    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    This delicious recipe is really fast to put together, especially if your local store sells cut pre-cut butternut squash, it can easily be adapted for vegetarians by using cooked or canned chickpeas instead of the chicken.

    1. 1
      Heat oil in a dutch oven or heavy pot over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden, for about 8 minutes. Raise the heat to medium high and stir in the garlic. Cook until it becomes fragrant, for about 1 minute.
    2. 2
      Stir the cumin and the other spices into the onions. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the chicken pieces and coat with the spices.
    3. 3
      Add 1 cup of water, and stir well to remove spices from the bottom of the pan. Add squash, olives, and prunes; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 10-15 minutes or until squash is tender. Taste for salt. Garnish with cilantro and parsley. Serve with Basic Couscous.

      Ooh, loved this, much easier than it might initially look! Other than leaving out prunes (just didn't fancy them!! sorry!), I made this as directed, the olives are a lovely touch, this is a very satisfying dish and so easily prepared. Even better next day ;) As suggested, served with couscous, excellent choice with this recipe. Yum, loved it, thank you Elizabeth, made for PRMR tag game
