Indian Paleo Chicken with Broccoli, Almonds and Butternut Squash Puree




Indian Chicken
3.5 lbs       Chicken Quarters on the Bone
2 tsp.         Yellow Curry
1 tsp.         salt
1/2 tsp.      pepper
2 Tbsp.      Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Broccoli with Almonds
1.5# lbs.     Broccoli
3 oz.          Almonds
3               Cloves Garlic
1 tsp.         Salt 
1 Tbsp.      Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Butternut Squash Puree
1.5 lbs        Butternut Squash
1/4 cups     Coconut Milk
1/4 tsp.       Nutmeg
1 tsp           Cumin
1/2 Tbsp.    Salt
1/2 tsp.       Pepper


For Chicken
Lay out chicken quarters on paper towel and pat dry.  Season with salt.  Heat oil at medium heat and curry and pepper to toast spices.  Immediately when they become aromatic, add chicken quarters and pan sear to golden brown.  Turn chicken to brown on both sides.  Finish in oven preheated to 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Check for doneness by stabbing underside of chicken as liquid from chicken should run clear.  Let rest for 5-10 minutes and serve.

For Broccoli with Almonds
Boil a pot of water to blanch (partially cook) broccoli.  Cut broccoli into desire size florets.  When at a rolling boil, add broccoli and blanch for 1 minute.  Remove with a strainer and shock (stop cooking) in ice water.  Reserve for saute.  Heat olive oil to medium-high heat and saute finely-chopped garlic until light brown and add broccoli florets and almonds.  Season with Salt.

For Butternut Squash Puree
Split squash lengthwise and clean out seeds.  With a vegetable peeler or sharp knife, remove skin.  Cut into 1 inch pieces and add to a pot of water with a pinch of salt.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat and let simmer until squash softens and breaks with a fork.  Drain water and add squash to a food processor with coconut milk, nutmeg, cumin, salt and pepper to taste.  Puree till smooth and pour out on a baking sheet to cool or serve immediately.
