Recipe Ingredients for Balsamic Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Apples & Butternut Squash

25 oz boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (5 breasts)
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
4 cups butternut squash, cubed
2 cups apples, skin on and cubed (I like Golden Delicious)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Balsamic Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Apples & Butternut Squash

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place chicken in a bowl or seal in a plastic bag. In a separate, smaller bowl, combine half of the oil, the Dijon, balsamic vinegar, rosemary and pepper. Pour the mixture over chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

  2. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the squash and apples. Toss the apples with maple syrup and lemon juice. In a baking dish, coat squash with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake covered for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and add the apple mixture. Bake uncovered for another 30 minutes or until squash and apples are tender. Stir occasionally.

  3. While squash and apples finish cooking, remove the chicken from refrigerator. Heat a skillet to medium high heat. Cook chicken for 5 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked through. This works great on the grill as well.

  4. Serve with warm squash and apples.
