NME Turmeric Chicken, Squash & Asparagus

4 Servings 45 Minutes


1 Acorn Squash (large)

1 tbsp Coconut Oil

1 lb Extra Lean Ground Chicken Or Turkey

2 tsp Turmeric

1/2 tsp Sea Salt (divided)

4 cups Asparagus (woody ends trimmed)

1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Slice the acorn squash in half, and place flesh-side down on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground chicken/turkey, breaking it up as it cooks. Once it is cooked through, add the turmeric and half of the sea salt. Turn off the heat, mix well and set aside.

  4. Toss the asparagus with olive oil, and season with remaining sea salt.

  5. Remove the acorn squash from the oven and push to the side of the baking sheet. Add the asparagus to the sheet, and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until asparagus is tender and squash is cooked through. Remove from the oven.

  6. Divide the squash, asparagus and chicken/turkey between plates or containers. Enjoy!
