  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. Place a layer of potatoes in the bottom of the prepared baking dish, followed by a layer of onion, a chicken breast, and a layer of squash. Repeat layers, season with salt and pepper, and dot the casserole with the butter pieces.
  3. Cover the dish with foil or a lid, and bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, until the casserole is bubbling, the vegetables are tender, and the chicken is no longer pink inside. Uncover the dish and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, until the vegetables are starting to brown. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

As other reviews had suggested, I poured about 7 ounces of chicken broth over the top of the dish before baking it. I also added a little bit of fresh dill.... tasted GREAT (with a little bit of salt, too). To help make sure the potatoes and chicken were fully cooked, I sliced the potatoes thinly AND sliced my chicken breast halves in half. I admit that after I cooked the chicken at 350 for 45 minutes, I still had to increase the temp to 400 for an additional 30 minutes! I have plenty of squash in my garden, and I'm always looking for different recipes to use them in so they don't go to waste! It seemed to be a hit with the hubby and kids. I'll be making this again, experimenting with different herbs and spices!

After reading previous reviews I decided to marinate the chicken in Italian dressing to add flavor, I also added a little bit of chicken broth at the bottom of the pan. I cooked as directions said exactly otherwise, after 1 hour in the over my chicken was still completely raw in the middle, so I upped the oven to 400 for another 20-30min. The pototoes were still hard so I had to throw them out, my chicken was dried out, about the only thing that was good was the squash. I served with sauteed asparagus. I might try again but change it up a lot, otherwise I didn't like this at all.

indeed, twas a little bland. I substituted potatoes with tomatoes and added 1/4 cup of chicken broth and added a bit of salt, pepper and mixed herbs at the top. Will be making this one again! :)
