A favorite fall-flavored recipe in our house is my quick and easy Roasted Chicken Sausage and Butternut Squash.
Roasted Chicken and Butternut Squash is a satisfying and flavorful dish that’s perfect when squash is in season and I’m trying to use the last of my garden herbs before the first snowfall. You can purchase a two-pound bag of peeled and cubed butternut squash at Costco, which reduces the prep time on this recipe to about five minutes!
I prepared this recipe on camera with the Good Day LA crew in our airstream trailer! Watch the clip here for some tips on peeling butternut squash (and a few laughs as the on-air talent didn’t know a thing about cooking!).
