Peel the butternut squash and cut it into small cubed pieces.
Add the cubed butternut squash on a baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake at 425 degrees for approximately 30-40 minutes, or until they are soft and tender, tossing them halfway through.
Remove them from the oven and reduce the heat of the oven to 400 degrees.
Prepare the meal:
When the butternut squash are ready, add them to a medium sized bowl with the remaining ingredients and gently stir until everything is combined.
Transfer the mixture back to the baking pan lined with parchment paper and spread evenly.
Return the baking pan to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees, tossing at least once halfway through, taking care not to burn them.
Remove from oven and garnish with additional pecans and/or chopped chives.
