Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place 2 tbsp of butter (double for 4 portions) in a bowl and leave at room temperature to soften. Zest and juice the lemon. Peel the butternut squash, cut in half lengthwise and discard the stem and seeds; medium dice the squash. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the Brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise (or quarter if large). Peel, halve and mince the shallot. Pick the tarragon leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves.

Roast the vegetables
On a lined sheet pan, toss the squash and Brussels sprouts with a drizzle of olive oil; season with the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast, turning halfway through, 20 to 24 minutes, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer to a serving dish and set aside in a warm spot.

Cook the chicken
While the vegetables roast, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with S&P. Add the chicken to the pan and cook, partially covered, 7 to 10 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Prepare the tarragon butter
While the chicken cooks, in a small bowl, combine the butter, Dijon mustard, tarragon, as much of the lemon zest and lemon juice as you’d like and as much of the shallot as you’d like; season with S&P to taste.
