  • Place spiralized butternut squash in a bowl; add 1 tablespoon oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat and transfer to a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until just tender, 7 to 10 minutes.

  • Heat butter and remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sprinkle both sides with Moroccan spice, salt, and pepper to taste. Cover pan and cook, turning occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.

  • Add orange juice, apricots, cranberries, and dates to the same saute pan over medium heat. Cook and stir until orange juice thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Add almonds and toss to coat. Remove topping from heat.

  • Plate each portion with butternut squash, cooked rice, chicken, and topping.

Cook's Note:

If you don't have a spiralizer, you can roast the squash and cut it into cubes instead.

My husband said this is the best meal I ve ever made. It was simple and very tasty. I had to make a couple changes just because I don t have a spiralizer and couldn t find the Moroccan slice ingredient in my area. I cubed a squash and baked it in the oven with olive oil and salt and pepper these toppings were per the recipe for 25m until tender. Then I had to make my own Moroccan spice mix from a recipe online: Read More

Could not find Moroccan Spice in my grocery store so I bought Jamaican and it substituted nicely. Cubed the chicken and squash. Added some cinnamon and ginger to the squash pre-baking a can of Bush s black bean fiesta and doubled the topping. Fantastic flavors!! Read More
