Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/Fan 180ºC.
  2. Put the butternut squash, carrots, onion, cumin, coriander, orange juice, zest and oil in a large roasting tin and mix thoroughly. Roast for 25 minutes, until the vegetables begin to soften.
  3. Place the chicken and apricots on top of the vegetables and roast for a further 15–20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the couscous and cook for 8–10 minutes or until softened.
  5. Divide the couscous among four plates and top with the chicken and vegetables. Season with pepper and serve.

For a vegetarian version, swap the chicken for a 400g can of chickpeas
