tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Halve lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds, then medium dice. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. 

Roast the squash
2 Roast the squash

Place the diced squash on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 17 to 19 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Cook the rice
3 Cook the rice

Meanwhile, in a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

4 Start the chicken & sauce

Once the squash has roasted about 10 minutes, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Add the tomato paste, tomato chutney, and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add 1/2 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat.
