Buffalo Chicken Casserole

Ingredients

  • 2-3 Chicken breasts (I use crock pot chicken)
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • Frank’s original red hot sauce

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut squash in half (serrated knife makes it easier) and boil for about 10 min or until the flesh can be peirced with a fork. Another method is microwaving the squash for a few minutes and makes it easier to cut, though I have personally never tried this method.
  • Cook chicken in oven, poach or grill. Shred cooked chicken. I use our crock pot chicken recipe when I meal prep.
  • When squash is cool, scrape out insides. Drain off any excess liquid.
  • In a bowl, add squash, shredded chicken, spinach and eggs. Mix to combine. Add in hot sauce and ranch seasoning to your desired heat level and taste.
  • Place into a baking pan  with cooking spray
  •  Optionally, top with reduced fat blue cheese. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
