I made this tonight and it was effing fantastic!!


400g or 14 oz cooked chicken breast

1 medium onion, chopped

1 (2 1/2 pound) butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cubed

6 cloves garlic, crushed

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon water, or as needed

3 eggs

3/4 cup 2% plain greek yogurt or sour cream

1 cup grated mild cheddar cheese

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Pre-Directions: Recipe calls for cooked chicken breast. I put mine in the crockpot on low for 8 hours before I made the casserole so I would have chicken breast ready when I got home from work. Just a suggestion!

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
2. Heat and stir onions in the hot oil until softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in squash and garlic; season with salt. Cook squash mixture, stirring occasionally, until squash is slightly tender, about 10 minutes. Add water if mixture gets too dry. Transfer squash mixture to the prepared casserole dish.
3. Add shredded cooked chicken breast to casserole dish
3. Lightly whisk eggs in a bowl; stir in yogurt/sour cream, cheddar cheese, and black pepper. Pour egg mixture over squash mixture; top with mozzarella cheese.
4. Bake in the preheated oven until squash is tender and mozzarella cheese is bubbling, about 30 minutes.
