    I made this tonight – it is AMAZING! Absolutely love it. Super simple to put together, awesome “presentation value”, great flavors, and healthy to boot! Thank you so much for posting!!

      It just won’t be “as clean”. When cranberries come in season maybe you can pick some up and freeze.

    This looks amazing. I will be putting it on my grocery list today. What side dish do you recommend serving it with? my husband has to have a side dish with it?

    We tried this at Thanksgiving…my only modification is that I added a bit more chicken than it called for. To tell you the truth the only flavor I got was the squash. So when leftover time came I added a good bit more cinnamon, some butter, and some maple syrup. That made it great. Also was good with cranberry sauce on the side. My suggestion is to ramp up the spices and add some butter or coconut oil. :) happy eating

    Do you think I could substitute pumpkin for the butternut squash? I have a few more sugar pumpkins from my garden to use up and we already finished eating all of our butternuts from the Fall.

    I am currently making this and it looks very “soupy”. I’ve had it on for the alloted amount of time, is there any reason you can think of it would do this?

  7. Becky says

    Substituted green apples for the pears, only because that’s what I had on hand and still went well with the dish. Threw in a sprig of Rosemary as well. Next time I think I will put in whole cloves of garlic.
    Thanks for sharing!

  8. Shannon says

    Yes it cooked. I just cooked it for a bit longer, close to 10 hours? Tastes fine just wasn’t expecting the consistency. :)
