This dish took almost two hours to put together including cooking time. I had to breakdown chicken leg (4) and a whole breast so the dish should take 1.5 hours if you use chicken thighs.
I omitted the currants (my bf doesn't eat them) and the greek yogurt garnish. The fresh herb mix (parsley, dill and cilantro) is a must, it really makes the dish.

The rice and chicken were delicious, not too greasy, very flavourful and great for leftovers. I served this with a kale salad.

I would make this again, no changes.

Simple to make. The combo of butternut squash, za'atar & tahini are really good together.

-I peeled the squash before roasting it
- I didn't use pine nuts, subbed in roasted almonds instead
