Curried Butternut Squash and Chicken

A couple weeks ago during a school training my coworker told me he was planning on running a half marathon in December and recommended I run it with him. That makes two of the five math teachers in my department running half marathons in December, so I how could I refuse. I hadn't wanted to start training since it's been so hot, but seeing how time presses on regardless I decided I had no choice and started today. I rode my bike to a nice running path and ran about three miles. Way to go! I decided that I might want to start eating more healthily as well. Here's my first attempt (notice the complete absence of beer in the picture... dammit...):

Curried Butternut Squash and Chicken

1 tbsp Ghee
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Coriander
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 tsp Cinnamon
Dash Ground Nutmeg
Spoonful of Honey
1 Butternut Squash, peeled and cut into smallish cubes
1/4 Onion cut into medium chunks
1 Green Bell Pepper diced
1 Chicken Breast cut similarly to the Squash

Fry spices in Ghee. Add the Squash, Onion, Honey and about a half cup of Water and let cook until the Squash is soft. Add the Green Bell Pepper and Chicken and simmer until Chicken is fully cooked. Salt and Pepper nicely. Serve with Couscous.

Pretty darn tasty if I do say so myself.
