This creamy, spicy casserole is a delight for the senses. This recipe comes together quickly. The spaghetti squash is the perfect vehicle for the tangy chicken filling, and the blue cheese crumbles elevate the flavor of buffalo wings to an all new level.

Ingredients

  • 1 large spaghetti squash

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

  • 1 medium red bell pepper

  • 1 cup wing sauce (Texas Pete® Extra Mild Wing Sauce or optional “Clean Keto” sauce below)

  • 3 oz cream cheese

  • 1.5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles

  • OPTIONAL “Clean Keto” Wing Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Texas Pete® Original Hot Sauce

  • 1/2 cup reserved chicken broth from recipe

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 teaspoon erythritol sweetener

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil.
  • Use a large spoon to scrape out and discard the seeds and stringy middle portion of each squash half.
  • Brush the cut side of squash with olive oil. Place the squash cut-side down on the baking sheet and roast for 45 minutes or until the squash is tender. (Cooking time will depend on the size of the squash. A sharp knife should easily pierce the squash when it’s done.) Allow to cool.
  • While the squash is roasting, cook the chicken. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine the remaining olive oil, broth, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken. When the broth comes to a boil, lower the heat to medium low and cover the skillet. Cook for 20 minutes or until the chicken is done.
  • Transfer the chicken to a large mixing bowl. Shred the meat with two forks.
  • Drain the liquid from the warm pan and reserve.
  • Return the pan to medium heat, add 2 tablespoon of melted butter, and sauté the bell pepper for 5 minutes, until soft. Transfer the cooked bell pepper to the bowl with the shredded chicken.
  • Return the pan to the medium heat. Add the wing sauce, cream cheese, and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Whisk continuously until the butter and cream cheese are melted.
  • Shred the cooled spaghetti squash into loose noodles and ad to the bowl with the chicken and bell pepper. Add 1 cup of the shredded mozzarella, and green onions. Toss everything well to combine.
  • Pour into a 9×13″ baking dish. Evenly distribute the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese and blue cheese crumbles.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes to heat through and melt cheese.

Notes

  • If you are eating strict, clean keto you can use the optional recipe to make your own wing sauce instead of using a prepared product.
