Ingredients

  • 3 lb spaghetti squash
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil divided
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenders cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ½ teaspoon basil
  • ¼ teaspoon of oregano
  • 10 ½ oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup low or no-sodium chicken broth
  • 8 ounces fresh spinach
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Using a large knife, slice the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise down the middle.
  • Use a spoon to scrape the pulp out and remove the seeds.
  • Place the squash, open side down on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes. It is done when you can stick a fork easily into it.
  • Optional - You can cook the entire spaghetti squash for an hour and then cut it in half and scoop out the seed and center strings.
  • Leave the squash in the skin and scrape each half with a fork to create the stringy squash.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook 4 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • Heat another tablespoon of coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes or until soft, stirring frequently.
  • Stir in mushrooms, basil and oregano and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the wine to the pan and cook for 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates, stirring often.
  • Add the chicken, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, and spinach to pan.
  • Cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, stirring constantly.
  • Lastly stir in ¼ cup cheese.
  • Place about ¼ of spaghetti squash onto a plate and top with about 1 cup of the chicken mixture on top.
  • ENJOY!!
