Tahini-Dressed Chicken with Squash and Kale

This Tahini-Dressed Chicken with Squash and Kale is a healthy meal for two. I love this recipe because it is a good way to serve up nutritious vegetables with protein-packed chicken. The savory blend of chicken thighs, butternut squash and kale, along with the warmth of ginger and garlic, includes all great winter flavors.

This dish comes together in about a half-hour with just a handful of ingredients and the perfectly balanced creamy tahini dressing as a perfect companion. I like to serve this dish over hot cooked basmati rice just to ensure that no delicious sauce gets left on the plate.

To make this Tahini-Dressed Chicken with Squash and Kale, you will need the following ingredients:
