Ingredients

Garlic-Butter Chicken

  • 4 chicken thighs (Use skinless or with skin)
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp fresh sage, chopped
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth

Autumn Squash

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lay butternut squash cubes out on sheet pan, brush with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and cinnamon evenly over top and bake on lower shelf in oven for 25 minutes. Carefully flip squash half way with spatula to bake evenly. 

  2. Chicken: Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on both sides of chicken thighs. Heat a large cast-iron skillet on medium heat. Cook chicken in butter for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

  3. Remove chicken from pan, on low heat saute garlic for 1-2 minutes, stir constantly to avoid the garlic from burning. Add chicken broth to skillet and stir ingredients together. Place chicken skin side up into broth, use a spoon to baste chicken with sauce. Bake on top shelf in oven for 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and has golden crispy skin. 

  4. Remove butternut squash and chicken from oven. Baste chicken with garlic-butter and sage sauce. Serve/prep chicken & sauce over rice with butternut squash on the side. Add additional sides if desired.
