Make

  1. Heat oven to 450F / 232C.
  2. Toss onions, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and garlic with cooking oil (portion for the chicken), ginger, (portion for chicken) and then with remaining half of spice mix. Spread out on a sheet pan. Roast in the oven until potatoes are starting to soften slightly, 25 to 30 minutes, shaking the pan halfway through.
  3. While vegetables are roasting, heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add oil (portion for chutney) and then ginger (portion for chutney) and red pepper flakes. Saute until fragrant, ~1 minute. Add apples and vinegar and simmer until apples are soft, 5 to 7 minutes (add a splash of water if the pan starts to look dry). Set aside.
  4. Return to vegetables. When sweet potatoes are starting to soften, remove pan from oven. Place chicken on top of vegetables. Return pan to oven and continue cooking chicken and vegetables together until chicken is cooked through and vegetables turn tender. Chicken should be finished in 12 to 16 minutes.
  5. Reheat cauliflower rice in the microwave.
  6. Squeeze a couple of lime wedges over chicken and vegetables.
  7. Serve chicken and vegetables over cauliflower rice with apple chutney on top. Serve with lime wedges. Enjoy.

Turned out great. Make sure to use extra broth and cook the lentils before adding the beans/veggies. Blend the lentils to make it a more curry-like consistency.

We enjoyed this a lot. Made coconut rice, and more than recommended, and used double the amount of cauliflower (not pre-cooked as we like it a little crunchy). A good easy lentil curry when you don't have to much time.

Thought this was ok, but lacked flavor. We had lots of leftovers and didn't eat much of them
