Preheat your oven to 375°F.
Cut you squash in half, remove seeds and strings with a spoon and brush the insides generously with olive oil. Bake face down in a baking dish for 45 minutes – 1 hour.
Meanwhile, cover and pound chicken breasts with a meat tenderizer. Then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a large skillet Add the chicken and brown about 3 minutes on each side. Turn off the flame. Remove chicken to a plate, cover and set aside.
Then add the diced tomatoes to the oil in the skillet, bring to a boil and simmer about 30 minutes. The tomatoes will break down as they simmer. Stir occasionally, crushing the tomatoes with a fork.
