  • 1 butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and cubed
  • 1 large aubergine, cubed
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 3 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 4 tbsp fresh breadcrumbs
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 300g cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • handful coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • lime wedges, to serve


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a large, shallow roasting tin, toss the squash and aubergine in the oil, then season and spread out in a single layer. Roast for 30 mins, turning once.

  2. On a plate, mix the coconut and breadcrumbs with some seasoning. Dip the chicken breasts in the egg, then press in the crumbs to coat, shaking off any excess.

  3. Toss the tomatoes and curry paste in with the roasted veg and give everything a good stir. Nestle the chicken breasts in the veg and pop back in the oven for a further 25-30 mins until the chicken is cooked through, shaking the pan once or twice. Sprinkle over the coriander and serve with lime wedges to squeeze over.
