Marinated chicken

Roasted butternut

  • 800g butternut squash, peeled, deseeded, and diced
  • 50ml olive oil
  • salt


  • 85g pomegranate seeds
  • 80g feta, crumbled
  • 50g spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 20g fresh coriander, chopped
  • 200g pearl (giant) couscous


Whisk the Ponzu sauce, ginger, and garlic together. Place chicken breast in the marinade. Allow to marinate for at least 10 minutes, preferably for 30.

Preheat oven to 200C. Toss the butternut squash with oil and salt. Roast for 15 min. Add the marinated chicken to the oven and roast for another 15-20 min. The butternut should be soft and caramelized; and the chicken should be cooked through.

Prepare garnishes: chop spring onions and coriander, crumble feta. Cook the pearl couscous according to manufacturer instructions. It typically needs 10-12 minutes. Drain couscous, toss it with roasted butternut and all garnishes. Serve chicken sliced on top.
