Y viva España! We’re off to sunny Spain for dinner with a view of the sunset. Romesco is a bit of a national treasure, featuring the rich and tangy taste of almonds and sweet peppers. Our almond butter and roasted red pepper spread, blended with a little sherry vinegar, make fast work of it as a vinaigrette. Round out the plates with roasted onion and thick-cut zucchini, alongside slices of seared chicken breasts. A final fling of sliced almonds closes the case.

Roast the vegetables
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise; halve crosswise. Peel and cut the onion into ¼ inch rounds. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ½ the spices and S&P. Roast, flipping halfway, 14 to 16 min., until browned and tender.

Toast the almonds
Meanwhile, heat a large, dry pan on medium. Toast the almonds, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 min., until lightly browned and fragrant. Transfer to a bowl and reserve the pan.

Cook the chicken
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 min. before thinly slicing against the grain.
