Chicken Parmesan Spaghetti Squash Recipe




Chicken Parmesan Spaghetti Squash Recipe

Ingredients :
1 medium spaghetti squash
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, plus more for topping
1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano or 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon minced fresh basil or 3/4 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 jar (14 ounces) pasta sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Halve squash lengthwise; discard seeds. Place squash on a microwave-safe plate, cut side down; microwave on high until tender, about 15 minutes. Cool slightly.
Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with parsley, oregano and basil. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 7-9 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165°. Stir in pasta sauce; sprinkle with cheeses. Cover and cook until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes.
Separate strands of squash with a fork. Serve with chicken and sauce. If desired, top with chopped parsley.

Health tip :
Cup for cup, spaghetti squash is lower in carbs than white pasta, but it’s also higher in fiber and vitamin C.
Test Kitchen tips :
Change up this recipe by using Alfredo sauce instead of a tomato-based sauce.
It's OK if the squash halves overlap while cooking in the microwave.
