Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash.
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive oil for brushing.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

For the buffalo chicken

  • 2 (5oz) cans of chicken breasts *
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise. ,used light.
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce any of your choice.
  • 1.5 cup cheese any kind you like, I used mozzarella.

Instructions

  • Cut the spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
  • Line your baking sheet with foil and brush with olive oil.
  • Brush the squash with more olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Put the baking sheet in a cold oven and turn the heat on setting the temperature to 450F.
  • Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes or might be even less depending on the quash size, so you might want to check it even sooner.
  • Meanwhile, in a deep bowl, combine mayo, sour cream and hot sauce, then add the chicken. Drain well if using the canned chicken.
  • After the squash is done, scrape with a fork to get the strands loose then add some of the chicken mixture and mix with the squash strands.
  • Top with mozzarella cheese and put back in the oven - this time reduce the heat to 350F- until bubbly and golden brown on top.
  • Enjoy!!

Notes

* You can use any chicken you have and this is a great recipe to use leftover chicken as well.
* You might end up with more chicken mixture than needed, it all depends on the size of the squash you have so you might start with half the amount and see if you need more. Keep any leftover mixture in your fridge and use in any other recipe or even stuff it into some sandwiches.
