How to Make It

Step 1    Prepare the Squash

Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.

Step 2    Prepare the Squash

Combine the olive oil, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Coat the acorn squash pieces with the mixture and season with salt and pepper.

Step 3    Prepare the Squash

Place the squash on the prepared pan and roast for 20 minutes. Flip the squash pieces over and continue roasting for about 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Set aside.

Step 4    Meanwhile, Poach the Chicken

Rinse off the chicken breasts. Fill a medium stockpot with water and add the herbs, bay leaf, garlic, salt and peppercorns. Bring the water to a boil and add the chicken breasts.

Step 5    Meanwhile, Poach the Chicken

Return the water to a boil and then lower heat to medium. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat, cover with a lid and keep the chicken in the hot water for another 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.

Step 6    Meanwhile, Poach the Chicken

Remove the chicken from the water and shred into bite-sized pieces. Toss the squash with the chicken, garnish with parsley and serve warm or at room temperature.
