    Pete’s Butternut Squash Chicken Curry

    Serves 4
    Ingredients
    425g/½ butternut squash
    1 onion, chopped
    1tsp “very lazy” garlic
    1tsp “very Lazy” ginger
    1tsp cumin
    1tsp turmeric
    1tsp coriander
    1tsp garam masala
    1tsp madras curry powder
    1Kg chicken, pre-cooked, chopped into cubes
    750mL chicken stock
    400g Chopped Tomatoes

    Method

    (This can be made in advance.)
    Chop up the butternut squash into small cubes; leave the skin on, extra fibre!

    Spray a large saucepan with Fry Light and add chopped onion, ginger & garlic, cook for 7 mins.

    Add butternut squash, madras curry powder and chicken stock, cook for 40 mins, with a lid on the pan, remove from the heat and liquidize with a hand blender.

    Continue.

    Place back on heat and add cumin, turmeric and coriander, cook for 1 min, add tomato and chicken, cook for 20 mins or until chicken has been cooked through. Add garam masala 5 min before serving.
    Serve on a bed of rice with a side salad.

    I agree- the risotto recipe in the extra easy cookbook is delicious - butternut squash with bacon. I've used lean ham or had a vegetarian version too. I've just made a big stock pot full of soup and I add lots of root vegetables with the squash.
