Wendell's Squash with Chicken

Wendell bought a new recipe book called Hawaii's Ohana Cookbook which includes recipes gathered by the Star Advertiser and edited by Joleen Oshiro and Betty Shimabukuro.  He got it at Costco for $10.99.

Here's Wendell's first dish from the book.  It's on page 60 and is actually called "Hyotan with Gingery Garlic Chicken", originally submitted by Cynthia Pratt.  It was veeeeery flavorful.


2 lbs. boneless chicken thighs, sliced
2 tbs. ginger, minced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
4 pounds long squash, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1/2 c. chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
green onions and cilantro, chopped for garnish

Combine the chicken, ginger, garlic and salt.  Saute in oil in deep pot for about 5 minutes.  Add broth. Cover and simmer for another 5 minutes.  Layer squash on top of the chicken.  Cover and simmer 15 minutes.  Stir gently and season with additional salt and pepper.  Garnish with green onions and cilantro.  Serves 6.
