Equipment

  • Baking Sheet, Large Kitchen Knife

Ingredients
  

  • 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

Instructions
 

  • 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
