Wash produce before use
Prep and brown the chicken
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pot. While the chicken is browning, start preparing the shallots and squash.
Prep and cook the shallots and squash
- Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
- Cut any large butternut squash chunks into ½-inch pieces.
In the same pot used for the chicken, if dry, add 2 to 3 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the shallots and butternut squash, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften and brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in ¼ cup [½ cup] white wine (from your pantry) or water and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot, until the liquid has almost evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. While the shallots and squash are cooking, prepare the greens.
Prep and cook the greens; finish the braise
- Remove any coarse stems from the mustard greens; coarsely chop the greens.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
To the pot with the squash, add the chicken and any accumulated juices, tomato sauce, vinegar blend, mustard greens, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through, the squash is tender, and the greens have wilted, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the chicken and vegetables to individual plates, garnish with the parsley, and serve.
- Measure the shallots.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Measure the water for the braise.
- Garnish with the parsley.
