Get in my Belly! Curried-Chicken and Vegetable Pan Roast

This is the perfect fall meal. And it is digesting in my belly right now. My very full belly. Is it really that good you ask? My husband asked if we could have it again tomorrow night. Yep. It's that good. The flavors explode in your mouth.

Food & Wine Magazine published this recipe in their What to Cook Next section in an article, How to Feed 12 People Fast. The recipe was created by Grace Parisi. (Thank you Grace!)

Prep time, 75 minutes - prep/cook. Serves 12 and is a fairly healthy recipe. Can be made ahead.
         1. 2 pounds butternut squash in 1-inch cubes (from one 2 1/2-pound squash)
         2. 1 1/2 pounds brussels sprouts, halved
         3. 2 large red onions, cut into thin wedges
         4. 1 cup canola oil
         5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
         6. 1 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt, plus more for serving
         7. 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
         8. 2 large garlic cloves, minced
         9. 1 tablespoon Madras curry powder
        10. 4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
        11. Warm naan, for serving


   1. Preheat the oven to 450° and position racks in the upper and middle thirds. In a very large bowl, toss the butternut squash with the brussels sprouts, onion wedges and 1/2 cup of the canola oil; season with salt and pepper. Spread the vegetables on 2 large, sturdy rimmed baking sheets.

   2. In the same bowl, combine the cup of yogurt with the ginger, garlic, curry powder and the remaining 1/2 cup of oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken and toss until thoroughly coated. Arrange the chicken on top of the vegetables. Roast for about 40 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through, until the vegetables are nearly tender and the chicken is nearly cooked through. Pour off any accumulated liquid in the pans and roast for about 20 minutes longer, until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is lightly browned. Transfer the chicken and vegetables to a platter and serve with warm naan and yogurt.

Make Ahead
The chicken and vegetables can be refrigerated overnight. Reheat gently before serving.
