    Cook the Chicken

    Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan. Cover and cook until browned, 5-7 minutes. Flip, and sprinkle with seasoning blend. Cover again and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil. Wipe pan clean and reserve. While chicken cooks, cook butternut squash.
