Wash produce before use


Prep the parsnips and carrots

Heat the oven to 450°F.

  • Scrub or peel the parsnips and carrots and trim the ends; cut the vegetables in half lengthwise, then on the diagonal into 2-inch lengths. 

On one end of a sheet pan [on 1 sheet pan], toss the parsnips and carrots with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer. 


Prep the chicken

  • Strip the rosemary leaves from the stems and coarsely chop enough to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp]. Save any remaining rosemary for another use.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; rub with the rosemary and season generously with salt and pepper.

On the other end of the sheet pan [on a 2nd sheet pan], place the chicken. 


Roast the vegetables and chicken

Roast the vegetables and chicken, stirring the vegetables and turning the chicken halfway through, until the vegetables are tender and starting to brown and the chicken is cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the salbitxada sauce. 


Make the salbitxada sauce

  • Finely chop the roasted red peppers.
  • Coarsely chop the almonds.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.

In a small bowl, stir together the red peppers, almonds, garlic, tomatoes, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, and half the red wine vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper and more vinegar, if desired. 


Transfer the chicken, parsnips, and carrots to individual plates. Top the chicken with the salbitxada sauce, garnish with the parsley, and serve.
