  • Combine chicken thighs, butternut squash, onion, chicken stock, paprika, garlic, salt, marjoram, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, and pepper in an enameled cast iron Dutch oven. Pour tomatoes on top.

  • Bake, covered, in the preheated oven until chicken is tender, about 1 hour 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until most of the butternut squash has melted into the sauce, about 30 minutes more. Shred chicken with 2 forks.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute 1 teaspoon dried thyme for the marjoram if desired.

You can make this in a slow cooker too; cook on Low for 6 to 7 hours.
