This Low Carb Spinach Chicken Stuffed Spaghetti Squash is the perfect healthy meal for lunch or dinner. It’s easy to put together and is ideal for anyone following a low carb or keto lifestyle.

Low Carb Spinach Chicken Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash has become a favorite of mine in the past few weeks. It’s easy to prepare and there are always leftovers so that I can make multiple meals out of it. I’m still working on the kids and the texture of it (they are still thinking pasta), but I will win them over eventually.

Depending on your availability there are three different methods that I have used to cook my spaghetti squash.

  1. Microwave – Cut in half and remove all the seeds. Place cut side down in 1/2″ of water and put it in the microwave for 8 minutes. Allow to cool
  2. Instant Pot – Pierce the whole spaghetti squash about 10 times and place in the instant pot. Put it on high on the pressure cooking setting for 15 minutes.
  3. Oven – Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the squash in half and remove all the seeds. Place cut side down in 1/2″ of water and bake in the oven for 45 minutes.

For this Spinach Chicken Stuffed Spaghetti Squash recipe, I used the oven method, but as I said before depending on your time, you can use any of the above methods.

Since I’ve been following the keto/low carb diet, I made sure that I loaded it with chicken, spinach, cheese, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Feel free to omit any of the above.
