MAKES 4 SERVING/ TOTAL TIME 45 MINUTES
2 ½ pounds delicata or acorn squash
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil,
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard,
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
1 teaspoon ground pepper, divided
½ teaspoon salt, divided
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 ½ teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
8 cups mixed salad greens
4 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
4 teaspoons salted roasted
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Cut squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Cut crosswise into 1-inch slices. Combine 1 tablespoon oil, 1 1/2 tablespoons mustard, garlic, rosemary, lemon zest, 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add chicken and the squash and stir to coat. Arrange in a single layer on the prepared pan
Bake, without stirring or flipping, until the squash starts to brown and the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, 20 to 22 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and slice.
Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 tablespoon mustard, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, maple syrup, thyme, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Add greens and toss to coat. Divide the greens among 4 serving plates.
