  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  2. Aluminum foil can be used to line a large baking sheet.
  3. Mix 2 tablespoons of oil, paprika and salt in a large bowl. Add 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the butternut squash. Toss the butternut squash with two spatulas, or your hands. Place the squash in one layer on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake for between 30 and 35 minutes or until tender. Stir halfway through.
  5. In a large plastic bag that can be resealable, place the Sriracha, remaining 2 teaspoons oil, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the chicken. Use your hands to push the chicken around in the bag. Allow standing for about 10 to 15 minutes. You can also refrigerate the chicken for up to 24 hrs.
  6. Cook the chicken in a large nonstick skillet for 8-10 minutes. The marinade should be boiled for at most 5 minutes. This will kill harmful bacteria.
  7. Serve with butternut squash.
