large acorn squash (about 2 pounds)—halved, seeded, and sliced 1/2 inch thick
kosher salt and black pepper
6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
bunch kale, thick stems removed and leaves torn (about 6 cups)
pitted prunes, halved
cloves garlic, chopped
- Heat oven to 450° F. Toss the squash,1 tablespoon of the oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, turning once, until tender, 18 to 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the 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 an instant-read thermometer inserted in each breast registers 165º F, 7 to 10 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm. Reserve the skillet.
- Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the drippings in 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.
