Roasted Chicken and Butternut Squash with Herbed Wine Sauce



4 bone-in chicken breast halves (about 2 pounds), skinned
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
½ teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
5 cups (½-inch) cubed peeled butternut squash (about 2¼ pounds)
1 teaspoon fine herbs
3 tablespoons dry white wine


1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

2. Place chicken in a large roast pan coated with cooking spray. Brush chicken with 1½ teaspoons olive oil; sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

3. Place squash in a large bowl. Drizzle with remaining olive oil, and sprinkle with fine herbs, remaining salt, and remaining pepper; toss well. Add squash to pan. Bake at 450°F for 38 minutes or until chicken is done. Transfer chicken and squash to a serving platter; keep warm.

4. Add wine to pan drippings; bring to a boil over high heat, scraping pan to loosen brown bits. Reduce heat; cook 2 minutes or until reduced to ¼ cup. Place 1 chicken breast half on each of 4 plates. Spoon 1 tablespoon sauce over each chicken breast. Serve with squash.
