Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan heat oil over medium heat. Add shallot; cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add broth, squash and barley. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes or just until squash and barley are tender, stirring once or twice. Stir in apple. Cook, covered, for 3 to 4 minutes more or just until apple is tender. Remove from heat.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine coriander, cumin, salt, turmeric and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle mixture evenly over chicken. Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray.

  • Coat an unheated grill pan or large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add chicken. Cook for 8 to 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in chicken registers 165 degrees F, turning once. Remove chicken from pan. Slice chicken.

  • Add pumpkin seeds to barley mixture; stir until combined. Snip any large pieces of chutney. In a small bowl stir together chutney and yogurt. To serve, divide barley mixture among four serving bowls or plates. Top with chicken and parsley. Serve with chutney mixture.
