Help Your Body By Eating

Our bodies have many issues that can bring it down. One of those is digestion, when our stomache hurts the whole world seems to be wrong. I mean look at the word stomache the word ache is very visual. The ingredients in this easy Indian dish will aid our digestion system

150ml bio-yogurt
1 tbsp finely grated ginger
½ tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground cumin
4 skinless chicken thighs fillets (about 250g), cut into big chunks
200g butternut squash, cut into bite-sized chunks (no need to peel)
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 red onions, halved and thickly sliced
1 garlic clove
4 sprigs mint
, leaves picked
25g coriander, chopped
300g can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
grated zest and juice ½ lime
1 head of chicory
, thickly sliced

Put 2 tbsp of the yogurt in a bowl with the spices, chicken and a really good grinding of black pepper, and set aside for 30 mins, or longer if you have time, to marinate.
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Arrange the squash on a large baking tray, crumble over the coconut oil (as it will be solid at this stage) and roast for 20 mins. Add the onions and chicken, spaced apart, and roast for 20 mins more until everything is cooked.
Meanwhile, put the rest of the yogurt in a bowl with the garlic, mint and two-thirds of the coriander, and blitz with a hand blender until smooth. Tip the beans and remaining coriander into a bowl, and add the lime zest and juice with a couple of tbsp of the yogurt dressing. Tip in the squash, onions and chicken, add the chicory and toss everything together. Pile onto plates and drizzle with the remaining dressing. (If eating cold as a packed lunch, take the dressing in a pot and dress the salad when ready to eat.)
