Preparation time: 15min
Cooking time: 60min
Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Large Spaghetti Squash
2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts /cut into strips
2 Eggs /beaten
Italian Style Breadcrumbs mixed with some panko breadcrumbs
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Grated Parmesan Cheese
With a sharp knife, slice the squash in half. (If the squash is too tough - puncture in several places forming a dotted line around the squash. Microwave for 3-5 minutes to soften. Allow to cool before cutting in half - following the dotted line). Scoop out the seeds - brush with oil, salt, and pepper, - and roast face down in a preheated oven at 375ËšF (190ËšC) for 35-40 minutes (until a fork can easily pierce the skin).
Meanwhile, slice the chicken breasts into strips. Place flour, beaten egg, and breadcrumbs into three separate bowls. Coat each strip with flour, then egg, and then roll in bread crumbs.
Deep Fry the chicken pieces and set aside on paper towels.
Once the squash has finished roasting - remove from the oven and let it set for a few minutes before turing over and pulling at it with a fork. Shred the inside of each squash, being careful not to poke through the skin. Pour spaghetti sauce over shredded squash. Top with chicken strips, then more spaghetti sauce and finish with mozzarella and parmesan cheese, and a pinch of Italian seasoning. Return to the oven to bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted. Enjoy!
