Spicy Bacon Chicken Bake

I served this yummy casserole on lightly salted baked spaghetti squash. If you have never made spaghetti squash, don’t wait any longer. You need to do it. It’s such a fun veggie.

There are different ways to bake spaghetti squash, you can do a quick google search for them or if you have the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook there are several ways listed on page 224.

My favorite way to bake spaghetti squash is to pierce it 4-5 times and bake it whole in a 350° oven for 1 to 1 ½ hours. Then let it cool for at least ½ hour. After it is cool to touch, slice it in half and remove the seeds. Then take a fork and remove the spaghetti strings. It takes a little while to bake and cool, but it’s so easy to make. You can also freeze the cooked spaghetti squash to have it ready to go for when you don’t have the extra time to bake.

I added sheep cheese to this recipe, but if you need to keep it completely dairy free, feel free to leave it out. You can add an additional tablespoon of nutritional yeast to boost the cheesy flavor.

Trim Healthy Mamas this is an S meal.

  1. I can’t wait to try this one. A Spaghetti Squash is on our counter waiting to be made into something delicious and I think this is the recipe. Thanks again Robin.
