Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash

We've shared a few spaghetti squash recipes with you, but we have another one we just can't keep to ourselves. As you know, spaghetti squash is light, healthy AND tasty. This buffalo chicken recipe is great because the chicken makes it even more filling, and the buffalo spice gives the meal a nice kick.

2 small-to-medium spaghetti squash
1 (8oz) package of cream cheese
½ cup Frank's Hot Sauce
½ cup ranch dressing
1 large chicken breast or 2 medium chicken breast, cooked and shredded
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

To Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Using a fork, place small holes into the spaghetti squash so it can breath while baking.
  3. Place the spaghetti squash into a large casserole dish and bake for 50 minutes.
  4. Allow the spaghetti squash to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  5. While you are letting the spaghetti squash cool, melt the cream cheese in a large saucepan and mix in the hot sauce. Allow the cream cheese to completely melt.
  6. Add in the ranch dressing and chicken breasts.
  7. Cut the spaghetti squash length-wise in half and scoop out the insides. Place the buffalo chicken on top of the spaghetti squash and sprinkle with the cheddar cheese.
  8. Bake for another 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese has completely melted.

Additionally, anyone else find it fun to scrape out the squash after it is baked? It always amuses me how the squash easily peels out in strands just like spaghetti noodles. Enjoy!
