this aromatic traybake from start to finish is as easy as one, two, three. One: pop in the potatoes, you want them tender and browned. Two: in go chicken thighs and veggies for a sizzle. Three: throw in a few leafy greens at the very end. Make that four: serve with a creamy-tangy fantasy of a dipping sauce.

Roast the potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve the potatoes (or quarter if large). On a lined sheet pan, toss the potatoes with a drizzle of oil and season with S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast, stirring halfway through, 10 to 12 minutes, until beginning to soften. Remove from the oven.

Mise en place
While the potatoes roast, remove and discard the core of the romanesco; cut the head into small florets. Halve and peel the onion; cut into ¼ inch wedges. Finely chop the scallion, discarding the root end. Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towel. In a large bowl, combine the chicken with a drizzle of oil; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P to taste.

Add the romanesco & chicken
To the sheet pan of potatoes, add the romanesco and onion; drizzle with oil, and generously season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P. Toss the vegetables and arrange in a single, even layer. Return to the oven and roast, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and nestle the seasoned chicken* between the vegetables. Roast, 16 to 20 minutes, until the vegetables are golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. In the final 2 minutes of roasting, remove the pan from the oven and add the spinach; stir to combine and return to the oven for the remaining time.

Make the dipping sauce
While the chicken and vegetables roast, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, champagne vinegar, remaining spice blend and as much scallion as you’d like; season with S&P to taste.
