Ingredients

  • 1 small (2 lb.) spaghetti squash
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 12 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into ¾-inch pieces
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup lite coconut milk
  • ½ large red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 3 tbsp minced cilantro

Directions

  1. Using a large, sharp knife, pierce a spaghetti squash in several places. Place the squash in a glass baking dish and cook in the microwave on HIGH for 12 to 15 minutes, turning the squash halfway through cooking.
  2. Before handling, let the squash stand for 10 minutes. Cut in half and scrape out the seeds and fibers.
  3. Using a fork, twist out strands of the spaghetti squash flesh and place in a bowl. Let stand at room temperature. Save the shells of the squash for stuffing later.
  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Lightly spray with cooking spray. Add the chicken, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through. Add the chicken to the bowl with the spaghetti squash.
  5. Turn the heat down to medium. Add the coconut oil to the skillet. Don’t spread it around as it melts. Add the curry paste, ginger and garlic to the coconut oil. Saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  6. Pour in the chicken broth and coconut milk, and stir to combine with the curry paste mixture.
  7. Add the bell pepper and simmer the sauce until slightly thickened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  8. Return the spaghetti squash and chicken to the skillet, along with the cilantro. Toss to coat with the sauce.
  9. Serve in the reserved spaghetti squash shells.
