This delicious meal is a cinch to make when you use Crunchy Baked Chicken Cutlets that you've already prepared.

What you'll need

  • 20 ounces fresh or frozen cubed butternut squash
  • 4 cubed Golden Delicious apples
  • 4 frozen chicken cutlets
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Microwave the cubed butternut squash until slightly soft — 6 minutes for fresh, 10 to 12 minutes for frozen.

  2. Toss the squash with the cubed apples on a baking sheet and arrange the chicken cutlets on a second sheet.

  3. Make a glaze by reducing the apple cider in a saucepan over high heat for 10 minutes. Remove it from the heat and whisk in the butter and salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Pour half the glaze over the squash mixture. Bake the squash mixture on the oven's upper rack and the chicken on the lower rack until the cubes are tender and the chicken is warmed through, about 15 minutes.

  5. Serve each cutlet atop the squash and apples, drizzled with the remaining glaze.
