4 boneless chicken breasts
800 g butternut squash
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
1 bunch of green onions
400 g asparagus
150 g Greek yogurt
1 lemon
1/2 bunch of basil
50 g roasted hazelnuts
1/4 bunch of parsley
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F). Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish and drizzle with 1 Tbsp of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
While the chicken is cooking, peel and cut the butternut squash into 3cm cubes. After the chicken has cooked for 15 minutes, add the butternut squash to the baking dish, tossing to combine. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
Trim the asparagus and cut the green onions into 5cm lengths. After the chicken and squash have cooked for 20 minutes, add the asparagus and green onions to the baking dish, tossing gently. Drizzle with the remaining 1 Tbsp of olive oil, and roast for another 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
In a small bowl, combine the Greek yogurt with the zest and juice of the lemon. Finely chop the basil and add it to the yogurt, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
Roughly chop the roasted hazelnuts and parsley. Once the chicken and vegetables are done, remove from the oven. Drizzle the lemon-basil yogurt over the top, and garnish with the chopped hazelnuts and parsley. Serve immediately.
