    *Chicken Skewers:*
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 400g lean chicken breast, diced
  • Pre soaked bamboo skewers
  • *Roast Vegetable Salad:*
  • 500g Kent pumpkin, skin on
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 red capsicum, halved, seeded, thickly sliced lengthways
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed
  • 200g rocket
  • 120g pomegranate arils (seeds) (about 1/2 pomegranate)
  • *Pomegranate dressing:*
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate arils (seeds)
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
???In a bowl, combine garlic, ginger, turmeric, cumin, coriander, lemon zest
and olive oil. Add chicken and mix until well coated.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

Cut pumpkin into chunks, red onion into quarters and capsicum into thick
slices. Spread vegetables out onto prepared baking tray and drizzle with 1
teaspoon olive oil. Roast for 30 minutes or until vegetables have
caramelised and are cooked through.

On a separate baking tray, spread the asparagus and drizzle with 1 teaspoon
olive oil. Roast for 15 minutes or until cooked through.

While vegetables are roasting, thread chicken onto skewers.

Pan fry, grill or BBQ chicken skewers for 4-5 minutes each side or until
chicken is browned and cooked through. Keep warm.

To make pomegranate dressing, place the garlic, pomegranate molasses, lemon
juice, pomegranate arils, maple syrup and olive oil into a small food
processor and blitz until smooth.

Put the rocket, vegetables and pomegranate arils into a large salad bowl.
Drizzle with pomegranate dressing and toss to combine.

Serve chicken skewers with roasted vegetable salad.
