    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.

    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.

Expert 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.
