One Pot Chicken Dish: Chicken Squash Medley

This easy one-pot chicken dish could go into the 17 minute meals category except for the cooking time.

It is a quick and easy chicken recipe that takes advantage of the fall harvest.

You can use any variety of squash that you would like. I usually include at least one deep orange one. Pick a tart apple.

Chicken And Apples: Use Salmon Or Pork Chops Too

Chicken thighs are the ideal size for this one-pot chicken dish. When you use chicken breasts the vegetables tend to be a bit firm and when you use thighs the veggies are a bit overcooked when the chicken is done.

This recipe also goes nicely with a salmon fillet or pork chops. Don’t get the extra thick pork chops and it will cook perfectly.
