Fried Chicken with Squash Pickle

Right, I’m determined to get back up to date with this lot, it’s Easter weekend so I’ll only fall behind again. Here goes…

Mr S spied this one, the ‘fried chicken’ bit would definitely have caught his eye. I made this with his help after sleeping for most of the day yet again.

Preheat the oven to 190ºc (fan)

Cut up a butternut squash, some into slices, some into cubes.

Season bone-in skin-on chicken breasts. Get a frying pan up high and add butter and oil, fry the chicken skin side down first for 2 minutes, then the same on the other side. Transfer to a baking dish and add the slices of squash. Pop in the oven until cooked through, our chicken was HUGE so took almost 20 minutes.

Melt butter in a pan and add finely chopped shallot and garlic, along with the squash cubes. Cook for a few minutes then add caster sugar, let it start to caramelise then add a bit of water, grated ginger, turmeric, fenugreek seeds and black onion seeds.

Leave it to cook for a bit then add a little more water, finely chopped chilli, coriander and a good bit of salt.

I left mine on the hob on a gentle heat until the chicken was ready. When ready to serve, add mango chutney.
