Recipe Directions for Chicken Butternut Squash Quinoa Stew

  1. Steam the butternut squash until barely tender, about 10 minutes. Remove half of the squash pieces and set aside.

  5. Transfer the chicken thighs to a plate and allow to cool. Pour broth into a medium-sized bowl.

  6. Return the saucepan to the stovetop and lower heat to medium. Add olive oil.

  7. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is starting to turn brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

  8. Add minced garlic and oregano. Cook, stirring, for 1 additional minute.

  9. To the saucepan, add tomatoes, butternut squash pieces, mashed butternut squash. Stir to combine.

  10. Stir in reserved chicken broth and quinoa. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook until the quinoa turns translucent, about 15 minutes.

  12. Stir the chicken, olives and pepper into the stew and simmer, uncovered, to heat, about 5 minutes.

  13. Stir in parsley and serve.
