This is a great recipe for fall with two seasonal favorites, brussels sprouts and butternut squash. Butternut squash is sometimes known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin or gramma.


4 chicken thighs
4 chicken drumsticks
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP unsalted butter
16 Brussels sprouts (about 8 ounces), bottom trimmed, outer leaves removed, and halved
2 cups diced (1/2 inch) butternut squash
2 TBSP maple syrup
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1-1/2 cup chicken stock


1 – In a saute pan large enough to hold the chicken in a single layer, heat the olive oil over medium high heat.
2 – Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
3 – Add chicken to pan, skin side down and saute for about 4-5 minutes per side or until chicken is browned.
4 – Remove chicken from pan and reserve.
5 – In same pan, add butter. Allow the butter to melt over medium heat. Add squash and sprouts to pan and sauté, tossing occasionally, until the outsides are golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.
6 – Remove from pan and hold separately from chicken.
7 – Turn heat to high and add stock, syrup and mustard. Stir and bring to a boil, stirring to scrape up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan.
8 – Add chicken back to the pan, cover, and reduce heat to medium low.
9 – Cook over medium low heat for 20-25 minutes or until chicken registers 170 degrees F with an instant read thermometer.
10 – Add vegetables back to pan, cover again, and cook for another 8-10 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
11 – Remove chicken and vegetables to a serving platter, placing vegetables around chicken.
12 – Turn heat to high and boil sauce until it is reduced and slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
13 – Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.
