Grilled chicken salad with garlic confit

I’m so glad a neighbor gave me two very packed bags of arugula, because it gave me an excuse to make this salad! I also now want to put garlic confit on everything. I’m sort of hoarding the rest of the dressing in my fridge right now.

Chickpeas, chorizo and chevre

This was such a quick, one-pan meal that packed significantly more flavor that I could have expected. I’d love to tell you how the leftovers were, but we had seconds and polished the whole thing off in one sitting.

Honey mustard Brussels sprouts over pureed cauliflower

Everyone has heard me say at least 5,000 times that I love fall flavors. But really, what is more satisfying than harvest-time veggies with just the right seasoning and a great combination of textures? I’m also really getting down with sweet and spicy flavors on my veggies lately, like this spicy mustard and honey combination. Another great one? Honey and sriracha. (More on that later.)

I'm calling this one of our best guides ever. These jams have been incredible and I've spent hardly any time on mine. No pectin, no canning, just a quick jam to store in the fridge for the week. And don't worry about it going bad — it does not last that long.

These are a great side option for summer burgers, or anything, really. That is, once any of us dare to turn our ovens on again.

I know we say the we love the flavors in many of our dishes, but I have to say that these are truly tastes that sing to me. Fall is my favorite season, especially for produce — plus I’m a sucker for Mexican food. You couldn’t make a more Sarah-centric meal, although I would accept challengers.

  • 1 chicken breast, poached and shredded/cubed
  • 1 poblano pepper, roasted, peeled and sliced
  • 1 acorn squash (try to find a small one)
  • 1 red onion, sliced about 1/4-inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 4-ounce log goat cheese
  • 4 soft corn tortillas, about 8 inches or so in diameter
  • 1/2 cup – 2/3 cup salsa verde (if you would like to make your own, try our recipe from last summer)

Cut the acorn squash in half and roast at 400 degrees, skin side down, for 40-50 minutes, or until the squash can be easily pierced with a fork.

You could do a lot of variations on these enchiladas. Shrimp or steak instead of chicken (or no meat at all for a vegetarian version). You could also go with a milder roasted bell pepper if poblanos are too spicy for your taste.

In the meantime, heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a medium-sized sauté pan. Add the onions to the pan and cook until caramelized, occasionally de-glazing the pan with a little water when necessary. Set aside.

When the squash has cooked, scoop the flesh out of the skin and mash with the cumin, salt and pepper.

Set up an assembly line of ingredients to build the enchiladas. If your corn tortillas seem a bit dry and may break as you work with them, microwave them for a few seconds while covered with a moist paper towel.

Working down the center of the tortilla, layer a line of squash, onion, pepper, chicken and feta. Roll the enchilada up and place seam-side down in an 8-by-8-inch or 9-by-9-inch baking pan. Continue with the remaining ingredients so the four enchiladas fit snuggly in the pan.

The enchiladas may be refrigerated at this point if you are preparing them in advance!

By the way – BE CAREFUL when peeling/cutting poblanos. Mine were especially hot this time around and, four hours later, my fingers are still burning. Wear gloves when working with any hot pepper!

Before cooking, top the enchiladas with the salsa and sprinkle with any remaining goat cheese. Cook for about 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Makes 2-4 servings.
