Chicken "Pasta" Bake (Whole30)
This dinner comes together with a few simple ingredients and pleases even the pickiest non-whole30er! so WARM and FILLING and COZY for a winter dinner.
Here’s what you need:
-12 oz. Marinara Sauce (check your labels!)
-1 lb. Shredded, Cooked Chicken
-1 medium-sized Spaghetti Squash
-1 1/2 Tbsp. Fresh Parsley (or dried if necessary, you do you)
Here’s what to do:
Preheat oven to 350°. Stab spaghetti squash a few times and microwave it whole (yep, whole) for 3 minutes on a plate. Rotate it and microwave 3 minutes, then rotate again and microwave 3 minutes (9 minutes total).
Let squash cool a minute or so and then slice it open. Dig out the gooey seedy stuff and discard.
Combine the cooked spaghetti squash strands with the shredded chicken and marinara. Then scramble the egg and stir everything together quickly.
Stir in 1 Tbsp. of the Parsley and then pour mixture into a foil loaf pan. Use a spoon to spread mixture evenly in the pan.
Cover with foil and bake 1 hour. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 Tbsp. of parsley and serve!
I love to keep this in the fridge and take slices to work for lunch- it makes about 3-4 servings. So simple and microwaves REALLY well!
