How creative can you be... help me with dinner...

I have boneless skinless chicken breasts and a large amount of cooked butternut squash (left over from another meal).

Other than simply cooking up the chicken and serving the squash on the side... what could I do with it???

I have an hour and a half to cook.

  • Mix the squash with some cooked noodles and cheese (parmesan or something like that) and do the chicken separately

    Or you can add a white cheese sauce (what the heck is it called) and after cooking the chicken in cubes mix the chicken in as well and pour over noodles.

  • thank you ladies... I made my choice...

    I pounded the chicken flat, mixed some roasted pinenuts in with the squash, rolled the squash into the chicken, and covered in seasoned flower.

    4 chicken breasts, skinned
    8 sage leaves
    1-medium butternut squash, peeled and coarsely cut
    3.5 tablespoons of butter
    1 cup of white wine
    Olive oil for drizzling

    -Preheat your oven to 395. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and lay a couple of sage leaves on top of each one.
    -Toss the butternut squash in a roasting tray and season with salt and pepper. Dot the butter over the top, and pour over the wine.
    -Place the chicken breasts on top and then drizzle some olive oil all over.
    -Place in the oven for about 30 minutes.

  • I would have made butternut squash risotto from it.
