Chicken Stir-Fry with Spaghetti Squash

Chicken sauteed with mushrooms, asparagus, red pepper and onion atop spaghetti squash.



  1. Slice spaghetti squash in half vertically and clean out seeds.
  2. Place face down on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 °F (190 °C) for 30-40 minutes or until a fork sticks into it easily.
  3. Meanwhile, sauté diced chicken breast and chopped asparagus (1" pieces) in unsalted broth over medium high heat until no pink is showing in chicken, about five minutes.
  4. Add mushrooms, onion and red pepper and cider vinegar. Cover for three minutes over medium heat until soft. Stir in chopped, fresh parsley (or cilantro).
  5. Take spaghetti squash out of oven and let sit five minutes. Scoop the insides out into a bowl and shred with fork. The noodles of squash are like rice noodles.
  6. Drizzle with flaxseed oil, grate fresh nutmeg and sprinkle chopped garlic, tossing and incorporating with a fork.
  7. Make a nest of spaghetti squash, and spoon chicken stir-fry over it or have them side by side to enjoy their separate flavors.

It was an ok dish for my husband and me. If I make it again I will not be adding the nutmeg spice to the speghetti squash - I thought it ruined the original taste way too much. Other than that, it wasn't bad, but not a recipe I'll be making a lot.
