Chicken and Rice with Kabocha Squash

This one-pot recipe works just as well with acorn or butternut squash. Arborio rice gives it a delectable, creamy texture -- but it's remarkably light.

Cook's Notes

When you're really in a hurry, get a head start on dinner with a container of prepped butternut squash. It can be swapped into this recipe, or almost any that calls for cubed winter squash.

    Love, love, love this recipe. And so does everyone I've ever made it for. I have only used the butternut squash. But, it's just a real crowd pleaser and naturally gluten and dairy free so it works for lots of people with food allergies.
