Vegetables get the VIP treatment in this classic chicken dinner. To give carrots an extra-special spin, you’ll roast them to tenderness and then create a butter gloss with carrot juice and apple cider vinegar—inspired by the French-style Vichy glaze. (Pop some peas in there, while you’re at it.) The potatoes get gently crushed—with butter, because when in France—for a rustic consistency. Golden-seared chicken breasts fall into place on these pretty plates, with a sprinkling of fresh green chives.

Roast the carrots
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Halve the carrots lengthwise. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Roast, flipping halfway, 20 to 25 min., until tender.

Make the crushed potatoes
Meanwhile, halve the potatoes (quarter if large). Add to the pot of boiling water and boil, 14 to 16 min., until very tender. Drain and return to the pot. Add 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) and stir, breaking up the potatoes slightly, until combined; season well with S&P. Cover and keep warm.

Cook the chicken
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.

Make the glaze & coat the carrots
In the reserved pan, add the carrot juice, vinegar and 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions); bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and add the carrots and peas. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 min., until slightly reduced and glazed; season with the remaining spices and S&P.
