Roasted Chicken and Acorn Squash with Sumac Brown Butter
Look for sumac at your local Middle Eastern market or on Amazon.
Nutty, full-bodied, white Rioja.
Very good! I used a whole chicken instead of leg quarters, and put the chicken in the oven for 20 mins befor adding the squash (that notwithstanding, it’s a little tough to get the squash and chicken on the same baking sheet, unless the chicken goes on top of some of the squash).
We ran out of lemon peel for zesting, so substituted orange zest in the brown butter sauce, and that was incredibly flavorful and adding another bit of character.
Also, substituted ancho Chile powder for Aleppo pepper, which gave an earthier taste, but was still quite good!
Will make again!Read More
