Preparation

Roast the squash
Preheat the oven to 450°F. On a lined sheet pan, toss the squash with a drizzle of oil; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, stirring halfway through, 15 to 18 minutes, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork.

Cook the chicken
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 2 to 3 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot.

Toast the naan
While the chicken cooks, zest and quarter the lemon. Place the naan directly on the oven rack and toast in the oven, 5 to 7 minutes, until warmed through. Transfer to a cutting board and drizzle with oil. Cut the naan into wedges and sprinkle with ½ the lemon zest (or as much as you’d like); season with S&P to taste.

Make the cucumber salad
While the naan toasts, cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise; using the palms of your hands, gently smash down the cucumber halves until slightly flattened and slice on an angle into 1-inch pieces. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. In a large bowl, combine the cucumbers, vinegar, ½ the ginger, ½ the parsley, as much of the remaining lemon zest as you’d like and 2 tbsp of oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste.

Make the yogurt sauce & serve
In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, juice from ½ the lemon wedges and remaining ginger; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. Divide the roasted chicken and squash between your plates and drizzle with as much of the yogurt sauce as you’d like. Garnish with the remaining parsley and lemon wedges. Serve the cucumber salad and toasted naan on the side. Bon appétit!
