Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Course dinner
Servings 6


  • 1/2 a medium onion diced 100 g
  • 580 g cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 large spaghetti squash mine was 750g cooked spaghetti squash
  • 1 –2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 c crushed or stewed tomatoes
  • 12 oz adobo/chipotle sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 c low fat shredded cheddar cheese 84g


  • Cook spaghetti squash however you like. You can roast it cut side down which is my preferred method or you just poke it a few times and stick the whole thing in the microwave for 5-8 minutes!
  • Cook your chicken breast (about 3 large ones gave me the amount I needed). I boil mine for 40 minutes and then place in a deep bowl and shred with a hand mixer.
  • Carefully cut the hot microwaved squash in half widthwise, scoop out seeds and insides with a spoon.
  • Using a fork, scrape the squash into strings to get them all loosed from the skin and add them to a very large bowl.
  • Add chicken, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, tomatoes, and chipotle sauce to the bowl with the squash and stir well! It’s a lot, so get ready for an arm workout.
  • Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray and pour the mixture into the dish.
  • Top with cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes till the top is melty and bubbly. If you want it to brown a bit like mine, broil for an additional 3-5 minutes. But watch it closely so it doesn’t burn!
