Spaghetti Squash Chicken Alfredo

Ingredients:

  • 2 large spaghetti squashes
  • 1 lb skinless chicken breast
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 c. half and half
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 c. Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 4 tbsp. shredded Mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Step 1

Carefully cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the seeds. Then, place the squash cut-side down and poke holes in the skin. Microwave on high for 10 minutes or until tender.  

Step 2

Meanwhile, dice the chicken breast into 1” pieces and season with salt and pepper. Cook the chicken to your liking, whether it’s by boiling, baking, with an air fryer, or simply in a pan on the stovetop.

Step 3

Next, in a small saucepan on medium-low heat, bring butter and half-and-half to a simmer and leave for about 5 minutes, then whisk in parmesan cheese. Afterwards, remove from heat and set aside.

Step 4

Carefully scrape the inside of each squash half with a fork to separate into strands. Mix in the sauce and chicken until combined. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and broil for 1-2 minutes in the oven until bubbly. Finally, serve and enjoy!
