Updated September 20, 2016

Ingredients

Squash

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 butternut squash (2 to 2 1/2 lb), halved, seeded, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices

Chicken

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (6 to 8 oz each)
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

For Serving

  • Additional chopped fresh parsley, thyme and oregano

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Line large, rimmed sheet pan with foil. Spray with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix olive oil, chili garlic sauce and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add squash, and toss to coat; place squash in single layer on foil. Place wire rack on top of squash. Spray rack with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix cream cheese, herbs and 1/2 teaspoon salt. In thick side of each chicken breast, cut 3-inch-long pocket to within 1/4 inch of opposite side of breast. Spoon about 2 tablespoons cheese mixture into pocket in each chicken breast. Wrap each breast with one piece of bacon, and secure with toothpicks. Place chicken on rack.
  • 3
    Bake chicken and squash 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix melted butter, brown sugar and soy sauce. Brush chicken with butter mixture; bake about 5 minutes longer or until chicken stuffing reaches internal temperature of 165°F and squash is tender. Top with more fresh herbs, as desired.

  • Chili garlic sauce is more complex and slightly less spicy than Sriracha. Try swapping it in anywhere you’d usually use Sriracha.
  • Make sure to use thick-cut bacon to wrap the chicken breasts. A thin-cut bacon would cook too quickly.
