Soy roast chicken with butternut squash and peppers...

I can't believe it's been so long since I wrote anything here.... And it's not like I'm not cooking, as that's what I mainly do at the moment, being a chef an all! ;) Working in the kitchen has completely changed my life - for better, for so much better! :D Unfortunately that means a little bit less of cooking and baking at home, as I come back so exhousted that I usually just collapse on the couch  - but that's what happens when you get up at 4.40 am to be at work at 6 am.... Still, wouldn't change it for anything in the world! But back to today's post, as I'll write you all about my new, DREAM job very soon (yes, I made that promise and commitment to myself and all of you reading my little blog, that I'll make time for more cooking, photographing and mostly - writing! So I promise NOT to abandon you like that anymore, never again :) )

Those who visit my little kitchen here, know that chicken is one of my favorite meats out there, cheap, so versatile and most of time quick to prepare and cook. As we took advantage of some good prices we bought 3 whole birds and cut it into portions - legs, breasts, wings (which I'm collecting in a little bag, to later marinade and grill!), carcasses (which ended up making a beautiful stock, which is in the freezer waiting for its turn).

I came across this recipe by coincidence. I received a book for review and was simply flipping through the pages, getting a "feel" of the book itself, the recipes and general style. This popped out, don't know why, but it did. I loved the colours of the dish, the fact that it's "all in one pot" kind of dish and quite simply to make. Simply - ticked all the right boxes for me, at that time ;)
The recipe comes from "Healthy speedy suppers" by Katriona Macgregor, I've changed the recipe ever so slightly. Kationa wrote a great little cookbook, which I'll be telling you all about very soon :)
