- Next gently toss the squash with olive oil, honey, salt and pepper in a bowl.
- Place the chicken and squash on a baking sheet with the chicken at one end and the butternut squash at another. Cover the chicken with the sticky sauce, but make sure to leave a small amount for serving.
- Place the chicken and squash in the oven and cook for 25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the squash is soft and tender.
