One of David & I’s favourite dinners at the moment. Perfect for using up those leftovers.

Salt & pepper
400g tin chickpeas
300g (ish) leftover roast chicken – dark or light – shredded

- Preheat the oven to 200 oC. Toss the squash with salt, pepper, olive oil and the smoked paprika. Roast for 30 mins or so until slightly caramelised.
