The Easiest Way To Bake Spaghetti Squash
Spaghetti squash is a grain-free alternative to wheat-based noodles and is full of essential vitamins and fiber. Since it can be difficult to slice when raw, the trick is to bake it in the oven to tenderize the outer skin. This is a hassle-free technique that allows you to easily slice, deseed, and rake out the strands with a fork.
Make sure to save the outer squash halves to use as bowls for serving. You can set them aside as you combine the noodles with chicken, celery, and sauce. Once everything is complete, place the mixture back into the shells and reheat to marry all the flavors.
DIY Your Buffalo Sauce
This buffalo sauce is made by mixing Paleo hot sauce with buttery ghee, but you can also use grass-fed butter instead. You can easily make your own hot sauce with apple cider vinegar, tomato sauce, and spices, but if you’re in a pinch, be sure to buy a bottle of hot sauce that doesn’t contain any added sugars or cornstarch.
To balance out the heat from the hot sauce, we suggest drizzling creamy, herb-rich Paleo ranch all over the top of this buffalo chicken spaghetti squash.
Helpful Tips To Get Started:
- Cook the chicken in advance for easy prep. Store the cooked chicken in the fridge until you’re ready to combine it with the veggies and sauce.
- Double-up on the buffalo sauce. You can use leftover sauce to bake buffalo wings or serve as a dipping sauce for Paleo chicken tenders.
- Store leftovers for later. You can place them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.
