Lemon Chicken With Spaghetti Squash Recipe
If you love lemony pasta but are looking for a lighter variation, try this lemon chicken with spaghetti squash recipe!
- 4 pieces chicken breast boneless, skinless
- 2 whole spaghetti squash
- 2/3 cup olive oil extra virgin
- 1 whole lemon juiced
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tbs honey
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Put your spaghetti squash in the microwave for about five minutes to soften and then cut lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds, pour a drizzle of olive oil on the inside, and place on a baking sheet with the outside portion facing up.
While the oven is heating, whisk together the olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, oregano, honey, salt, and pepper. Divide the olive oil mixture, pouring ⅓ of the mixture over the chicken, and setting the remaining portion aside.
Add both the chicken breast and spaghetti squash in the oven. Depending on the size of your chicken breast you’ll want it to cook between 20 - 30 minutes. You will leave the spaghetti squash in the oven for a total of 40 minutes.
Once everything is out of the oven you’ll want to let the spaghetti squash cool to avoid burning yourself. After 10 - 15 minutes take a fork and start scraping the inside of the squash over a bowl. The squash should easily come out in thin, spaghetti-like strands. Pour the remaining olive oil mixture over the spaghetti squash and coat evenly.
Divide the squash into four servings and top each serving with a chicken breast. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese onto your portion if you’d like and enjoy! I
