BUFFALO CHICKEN SPAGHETTI SQUASH BAKE

  
Ingredients:

  • 1 Large Spaghetti Squash ( or 2 Small )
  • Franks Hot Sauce
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Garlic Powder
  • Crumbled Goat Cheese
  • 2 organic boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Organic American Cheese Slices (I used Trader Joe’s brand) Or Mozzarella
  • 1 Large and 1 Small Bowl
  • Baking Dish
  • Aluminum Foil (Optional)
  • Nonstick Coconut Oil Spray

Directions:

  1. Rinse spaghetti squash and stab to allow air to vent. I cook my spaghetti squash in the microwave because it cuts the cooking time in half! Typically 5 minutes of each side does the trick.
  2. Carefully remove squash with an oven mitt and let sit to cool (it will be hot!!).
  3. Marinate chicken in hot sauce and grill until desired. Do not over cook chicken because it will be going in the oven later!   
  4. Once squash is cool enough, cut in half and scoop seeds.
  5. Rake squash with a fork in a large bowl and combine with 1/4 cup of crumbled goat cheese, 1 tbsp of olive oil, and garlic powder.   
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking dish with aluminum foil and/or nonstick cooking spray.
  7. Dice chicken breasts and toss with hot sauce in small bowl (hot sauce amount as desired).
  8. Add chicken to the large bowl of spaghetti squash and drizzle with hot sauce.
  9. Pour into baking dish and bake on 350 for 15 minutes.
  10. Carefully remove dish from oven and top with 1 slice of sliced cheese.
  11.  Broil until cheese melts and bubbles. 
  12. Remove from oven. Let sit to cool and serve!
