  • 1

    large acorn squash (about 2 pounds)—halved, seeded, and sliced ½ inch thick

  • 3

    tablespoons olive oil

  • kosher salt and black pepper

  • 4

    6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • ½

    teaspoon ground coriander

  • ¼

    teaspoon ground ginger

  • teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1

    bunch kale, thick stems removed and leaves torn (about 6 cups)

  • 1

    cup pitted prunes, halved

  • 2

    cloves garlic, chopped


1. Heat oven to 450° F. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the squash with 1 tablespoon of the oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Roast, turning once, until tender, 18 to 20 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the chicken with the coriander, ginger, cinnamon, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm. 3. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Add the kale, prunes, and garlic; cover and cook, tossing occasionally, until the kale is tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the squash and toss to combine. Serve with the chicken.
