Here’s what you need
- 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into large pieces
- 1 bunch curly kale, stemmed and roughly chopped
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 2” pieces
- sea salt and black pepper
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 red onion, sliced
- 1 Tablespoon fresh sage, minced
- ½ cup chicken broth
- ¼ teaspoon liquid stevia
- 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
- Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the butternut squash pieces and blanch for 3 minutes, until almost cooked through.
- Remove from heat and stir in the chopped kale. Let stand, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Drain the pot and set the veggies aside.
- Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Return the emptied pot to medium-high heat and sauté the chicken with the olive oil, until browned on all sides.
- Add the onions and sauté for 2 minutes. Mix in the butternut squash and kale mixture and sage. Sauté for another 2 minutes.
- In a small bowl combine the broth, stevia and Dijon. Pour over the hash and simmer until the liquid is reduced. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
