Coating chicken in an apple-mustard glaze and roasting with butternut squash on a sheet pan is as easy as it gets. But don’t think for a second that this all-in-one meal isn’t flavorful. That glaze is pure magic.

Ingredients

3
tablespoons frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
2
tablespoons whole-grain mustard
4
tablespoons olive oil
4
bone-in skin-on chicken breasts
1 1/4
teaspoons salt
1/2
teaspoon pepper
6
cups 1-inch cubes butternut squash (from 2 1/2-lb squash)

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 18x13-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. In small bowl, beat apple juice concentrate, mustard and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil with whisk. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the apple juice mixture; set aside.
  • 2 Season chicken with 3/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Place on one side of baking sheet, and brush with remaining apple juice mixture.
  • 3 Place squash on other side of baking sheet. Season with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons oil over squash; toss to coat. Roast 30 to 40 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (at least 165°F) and squash is tender.
  • 4 Drizzle reserved 3 tablespoons apple juice mixture over chicken breasts, and serve.
Tips  

If you’d like a little green on the dish, you can sprinkle the top of the chicken and squash with finely chopped parsley.

Whole-grain mustard is prepared mustard with visible mustard seeds. Look for coarse-ground mustard if you can't find whole grain.
