Sesame Chicken with Roasted Butternut Squash
Course – Dinner, Main Course
Cuisine – Asian
1 chicken leg quarter (tofu for vegetarian option)
1/2 cup of plain yogurt (or sour cream)
½ teaspoon of curry paste
1 teaspoon of paprika
zest and juice of 1/4 lemon
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon of sesame seeds
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Pat the chicken dry on both sides and make cuts in the flesh at ½” intervals with a sharp knife.
In a bowl mix the yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, paprika, crushed garlic, a pinch of salt, and curry paste till the mixture is smooth and uniform. Spoon and rub the mixture on the chicken all over and under the skin generously. Let it marinate for a couple of hours (preferably 24 hours in the refrigerator).
When ready to cook, line the baking sheet with foil and parchment paper and brush it with oil. Place the chicken on the baking sheet and sprinkle with sesame seeds to cover the top.
Cut the butternut squash into ¾ inch thick circles if big and in half lengthwise if small (pear size). Peel the squash and place it on the same baking sheet and brush it with oil generously and sprinkle with salt to taste and garlic powder. Place in the oven and roast for 40-50 minutes. Check the chicken and the squash for readiness (the chicken needs to register at least 165F degrees and squash needs to be soft when poked with a fork). Plate, garnish and serve.
