  • Summary

    A paillard is simply a skinless, boneless chicken-breast half that you butterfly and pound thin. It's one of the speediest routes to a lean meal: While you prep and saute it, roast some squash and red onion, then place it on top with fresh spinach and crisp fried sage.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 small kabocha squash, unpeeled, seeded and cut lengthwise into 3/4-inch slices
    • 1 small red onion, cut into wedges, root end attached
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • Kosher salt
    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken-breast halves (4 to 5 ounces each), butterflied
    • Red-pepper flakes
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 16 fresh sage leaves (from about 4 sprigs)
    • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
