- Reduce heat to medium. Add onion; cook until softened, about 7 minutes. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes more. Add squash; wine, 2 tablespoons parsley and 2 teaspoons tarragon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until squash are soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.

This dish was easy to prepare and the chicken had excellent flavor. Though a bit to much liquid for my personal taste, a great meal to impress.
