Prep: 25 minutes
Cook: 35 minutes

Ingredients

4 cups butternut squash cut into 1-inch cubes (about 1 medium squash)

4 cups Brussels sprouts, halved

Four 4-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness

1/3 cup low-sugar apricot preserves (like the kind by Smucker's)

1 tbsp. reduced-sodium/lite soy sauce

 

Seasonings

1 tsp. each salt and black pepper

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

1/8 tsp. onion powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Evenly lay cubed squash and halved Brussels sprouts on the baking sheet. Lightly spray with nonstick spray, and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes.

Flip veggies. Bake until softened and slightly browned, 15 - 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a grill pan (or large skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Season chicken with remaining 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side, working in batches if needed. Plate chicken, and cover to keep warm.

To make the glaze, in a small nonstick pot, combine preserves, soy sauce, garlic powder, and onion powder. Whisk until uniform. Set heat to medium low. Cook and stir until hot, about 2 minutes. (Alternatively, heat in the microwave.)

Drizzle grilled chicken with glaze, and enjoy with roasted veggies.
