Recipe | "One Pan Autumn Chicken Dinner" by Sue Ready

Cook's Notes: Some advance planning makes this meal preparation easier. Marinating the chicken in buttermilk one to two hours ahead tenderizes the meat. Precut butternut squash found in the produce department can cut down the chopping time. Chicken needs to cook longer than the veggies so give it a 30 minute head start. 

Pair the meal with rice or risotto and your favorite apple cake with maple icing.
