Roasted Chicken Breasts with Butternut Squash

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

I’m really bummed that I didn’t take pictures of this recipe, but I decided to post it anyway because it was delicious!  This is a really quick one dish meal for a weeknight.

The recipe suggests making foil pans for the chicken and squash, but I just used a 9×13 pan, with the chicken in the middle and the squash lining the sides of the dish.

Roasted Chicken Breast with Creamy Butternut Squash (Adapted from Cook by Jamie Oliver)

4 chicken breasts, cut in half

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 jalapenos, minced (I left the seeds in mine)

2 TBSP olive oil

1 TBSP oregano

salt and pepper

1 butternut squash, seeded and sliced

1/2 cup of cream

1/2 tsp grated nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the chicken breasts in a bowl.  Toss with olive oil, garlic, jalepeno, oregano, salt and pepper.

Place the chicken breasts in the middle of a 9×13 baking dish.  Line the dish with the butternut squash.  Pour the cream over the butternut squash, but avoid pouring it on the chicken.  Season the squash with the nutmeg.

Put the dish in the oven and roast until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about 40 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
