Ingredients
  • 4 cups butternut squash, cubed
  • 4 cups boneless chicken, cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1½ teaspoons nutmeg
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or apple cider (use apple cider for Whole30)
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil of choice, for cooking (I use THIS)
  • optional: top with a sprinkle of freshly chopped herbs of choice: I like sage, thyme or rosemary! But use what you love 🙂
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients except the oil into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Next, heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  3. Once oil is heated, add all the contents of the bowl into the skillet and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Top with a sprinkle of freshly chopped herbs, if you desire. Enjoy!

  1. Oh wow, Kelly, this recipe sounds too good to be true…tons of flavor with minimal mess and ingredients. I am definitely trying this with the precut squash…cutting a butternut squash totally intimidates me!

  2. This sounds really good! Do you think it could go into the crockpot? Thank you for sharing!

    • I’ve done almost this same recipe (ingredient wise) in crock pot, I call it butternut chicken stew… It’s definitely softer/stewy in crock pot rather than the nice carmalized, individual pieces like in this one, but the flavors are great and is easy. 4 hours on high or 6-8 on low, if I recall correctly.
